Back to the Beads!

Here's my baby Twigs looking all bling-ed out and almost finished

But then, sigh, so much more to do......

And here is Jenna's braceled edged. 
I love it - it's pretty big; over 2 inches wide.

Joan (Jenna's mom) asked me to make a cuff for her to go with this dress:

I've started it, but no pics yet.....

And finally, my lucky win from Mzuribeads arrived today.  It's a bracelet kit and I absolutely love the colors!  It was a giveaway posted on Craft Gossip, which is a pretty nifty site - it's got every kind of creative medium covered.

Ok now that we filled our bead need,  I wanted you to laugh along with me as you watch the train chug past my new place:

It went by again this morning, which is only the second time I've seen it.  This time it was a passenger train, so I got to stand out there and wave to everyone.  They probably were thinking "oh my God, who would ever want to live so close to the tracks??"   Oh if they only knew the circumstances that brought me to living here!   Even I can't believe it !  Oh well, it is what it is.

Bead Happy and Often!

Twigs gets more beautiful each time you show him! It is an amazing project!

I love the bracelet--mine has taken a new direction but I don't want to spoil it before I get to post it on my blog!

The train is rather funny. We live 8-10 miles from the train tracks, but when it is quiet, especially at night, we can hear the train & the whistle.

oh my gosh Twigs looks so wonderful! We are getting ready for a garage sale and I was going through all my beanies looking for ones I can bead on. So it was so fun to run into your blog today and see what you did with twigs :) I've got a bunch picked out that I could try beading on so i'm excited to give it a try. Yours is very inspiring!
