At last, another challenge and some beading

Where did that week go? My feet didn't touch the ground and so didn't get much crafting done, but what I did manage went wrong!!

Here is my entry for the challenge this week on PTW which is based on one of Katharina's fab sketches, I just love working with these! Thought I would use the opportunity to make another Christmas card, seeing as its only 10 weeks away, so I'm told!
Image is from Funstamps, coloured with Sakura Jelly Roll pens, I found my silver glittery one -yaaay I am sooo happy. BP, text embellishment and brads from Dovecraft, rest from stash. Just couldn't resist adding the crystal effect tinsel around the top - well got to start getting in the Christmas spirit LOL...

I did manage to fit in a bit of beading this week, above is an Xmas bauble I beading recently, going to make some more of these, but have a play with the pattern. I had nearly finished a necklace a friend ordered, just finishing the last row when the thread in the core row must have snapped! Ever feel that someone's got it in for you? I was very good and didn't lose my temper but spent the next hour cutting it up and sorting out the different coloured beads GRRRRR!!!! Must make a start on the replacement!

I finished knitting a waistcoat recently, I'd couldn't decide what size to knit but opted for the medium. Since starting it tho, I have been to WW and lost 2 stone so should have gone for the small. When I tried it on my daughter commented that it made me look like I had put my weight back on - needless to say it has been unpicked and I need to start that again also!

Here's hoping for a better week!
