I have been doing a lot of beading & reading over the last few days.
This bracelet above is full of jasper beads (the picture's a bit blurry cause I took it too early this morning.) It's going to be a Christmas present for a friend.
The weather feels like it is warming up and the bulbs I planted a few months ago are starting to flower - wish I had saved the packets because now I cant remember what they are called! They are beautiful - whatever they are- and I'll put a picture up here in a few days.
