Beadsoup Blog Party: Shalini's Soup is Served! Finally!

The chef is a lazy sod but I do hope the servings have been worth waiting for? For a while it was Will she, Won't she, Can She? Yes she can! :-)

I didn't get to use any fancy tools like the torch, saw, drill or add ingredients like solder but I did what I could with the lovely ingredients and I think they did not need any extra embellishments to be honest! The fantastic Bead soup from my partner Susan McClelland had enough ingredients in it to just add a bit of wire, a few findings to create this!
The main piece!
And because Susan sent me such a generous helping with 4 Focal Pieces!

Another Main Piece! This was going to be it! I put the rest of the soup ingredients away for a time when my eyes would be in full working condition again. But I got the all clear from iritis and with medication cut down the vision started improving. And the reveal date was postponed by a week.

Some sparkle And some wire-work earrings  And Finally! And while I was busy doing this my partner w…

Beadsoup Reveal Post will be up in the morning

Sorry :-(
If you have clicked the link from Lori's blog to see what I have cooked up with my beads, please bear with me a little bit longer. I only finished some of my pieces today and took photos but they have come out awful so I have to take them again :-(

My eyes are tired and not playing at the moment. The vision is still not 100% and sometimes the blurriness is worse than at other times and that's why the photos are crap! So I will take the pics again in the morning when my eyes are seeing better and then publish my post.

It will be within the 10 May deadline but unfortunately not at midnight BST as I had hoped to, instead around 12 PM BST (ish)

Beadsoup Blog Party: Reveal Date Postponed to 10 May

Beadsoup Blog Party Reveal Date has been postponed by one week to 10 May. Our hostess Lori has been very unwell and its more important that she gets herself better first!

Personally this postponement suits me.

As you know I have not been able to work for almost 3 months due to the stupid Iritis! There have been several ups and downs on that saga since I last blogged about it including a visit to A&E due to acute eye pain and very high eye pressure! The good news is that the Iritis inflammation has finally gone and eye pressure is back to normal. The bad news is that the medication has to continue until 13 May so vision will stay slightly blurred until then. But I was able to get back to doing some work. Nothing fancy, just basic wire work and some fights with cords and ribbons.

My beadsoup partner Susan sent such lovely beads. I managed to make 2 pieces in time for the original reveal date (today) but this extra week means I should be able to use some more of my soup ingredients a…
