I think I finally broke my creative block. It is nice to see him finished (almost) and after yesterday’s bead disaster – I had about 100 beads laid out on a bead mat which I stupidly put my needle into for one second, pulled the needle out and the bead mat went flying! I tried picking up the beads using one of those sticky clothes rollers but after two minutes of that, my patience deserted me and out came the hoover!
