Wow ! Thanks everyone I feel like I have been through an initiation.

I'm glad to see you aren't all dead as I have been fretting about getting every last bit out of the house !

Good to know there are lots of other pitfalls awaiting me too, bring em on !

Second stage in Ninja bead making - for batch annealers only:

Push the bead so hard into the vermiculite that the bead release breaks and the hot bead shoots up the mandrel and burns your fingers.
Yep - for all those who think they're the only ones that this has happened to....you're not alone!

We ought to have sew on badges made!

Great idea a bit like Brownies.

The Bead Release Up the Walls Badge
The Burnt Fingers Badge
The Borax Stain on the Padded Chair Seat Badge


I'm sure the list is endless !!

Ohh, now Sal that's an idea.

What would you have a picture of for boobie burns or glass in the foot?

What colour would the shirt be?  Green, brown and blue are already taken

(most spectacularly, on Wednesday, I managed to get glass stuck in my big toe 4 hours after putting my boot on and leaving this house.  Thank god I have tweezers in my draws at work. Clear, impressively one of the men in the office did ask what colour it was.)

I think Q had a very interesting bead release story some where...

We could ask , but surely it is more perilous than anything he has undertaken before ??

All this getting water from animal dung is all very well but it's not lamp work is it?

 Wink

So what would our pledge be,  Seeing as we are not going to be swearing allegence to the queen...

Norse god of fire? (not entirely sure who that is)

How about swearing allegiance to the Crazy World of Arthur Brown?

I think a ceremonial burning metal helmet might have to be worn by the Chief Bead Maker (shuffles off to take her medicine....)

It's a bit difficult to get chocolate out of chain mail...

I wonder if that's why the brownie uniforms brown?  (I went to the Woodcraft Folk instead)
