Before Christmas I bought a Hama beads set which was reduced. I know they are for children but I love them-bright and colourful and quite fun to do if you are a bit tired and can't manage much else. The only other things I have made were three camels, and now I have made three girls too. Here is one of them and her portrait in my journal.

Bits and Pieces
A few things I have been making and doing recently. Mainly my making time has been taken up with a crochet blanket that seems to be taking forever and which I am now a bit fed up with and so doing slower. I try to do a few rows a night but over the last week have only done about four. I am determined to finish it though, if only to get rid of all the cotton yarn I have bought!
I have got the brusho out again. The colours are so intense and mix beautifully.
A pair of strange girls done in Brighton last weekend. I used Derwent coloursoft pencils which are lovely-soft as they say in the name, and also quite intense colours.This quote made me laugh.
The felty tree I mentioned the other day and the initial sketch. Also a felt head based on the other sketch-inspired by the rainbow pom-poms which are lovely and felt onto the base well.
Off to finish a little felty thing now and have a glass of wine.
