Glass Beadmakers UK) and was lucky enough to have a class with Carol Passaro on how to make a beaded Bezel. It was really lovely sitting around with a group of gals and working on a project together, time just flew by with all of the cheeky chat and laughing, a refreshing change from making beads in the studio at home with the radio for company.
I finished my project at home a few days later and even though I had to unpick it and start over 3 times I learnt a lot and am pleased with it, especially as a first attempt. Needless to say this necklace featuring a lovely Cabochon by Debbie Dew was quickly smuggled away into my Daughters treasure box.
Things are ticking along slowly with the dolls house renovations. I've sourced and bought some tile and brick paper for the outside of the house and my friend Sam has had a rummage and sent me a perfect front door and fancy yellow and white window frames too, exciting stuff. She also sent some very cute little bits and bobs for the inside including a tiny little loo roll holder including a roll of paper! These little details really make me smile.

This morning the kids and I spent a productive hour stripping as much
paper as we could off of the walls and roof. It would be fair to say we
trashed our living room with all the little scraps of paper and sticky
flooring but the worst of the job is now done. I also took out some very
old and defunct lighting fittings and wiring. I'm not planning to put in a
working lighting system into the house this time around because the kids
are eager to get on and play with it! Maybe next time....
Wishing you a lovely lazy Sunday
