Deep Blue...

Here is a long necklace I made a couple of days ago using various assorted deep blue glass beads that I have gathered lately - some are from a bargain bag from the bead fair, some are from E-Bay, and some I already had, all hung on dark blue wire. I love this shade of blue glass - my parents collected various vases and ornaments in this colour, and when they died we split up the collection between the four of us siblings, so we all have a weakness for the colour! I have been known to hang on to simple water/wine bottles just because they are blue glass - the kitchen windowsill has a row of pretty and interesting blue glass bottles.
Anyway, I digress! This necklace is £15 + p&p. It is long enough to go over your head twice to make a double strand if you feel like a change.

I'm still knitting the *!^%$$*! skating dress, and completed half the skirt so the end is in sight (would be of anyone wearing it too, haha!) Very frustrating however, as I'd rather be beading....

Lovely colour blue!!
We have some old glass medicine bottles in this colour on a shelf in the kitchen, most of them I bought as a present for Laurence from an antique centre.

I came here from Penny's blog and very glad I am that I did (forgetting my own grammar now that I'm trying to speak French as much as I can)

I also love blue things (I guess everyone does really)
