Happy New Year everyone!
Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I made the usual ones of course; eat more healthily, take more exercise and all the other ones that are usually broken by the second week in January, but I also resolved to keep moving forward with my beading. I have exciting plans for an exhibition in 2012 and my butterfly mind keeps flitting to thoughts of that, but first I think that 2011 is going to be all about teaching. I have 6 workshops lined up in the UK and Germany and I'm also planning on making more patterns available to purchase via my website, but all of that means a lot of detailed planning, writing instructions and drawing diagrams instead of designing new beadwork. I do have a head full of new ideas to try out though, so watch this space! In the meantime, I thought I'd remind you that one of my resolutions for 2010 was to start selling patterns directly from my website and I now have 5 available - details below. These are in addition to the 26 patterns that I have had published in magazines since 2008 and you can see details of all those on this page of my website. Most of them are still available from the publishers as pdf's or back issues, so if you see one you like but can't find, drop me a line via the contact form on my website and I'll try and track it down for you. All of the patterns below are available from this page of my website.
Bye for now!
