I splashed out on some patterns recently from Threadabead and here's the first one completed.
One is going to my bowls captain who has retired this year from the job and she has spent the last couple of years training up yours truly who has been dumb enough to take over!
The other is the first of many that I'm doing on behalf of a friend who is having a stall on Charity market in a couple of months time.
I came across the pattern for a thimble at The Bead Loom Gallery when looking for 2 drop peyote patterns to take part in a bead a long and fell in love with them.
I bought one pattern and discovered that I didn't have the right size rivoli for it :( because my fingers were itching to make one I just had to go back and buy another pattern that would use one of the one's I had.
I can see more of these in my future
