Beaded Scarves

Good afternoon all.
The day isn't going according to plan....hubby in his wisdom "helped" out yesterday by dismantling the hoover and cleaning it all, leaving the filter to dry under the radiator in the kitchen. Meanwhile younger son brought the dog into the kitchen for the evening and she decided the filter looked good enough to eat. Hence I spent an hour and £20 trying to source a new filter this afternoon and don't have a hoover to use until it arrives! Grrrrrrrrr!!

I eventually got some of my beaded scarves made last week to give as Christmas pressies. They proved fairly simple to make thankfully, with the right tools and a set of instructions!
Seen here being reluctantly modelled by my daughter.

All of the scarves came from Crafter's Companion when they had their birthday week sale on. We have a bead shop in town where I bought my tool kit and they have monthly beading classes so I may go in the New Year to learn some tricks of the trade....could be heading down another slippery slope here lol.
