A visit to Hobbycraft

I dream about going into "Hobbycraft" shop with unlimited budget and spending there as much time as I like without someone rushing me. Unlimited budget for me is about £300 I think.

I visited this shop last weekend and bought a little kit to make some decorations for our christmas tree. It said on the box one could make 6 icicles but I've discovered I can make 8! What a bargain!!!

This is a product of the inspiration I had yesterday.

Last August on holiday in St Ives I bought some bits and bobs to make jewelry. There is a lovely shop there on the harbour called GJ beads. I always go in there when I visit St Ives.

I found the pattern here. This symbol immediately attracted my attention and I decided to have a go at it.

It turned out 2 inches long (5cm). 8 beads base. #11 Matsuno seed beads.

How I am thinking what to do with it. Any ideas?
