I would never have guessed you were German, you "speak" wonderful ?American, ?English  (these days I don't know what to call what "I" speak--It's certainly not what the Brits speak, which is where English came from, so I guess "I" speak Amemrican.  Whatever you are learning, you "speak it like a native!) 

Really like a native? :oD that is good, because i think lots of the time i mess up the grammar, but as long as i can make myself understandable:)). well i pick up vocabulary from american and english and mixing it, i noticed i confuse the spellings, but i don't mind it. Only if i do translation for someone i watch out for it.

Do you have a date set yet?  I can't wait to hear all about the wedding.  Do you have an account on Facebook? 

we haven't got a date yet, but its our sure plan for the next 2 years, it will be difficult to get the right time of the year, because we have our relatives in England and Germany who all want to come. From Facebook i stay away, i don't trust the site anymore. But when it is the time i maybe post a photo here, as well because Beadflowers Katie just inspired me to make my own wedding bouquet with her new book in french beading (have a look in the readers showcase). If i can make it so pretty as she does, then i have got to show off with it of course :).

Do you find that your crochet gives you inspiration for your beading

When i was younger i did crocheting with wool, but not anymore, i am very focused on beading now... actually it is the beads and pearls that give the inspiration and what gorgeous things i see from other beaders, thats giving me the kick to try a lot. i found with simple chain stitch crocheting a way to do lovley bracelets, i just try to do it with more beads in every loop, so that it curls like a spiral, so even with tigertail its getting elastic and looking full. This and the famous crocheting with seedbeads is the only one i can do so far. This is a photo of my favorite with the chain stitch crocheting (hope its the right words).

To sew the own clothes would be very handy and lovley, i would love that like you, i am into romantic cloth too, i so love it a bit nostalgic and oldish. I am not sure if the germans are better in that, can't be, but i am content and don't spend much money in clothes, i pimp up my simple outfits with beads jewellery :).... though your country must have every thing someone could dream of :), that how it seems for me.

Well, enough non-bead chit chat.  They will kick me off. 

:)) i would wonder, i think chit chat is welcome here, nobody told me off so far for sometimes beeing a chatterbox.

Greetings Aunty Akoya

(Cya for SeeYou i said just for the try to be extra cool and native speaking, well it didn't work out :oD, so you and beadiecat thought its my nickname)


May the beads be with you!

Hi Aunty Akoya,

Love the bracelet!

Not too keen on Facebook either.  Heard too many problems about it.  Getting set-up for Skype instead.

Nothing wrong with being a 'chatterbox'; I enjoy reading -- lifts my spirits.  Thank you.

I understood what Cya (see you) meant; similar to Later, but nicer.

Hi Stubblytroll -- you're doing fine.
