I remembered :)

I remembered to take a pic of the beading project from the book in this post that Sharon RAKed me with.
As soon as I saw this little teacup and saucer I knew I had to do it and after it nagged at me all morning I went (after darts practice) to get the beads I was missing and once I got back home that was it I had to do it.
Go hands up who wondering why there's no saucer?
It's done in flat circular peyote which is something I've done many times before but I just couldn't get it to work this time, I tried for over 3 hours and even tried using the instructions I'm used but it just flatly refused to play ball and work for me so it's saucerless for the time being.
This pic makes it's look quite big but it's only just over and inch tall

That black and white blurred strip in the background is the next one of my beading projects from the class I went to get finished so you will get to see it better never fear.

Back in Feb I took part in the Stitching Olympics over on the Wagon and won Silver in the Sprint (number of finishes) and on Saturday my prize arrived. It must of been on one of the last planes to land here before all the airports closed.

I've added some fabric to my stash clear out blog as well today

The teacup is so cute!

I'm so glad the package finally made it to you. The one I sent to Spain on the same day arrived ages and ages ago. I wonder what happened. I hope there is at lest something in there that you like.
