Bevan has got me reading Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk. I know I'm not like him, but he has a lot of valid points, the hugest being that we can't ignore social media.
I was on the blog, Robin and the Sage and was reading how she was feeling uninspired and showed us pics of her VERY tidy and organised studio. The light was all soft and mellow, nothing like the light we have here in South Africa. Harsh and bright. It's also going to be 30 degrees C today.
So here are some pics of the bright studio, which is not so tidy. The room is not very big and storage of the beads presented a bit of a problem. I resorted to plastic boxes in stackable baskets. One basket for gemstones and pearls, one for glass beads, one for all the metal components and one for the bigger boxes of seed beads. It works okay, but every now and again I have to go through the beads, just to remind myself what I have. When I'm seated at the beading table the beads are on either side of me. Not ideal but it works okay for now.

I'm on the knitting stint now. I've finished the back of Claire's jersey and want to finish the back of Joce's in the next day or two.
I'm also busy filling the bezels I bought the other day. Bevan said he was going to attempt some bezels, which he'll make from recycled aluminium.
I've managed at last to finish The Winner Stands Alone. Still found the book disappointing. I've now started Step on a Crack by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. I've no idea where a got the book from, maybe the second hand book store at Glenhaven Retirement Village where Mom stays. Just started, so its early days still to decide what I think of it. I also started the book at 12h00 last night, so I don't know how much I absorbed.
