I have just put these two small sets of cute little quail in my Etsy shop.  Now I am taking a few days off to rest my wrist.
Thanks for stopping in!

Finally . . . . Some New Beads!

I have just posted these new beads in my Etsy shop. Hope you like them!

Blackbirds .. . .  'Bye 'Bye.

Long Legged Blackbirds.

I hope to be making a few more beads in the near future, however due to my problems with my thumb and wrist joints they will not be large sets.  I can only bead for short periods at a time with several days break in between.  For that reason, I will also no longer be taking any orders - sorry :O(

Thanks for stopping in!

Remember me?

No - well I don't blame you.  It has been ages since I made an appearance here.  I haven't been doing much in the way of torching, as my wrist/thumb joints are giving me a LOT of grief.  I'm not sure just how long I am going to be able to keep making beads.  Hopefully my plan of pacing myself and only torching a couple of times a week will help - time will tell.

I did manage to get enough beads together for the Spring show - Kitty Coleman, Woodland Gardens this last weekend.  The show was not very well attended by both vendors and customers alike, and on Saturday it literally poured down, so that day was a write off.  Sunday and the holiday Monday were much better, and sales picked up - not as good as previous years though.  All the vendors were saying the same thing.  I suspect everyone is "craft-faired out" and not interested in adding any more art of any kind to their collections.  Despite all that, I had a good time, and enjoyed catching up with all the other vendors.

Here are a couple of photos of my booth.  I was on my own this time, as my usual booth partner was home with family issues.

I will try and be a little more consistent in posting - but no promises! LOL.
Thanks for dropping in.
