How easy are our kits?

This is a difficult one! I always write instructions with new beaders in mind, so our kits are ideal for new or experienced beaders. Some kits have only 1 stitch so are more straight forward, others may have a combination of stitches or variations so will take a bit more time and perhaps more thought. So we have come up with a range of symbols to help you decide which one to do. Take a look at the kits pages and see for yourself.

Spring is on the way - new kits are already here

If you've been on our Facebook page you will see our little snowdrop. So, yes, spring must be on the way. In preparation I have produced 2 new kits.

The first is a bracelet adorned with spring flowers all made with seed beads. The workshop sample was much admired by visitors to the Beading Room so I have made it available to everyone. The Spring Flowers Bracelet Kit is now available in 2 colours - bluebell and pink - and is priced at just £7.95.

The second kit is another design by Margaret Jones that I just loved as soon as I saw her wearing it. Seed beads, crystals and bugles are used for The Queen of Diamonds Bracelet Kit which  is available in 2 colours - Topaz and Sapphire - and is priced at £14.25.

Yep! We have finally got there.
We have opened up a facebook for Halfpenney's
I know it has been a long time coming.
We will have easy access from our web site soon, and -- now we have to think of things to put on?

I'm sure you don't want to hear about our Christmas antics, what with a barbeque on Christmas eve, an edible garden (all Kathy's inspiration) on Boxing day, jiving on New Years eve, a long walk to get a new Norton Internet security disc followed by more dancing of modern sequence and - you've guessed it - more jiving.
Think I'll go and lie down.

In the meantime I will think of some more beady things to say, whilst Kathy gets back to her beaded houses.
