Since my last post, I have been extremely lucky to win the Preciosa competition! I entered my turquoise and silver set, with the theme of balls and masks. The prize was 1 kg worth of assorted traditional Czech beads from Preciosa, along with special extra gifts.
Apart from that, I also made this black and white owl. As the nights are getting shorter, keep your eyes peeled for any of these birds still out in the early daylight hours, trying to make the most of the hunt. You may see them skimming the long golden grass of a field, or swooping among branches in parks or forests. As always, I hope you like it.
