It amazes me that on Summer school, or any work shop I attend, I can get so much done in such a short amount of time. I can procrastinate for England when at home, there is always the food shopping or washing, vacuuming etc to do, and yes I can sit at the computer and blog when I should be working on my coursework! So I shall hopefully be posting each evening what I have done each day. Even if it is only a small amount.
Today I shall be working on the Bead Samples. I have 4 canvasses ready and here is what I have done so far.
This sample will show how three different sizes of beads can cover a square in three ways, sparcely through to completely.
