Welcome to my blog. I have been beading for ten years and there is still a lot to do. I began with crocheting but now I use other techniques too. 32 years ago I joined the "Club of Seamans's-Wives" and we have lived on the Costa Blanca in Spain for 22 years. I have taught beading for 9 years and also work as a translator/interpreter.
For making the first leg I followed the pattern and nearly broke my fingers. So I made the others separatly starting on the feet and then joined the leg to the body with the last element. That was a lot easier.
The weight is nearly the same like the living collegues of this size have.
