Off to the Flame Off!

I'm heading up Towcester-way tonight ready for tomorrow's Flame Off.

I've spent my last couple of beadmaking days in the shed 'rehearsing' what I'm actually going to do and say during my demonstrations. It's actually really tricky to describe how I get those lines and squiggles on my beads. I'm hoping that my stringer-applying actions will speak a little bit louder than words.

If you're coming along to the Flame Off tomorrow make sure you come up and say hello!

Oh, and here's a fun link for you. I spent ages (too long, in fact) playing with this! Just click or drag your mouse anywhere on the page.

Thanks Janine & Mark!

Shame you won't be there. I'm sure there'll be lots of photos, though.
