This weekend I went to sunny Redcar in Middlesbrough. (Pics to come). I caught up with my uncle and his wife who I haven’t seen for over 10 years.
I thought it might be awkward but it wasn’t. In fact it was really enjoyable. The 12 hour round journey was worth it.
Well, my uncles wife does beading. Bead craft. Making her own jewellery amongst other things. She is brilliant. Some of the pieces she makes she gives away to a charity to sell. Others she sells it passes on as gifts.
Now I would LOVE to make my own bling. But it looks soooooo complicated. But as my uncles wife teaches, she gave me a crash course and a bag full of goodies to try myself.
It’s definitely an art where practise makes perfect. But last night at about 11.30pm half asleep after a day of travelling my amazingly patience aunt helped me make my own bracelet!!!!!
So what do you think?
