A Cuff for Darcy

Darcy's Cuff

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. 
SO frustrating.

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.
