Another day, another contest on! 😀

Erinnert Ihr Euch noch an die kleine Schildkröte, die ich neulich geperlt habe? Ich habe jetzt noch eine zweite fertig und unterwegs ein paar wenige Fotos geschossen.

Within (what feels like) seconds, I had bought four of their patterns and was ready to give myself over to absolute beading frenzy.
