I've felt more like experimenting recently with the lovely range of colours I have in the mercerised cotton yarns and glass bead stash.
These are two of the end results, currently for sale in my Etsy shop:
This was my first play, in beautiful aquamarine shades which I seem to be drawn to at the moment.
Must be something to do with catching glimpses of the sea so frequently!
The second one is also inspired by the coastline, with a combination of neutrals, browns and blues - more like the sand, rocks, and sky.
I really enjoy combining the colours, threading the beads on to the yarns and crocheting them together right now.
Of course this means I'm on the lookout for more large-holed beads to use, so I'll have to go bead shopping during my time off work next week. :-)
