Dulcie has been at my mum and dad's this morning and, in a bid to make sure today was better than yesterday, I decided to do some making in my new craft corner. First of all I made these mix-and-match fridge magnets for Dulcie using a heads and tails game I found in a charity shop and some magnetic tape, also found in a charity shop! I'd been planning to make these for many moons, but seeing a similar project in Jane Foster's new book spurred me into action at last. They were so quick and satisfying and are really cute. I hope Dulcie likes them.
Once I'd warmed up with that little activity, I embarked on the first of my Craftathon 2015 crafts. Yeah, remember Craftathon 2015?! I might be slow off the mark, but I'm making a start at last and tackling bead weaving. Bead weaving? Beading? Loom beading? I don't know what you call it, but making things with beads and threads on a loomy type thing.
This make is SLOW! And very fiddly and a little bit frustrating. Plus I have no confidence that it will work because the black beads are much smaller than all the other colours for some reason (annoying) and I expect that will make it go wonky. Ah well, I'm giving it a bash anyway, though I have a feeling this might take most of 2015 to complete and will it be worth it? Probably not.
Can you tell what it is yet? I know one person who might be able to guess.
