DSCN1265 B

I love this bouquet! Well I am biased as I made it! lol  Last year I went to a French Beading class at Stitchncraft Beads in Semley, Dorset with the lovely Katie Dean and learnt how to French Bead a rose.  I was hooked! Since then I have French Beaded lots of different flowers and have now made a bouquet.  I took a weeks annual leave from my day job during National Beading week and spent the entire week making this! Sheer bliss lol.DSCN1262 B
