I have failed to keep up on my Blogtoberfest every day posting!! Slappy Handy!!
Days just seem to be whizzing by and I haven't been around to organise what I wanted to post about!
I really am going to have to play catch up now but not necessarily in the order of my original schedule! I am not good a time keeping so why I thought I could keep to a schedule I really don't know!!! Ha ha!!
So Saturday Snippets
I headed off to the Big Bead Show at Sandown Park in Esher, Bead Magazine's Bead Show and their British Bead Awards, the winners where announced and Best in Show voting by the Bead Show attendees, I placed my vote but I didn't win any giveaway prizes though!
I did, however, get a bit carried away and my 'flexible friend' suffered a bit!
Tools were on the list amongst other things ~~ wire mainly but I did need that for my workshop which I might add is looming up fast on the 2nd November. I have some students booked on it so its a Goer, YAY! Need to make sure I have the necessary wire for that.
Well back to the TOOLS!
Top of my list was Letter Stamps for metal. TICK got those! You might see my endeavours in the future.
New pair of wire cutters. TICK got those with orange handles no less!
Pin vice, TICK. Another pair of Nylon coated pliers, TICK got those! Digital Calipers, TICK. And a Center Punch, TICK to them all!
I did get a few beady things which included some solder paste and some st. silver beads and bead caps from Palmer Metals. Gosh won't I be a busy beader!!! Whoahoo!!!!
I didn't get the wire as the supplier wasn't at the show so will need to order that on line, but I think I did quite well! 80))
And it was also my Wedding Anniversary so a lovely Chinese Takeaway for Tea!! Yum yum!
Next ~ The Sunday Gathering
I have got a few new beads to show you along with some new headpins which I have listed in my Etsy store
Jumbo Chatelle Beads
Leaves Headpins on copper wire
Sea Urchin Buttons and beads
Just as few new things.
I do need to do some forum bits and bobs but will pop back to do that when I have sorted it out.
That's about it for now
