Welcome ..... Well here it is .... the Clock change weekend in the U.K . The last weekend on October .
WE gain an extra hour of rest ... but in a couple of weeks time darkness starts to draw in late afternoon.
Personally I suffer a little with S.A.D. Like everyone I miss the hours of light and all that comes with it .
I plan , each year , to keep busy in the evenings . At this time I tend to turn to bead work.
I have done Bead work for many years . Happily learning about new techniques , new styles
and most interesting of all new beads from shape to what they fit best with , technique wise.
Bead channels on You-Tube are quite prolific . Some better than others . They all have one thing in common their love of design colours and beads . Putting them all together to make some really beautiful costume Jewellery. Ideal as gifts for all. There is so much to learn .
No Craft style or technique is ever as simple as it looks ... many of them cross over .... from one craft to another . They integrate and offer new concepts as they change . The wonder of learning ! It is never too late to learn .
Adding bead work to my CRAFT PORTFOLIO .... we all have one ...( and it looks good in print .) .lol. Was as natural as walking from A to B for me . You never know what you can do
until you try... Cliche I know but a truer word was never spoken .
Take advantage of the long evenings .... as long as you have good light everything is possible ..add a new arrow to craft bow !
Happy Crafting . Stay well and warm . xx
