Bead the Raven

Once upon a midnight bleary, whilst I beaded to music eerie
Poring over many a pattern and book from the beading store
Whilst I beaded, nearly napping, accidentally sometimes stabbing
The bead tray slips and I am grabbing, grabbing with my finger sore
Argh I mutter, my finger sore,
And now all my beads are on the floor
Ack, my beads – I will lose them and there will be no more

There will always be more beads – but sometimes, just not the beads you want. And sometimes, you accidentally buy the beads you already have – which is why this particular update may be the smallest we’ve ever done, because after I had processed the new items for this week – we found out that about half of them, we already had, by a different name. In other words, a Czech Glass Starbell Flower in Mango would bead as sweet as one in Apricot – because it’s the same flower bead! Likewise Violet Speckle and Mauve Gold Lustre. You can see where I am going with this.

So we do have new flower beads – just not as many as I thought we did!

We do, however, have a full-time, awesome selection of flower beads, and leaves too, for that matter.
