Just a quick note to say 'hi', I'm still here. I have made some beads but my poor oxycon is still not 100%. In case you're wondering the oxycon is a reconditioned NHS oxygen concentrator which is rigged up to my torch with propane to give a nice hot flame. It is essential to the bead-making process. I am going to poke around inside it tommorrow, and if I have no joy I think I'll have to invest in a new one - Yikes! And yes, I would love to include a photo of said beads but we seem to be encountering technical difficulties with the camera!!!!
I went on a jaunt around the countryside on Tuesday with my OH, we finished up in Bradford on Avon which is a very pretty town on the edge of Bath. We visit BoA periodically, but haven't done so in a while. We went on wander up Silver Street and stumbled upon Jumble Jelly Oh my goodness! What a fantastic shop, it is eye-candy to any yarn and fabric addict, even the OH was impressed. Beautiful products, beautifully displayed, it was so hard to walk away without making a purchase. I am currently working on a blanket which I am determined to finish before I move on to the next project. They do hold a 'Knit and Natter' session, which I am definitely going to attend, along with some very tempting workshops.
If you are ever passing Bradford on Avon it is well worth a detour to visit, there is also a fab-looking ice cream parlour which I will definitely taking the children to.
