No, not eggs but plans. The best laid plans of mice and men etc. Well my excuse is that I'm not a mouse nor a man so I can break my own rules!!!
After Joanie's very kind gift I was prompted to put the beads away tidily. Oh, did I say tidily? Well I'm pretty good at tidying up but absolutely hopeless at keeping tidy so by now my bead stash was really untidy again. This prompted another 'grand tidy up'!!!!
Having spent two afternoons (after my walk) on the floor in front of my tatting cupboard tidying up and sorting all my beads I realised that I certainly don't need anymore for a while. Certainly not large 'feature' beads as I do have quite a few of those. By that I mean ones like I used here and here. I spoke firmly to BC3 and we reached an agreement that no more beads would be allowed in the house.
Well that lasted until yesterday when I went down to the open air market in town. This week they had a charity stall and I really 'needed' to look on it 'just in case' there was anything that may be useful. Now these charity stalls don't come round often and it's a VERY rare occasion when I find something that I can use so I thought it was safe to look.
I found the top bracelet and was well chuffed and after buying other stuff I wandered home. When I got back Nick reminded me I was supposed to get some meat from the 'meat man' so back I went and again was tempted back to the charity stall. This time I found the necklace (second picture). The third picture is of them both together.
Well now you know it wasn't safe to look AND BC3 was missing too!!!
