BJP 2014 Beach Huts 7 & 8

I knew my last two beach huts were for two more groups of friends. Hut 7 was going to be for my crafting friends and although I knew it would include a bit of knitting or crochet, some felting and of course beading I wasn't sure where to start so I decided to do the other hut first. This hut is for a group of friends I made whilst teaching so an owl charm was chosen and some blue/green beads the colour of the college logo. The owls sits on a branch which I tried to continue with beads and set him on a silvery moon background. I have good memories of working with my friends and students but don't miss having a timetable and all the paperwork. Now when we meet up or go away for a few days life is much more relaxed.

At my felting group I was needle felting a small Christmas tree for a Christmas decoration and it sparked the idea of decorating the final beach hut for Christmas for my crafting friends. That decision made it was so enjoyable beading a wreath for the door, hanging lights around the roof, decorating the tree and finally wrapping a present.

to all my friends at the' knit & knatter' groups at Stash and M&S, the felting group and everyone at The Stables Gallery, the Cheshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers  and of course everyone in the Beading Journal Project of 2014. Thanks for all the help, encouragement and inspiration over the year.
