“it's my birthday & i'll”


Description from franny: & i'll have all these, thank you!...well,they have arrived & the colours are glorious; such a distraction so close to Xmas as i just want to play beadies....hmmm? shall we have the tango jade teardrops dangling from the blackspot rounds or from the blue haze?..sigh.. decisions, decisions!...64 today, 18/11 and I feel so inspired!... my partner surprised me with a beautiful book by a Japanese beader & i'm sitting on the couch like a little kid avidly reading & sorting beads at the same time...will be content with take-away pizza & champers for dinner! LOL

    Thank y’all…you sing beautifully, Granny, thank you for authentic rendition…my choices are rather lairy i know & worse still, i’m combining them…the little candied carrots make great mushrooms with the funky agate saucers!…if there’s a down side to this fun, it’s probably that no-one else will want them but hey, that’s not too bad!…errr.. also i’ve not yet mastered finishing techniques; crimps,clasps, beadcaps etc, are way out of my projections & expertise ( paper clips come in very handy!)LOL

    Happy Birthday Franny. What a womderdul gift to yourself. I don’t vlame you for wanting to.just sit and play. As far as learning techniques like crimping. I did that for only the 3rd time yesterday and I didn’t do bad at all. 16 of the little buggers. Hid all the ugly with a bead cap. You can do it.
    Also lucky you with the birthday book!!

    I have and do lots of errors (not so old in this game me either), one learn a lot through those errors. The only thing thats annoys me is the lost material…
