Beads galore

I've been to a bead fair at Haydock race course today and spent way to much but at least now I'm all set to do all the Christmas decorations/ornaments/presents that I want to get done this year. And I can now finish the beaded needlecase I started at a weekly class I used to go right before they stopped so we never found out how to finish them off (plus the book has some really cool patterns in)
I love these charms and I'm thinking they would work on the back of exchanges & Christmas ornaments
Pretty colours
More pretty colours

And lastly this weeks update on Mary Busby.
I did have the flower pot that goes with bloom done but I've discovered that the part done yellow motif, C and the blue have all got to come out as they are one stitch too far over to the left and it will be too much of a headache to try and fudge it for the remaining 2/3rds of the sampler.
I am not amused

wow what a lot of beads. my eldest daughter has just started making bead necklaces and handbag accessories so she would have had a whale of a time at the show.

How did I miss the bead fair at Haydock.

I've read you for a while, but never realised that we live near each other!

I actually work in Haydock, but live further into St Helens.

And there was me thinking I was the only stitcher in the village x

Just enjoyed a browse around your lovely blog. Caleb is such a little sweetheart & you have so many beautiful projects. The beaded bag is stunning! So envying your bead stash. LOL :0)

You bought lots of beads from Pandorian! They are my local bead shop and I go there to do my City and Guild course. Was it Jean who sold to you? (She calls everyone 'dear') She is very nice and always despairs of me because I buy the long tubes of beads (27g) and keep asking her to make them up for me!
