Beads and beyond ...

I'm still busy growing lots of new beady things for the Midnight Garden and I will show you pictures of them when I can, but in the meantime I wanted to share some good news with you.  When I attended the Craft Hobby and Stitch International show at the NEC recently, I met the editors of the UK magazine Beads & Beyond and not only did we have a lovely chat about all things beady, they also offered to give me space in their regular 'Meet and Greet' feature to answer 12 questions and talk about my current work.  It was all a last minute rush and I was actually on holiday in Spain when the questions were emailed to me, so while we were at the beach one day, I scribbled some notes and asked my husband to take a new profile picture of me wearing a piece from the Midnight Garden and then I emailed everything off as soon as I returned home.  If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will know about my current obsession with colour (or rather the lack of it!) and so I was very happy when I saw that not only had my photos come out OK, but that the magazine had also colour-coordinated everything so that the header and the text for the questions pick out the colour in my beadwork and my carefully arranged profile picture!  I have included a picture of the article below so that you can see what I am talking about, but of course I have blurred the text - if you would like to read my answers to those thought provoking questions, the latest issue of Beads & Beyond (issue 56) is now on the shelves or available to purchase on-line


Bye for now!
