I have almost finished this cuff; if I hadn't run out of beads I would have finished it days ago. But now it's lying around incomplete, looking all gorgeous, spring-like and deeply flawed. Even as I was beading it I spotted several mistakes, but talked myself out of going back and correcting them.
Big mistake. Every time I look at it now all I see are the errors. I've tried to ignore them but there they remain, nagging away in the back of my mind.
Am I in danger of over-blowing this minor mishap into a major crisis? Yes, I am.

So, the decision is made: Today I will mostly be unraveling this cuff and starting again. This time I'm going to add in some size 11 beads to highlight the pearls on the outer edges and not make any mistakes.

I can't help myself.

Urchin Crazy

I cannot stop making these rings. Thank goodness for that! I was beginning to think the Obsession had waned. Yet one simple brainwave and I am beading before breakfast and into the small hours.... Six so far. Expect more photos.
