No crafting today! I got up and got my beading fix watching Sarah - I always manage to pick up a tip or two. I then whiled away an hour or so chatting to my pal in Devon whilst I waited until it was time to go to the hospital to the chiropodist (there is one advantage of this diabetes lark in that I get free foot treatment!) I can now walk again!
Then to beat the rain forecast for tomorrow, I decided to continue with the painting that is needed in the garden (having tackled the swing yesterday) and almost finished the 4 benches! I was cream-crackered by dinner time, and really didn't feel up to cooking - so IMindoors went to the chippy - very naughty I know, but it is a rare treat for us.
I wasn't even up to crafting tonight - but if it is going to rain tomorrow no doubt I shall get my fix then! I did manage a trial necklace last night with some string, whilst watching Holby - not too sure about it. I like the effect, but it is quite thick, and beads with very large holes are difficult to come by. Not sure what it will be like to wear - I will probably add some proper necklace findings to it, which will make it better to wear, or I may undo it, and redo it into some keyrings, or maybe make a macrame type bracelet with beads. (I saw a pattern when googling the other day). Can't make up my mind. This is what it looks like - quite pretty lilac and blue string.
and just to show my painting efforts in the garden :
heck there are an awful lot of sides on slatted furniture! (and don't look at the weeds on the patio! bending to paint is bad enough! - looks like the boiling water treatment is required to kill them first and make it easier to remove them!) I do like the colour I chose though, and the tablecloth I bought the other week at the French Market matches perfectly!
