I had to take today slower than usual. I spent most of yesterday in bed with a tummy bug which has thankfully all but gone now - we've had too many bugs in this family recently and I'm fed up with them! T had gone into school to do some prep in peace and quiet during the first couple of days of the Easter holidays, but I had to call him to come back home to look after the boys. The only way yesterday's tutorial was posted was because I was very organised on Monday and wrote and scheduled it in advance!
So today was spent finishing and packaging orders from the weekend (if you haven't taken advantage of the discount code over on Art Bead Scene, it's still valid!) and finishing the necklace above - more macrame in a gorgeous shade of dark dusky pink to finish an amethyst and silver necklace with the most beautiful Moogin lampwork bead I have ever worked with. The colours inside the bead blend from lilac to green encased in clear glass that Mindy has decorated with such lovely flowers. The colours really glow.
