Has anyone been lucky enough to see any Northern Lights yet? It's been a bit cloudy in the evenings here, so any charged ion particles (I love Professor Brian Cox) have been hidden from view.
However, the solar activity has spread to my work-table! I was asked to make some Sunburst Earrings for my sister-in-law after she saw the green and purple ones on Folksy. She wanted red ones, and guess who didn't have enough red seed beads? So. Where could I find red seed beads before sis-in-law went home to Scotland? My local pound shop came up trumps once again. A multi-strand beaded bracelet had three strands of red seed beads mixed in with some larger plastic discs - saved! Duly purchased, cut up and re-threaded. I hope she likes them!
