And Now For Some Bling

The penultimate day of reaching into the Royal Mail pouch - c'est domage! It was a small package today, but worth it:

Beads! Small red and gold and pink beads. Pretty blingy beads in little bags. They speak to this girl's blingy heart. Yes, yes they do.

I will now need to devise another method to add them to projects, since I don't have a crochet hook small enough to get through the holes. I am undeterred. Once again, thanks Tanya!

I thought I would take this opportunity to provide links to those blogs that took part (or will imminently be blogging about taking part) in The Blog Hub Swap - just in case you might want to join in on the week-long giftapalooza next time.

  1. So, does that mean you were the Grand Organizer??

    I've caught a few posts on some of these blogs along the way... it's been fun reading the excitement. :-)

    1. No, I wasn't the Grand Organizer - that would be Kismet's Companion. :) Nevertheless, I thought it might be nice for readers to see other's swappy gifts and put all of it into some kind of context.

  2. Ooh, I didn't know you needed a small crochet hook sorry, I thought you just threaded them on to the yarn using a beading needle and pulled them up with your yarn when you were including one in a stitch. So much has been learnt from this swap! One more day left... :0)

    1. Well, a beading needle is another way to go about it! That's why I said no worries - I'll come up with Plan B. Since I've only used beads in crochet projects, the crochet hook method is all I've used thus far. :)

  3. I think you can use a beading needle or dental floss - I've definitely seen dental floss mentioned somewhere ;)

    The beads are really pretty :)

    1. Thanks! I've gotten a URL and everything. :)

      And the beads are pretty - I agree.

  4. Hi Denise, if you look in the area where they sell floss, you will find a package of something called floss threaders, they are fine plastic loops used for threading floss between bridgework and they are wonderful for beading!

    1. Thanks so much for the tip! See, I knew we'd come up with Plan B. :)
