I can't believe it's almost a whole week since I last posted.
Things at work have continued to be hectic and increasingly stressful, culminating in a mock ofsted inspection today.
The pupils were at least as badly behaved as ever and in some cases much worse but I have come through it and not only am I feeling relief that the pressure's off for a little while (well until the real thing!) but pleased that I received very positive feedback on my lesson.
I have been making sure that I make a little "me" time and have attempted to relax by making some beaded hearts.
They are made by simply threading beads onto wire, then twisting the two ends together and bending into shape. I then added ribbon et voila!
The red and silver heart is made with a mixture of round glass faceted beads and red bicones interspersed with small silver coloured beads that I recycled from a Primark necklace. The cream and gold heart is made entirely from beads recycled from a Primark bracelet and the wooden beads are some that I bought when I first started jewellery making, but have never got around to using till now.
