Finally got around to making this bracelet today.
As crazy as it sounds, I really struggle to do things in a haphazard way (which is how I wanted this) - I always want things to be in order. In the end I had to muddle all the beaded safety pins up and pick them randomly. I like how it looks but will probably do a solid colour or banded colour one next time.
I might go away for a few days tomorrow but then again I may not. I don't really feel like being anywhere but my own home at the moment but on the other hand I think it might do me good to get away. I find the temptation to not go anywhere or see anyone very hard to resist sometimes.
