Back in the saddle!

Well, these last few weeks have been a roller coaster of things happening – good and bad.  The good news is that Life now is as back to normal as it can be and I can concentrate on all things Jacobeadery (and Beadability) now.

I was really excited to see The Jacobeadery advert in the Beadworkers Guild Journal this month – brought it home that the biz is real and not just in my head!  We’re now ‘out there’ and live – scary!

I’ve been working on the wire edge ribbon brooch and, although the first and second versions were not totally up to scratch I’m going to include the second version in the kit.  A different beaded centre is going to be shown as an alternative to the bud centre – no photos of the beaded centre as yet!

Another project I’m working on is a box with my first major embroidery piece Daphne on the lid.  That’s still in drawing format and I have yet to cut any materials yet.

I’ve also got an advent calendar lined up for getting ready this week – hopefully it will be ready for Haydock Bead Fair on 1st October even if we do go to France.    Will post details as and when ready!

But for now, it’s back to repacking all the Basic Kits into A5 bags – they look much more professional than the bigger A4 ones used to date.
