Jewellery making

After making so many jewellery, earrings, bracelets and necklaces and I dont get any satifactions anymore. I decided to take up glass bead making class. To make my very own beads. Its a great experience when you have your own beads and make your own design. Full satisfactions! Knowing that we are moving, I cant commit to get tools for the glass beads. I would need my own space in the garage too. Our instructor Ms. Dinah is wonderful and such a talented lady.
Other than beading, I also started making tote bags. I dont have a lot of time for it nor I made pretty ones like Doris but Im working on my third bag. My second bag was a mess.....but you know, you learn from mistakes. I took a basic tote bag class as Doris recommended to do it the proper way ;)...Im glad I did. Im also looking forward to make dresses, pants and more. Make use of my pretty little fingers and put them to work.
What else happen for the past few weeks...hhmm...My lord big Chief Your Highnest(LBCYH), Larry is in China for 3 weeks. We are yet to get any offer for our house. Minnesota sounds cold and chilling. 2 years without Gawai. Talking about Gawai....

Banana Bread Recipe

2 cups of flour
3 eggs
1 cup of bananas ( 3 ripes)
1 cube of melted butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of sugar
I got this recipe from my colleague Semisi and it is not bad at all. He brought the banana bread to work one day and said that he is the only ones in the family that would eat it. All his kids said it was nasty. But I tried it and liked it and got the recipe from him.
Note that I was confuse with baking powder with baking soda, both are different item that create different reactions. I doctored the recipe a bit by not adding too much sugar and added some hazel nuts and almonds.....ohohohhhhh! It was YUMMY!
