I have just returned from my jaunt around Europe aboard The Black Watch.Had a brilliant time,good fun and good company.
I needed the break badly,so feeling a bit more rested and refreshed.Also bought some chain for new designs.I did not find any bead shops but drew a lot of inpsiration from the colors and sights in La Coruna and Vigo.Lisbon was nice,but we really needed some more time to explore.Will return to Galicia when able.Gibralter is just the same as it was on my last visit,some four years ago,still very commercial.I was most inpressed with Vigo,very pretty city and lovely people.I will post photos on Facebook sometime today.
I will be organising my daughter,s 21st birthday this week,so I will not get much designing done.I might sneak into my studio if very lucky for an hour or two.I am entering Beads and Beyonds mixed media competition,so as soon as dust settles from party will be busy on that.I have already got the bones of my design in my head so just need to gather supplies and get going.Love to all my creative friends,Anne.
