My laptop seems to have an issue with Google and therefore, Blogger, so I have been shut out from my blog and all your blogs -- so sad! I wish I was smarter so I could figure out what is going on with it.
I've been busy beading away on my Bead Journal Project, Twigs (my beaded giraffe beanie baby), and some fun new earrings. I am meeting weekly with a group of fabulous women who have all come together in the funniest of circumstances. We are all bead addicts and most of them were weavers/stringers and had a desire to learn bead embroidery, so I am showing them what I know and loving the friendships that are forming fast.
I recently joined a Bead Guild, so I am really looking forward to see what that brings. The very first meeting I just happened to sit next to the beautiful Leslie and Brenda who have been wanting to learn how to make a cuff bracelet for years. How's that for fate? I just happened to know how to do it! So our informal bead embroidery group has now expanded by 2!
I emailed myself some pictures so I could pull them up at work (on my lunch hour of course!) and post them. For whatever reason, it takes forever to upload, so here are just a few of a cuff I recently made for my friend Darcy. Her only request was purple and silver.
After I finished that, I went to work on my next BJP flower. Guess what birthstone is February? Amethyst. Needless to day - I'm a bit purpled out.
Hope to get some time to figure out my laptop issue so I can have the chance to catch up with everyone!
Please keep all those affected by the recent beyond-horrible storms in your prayers. I can't even imagine how they are coping.
