We're off.....

to Winterfest in Aberdeen SD in just a little while. The show is Saturday and Sunday at the community center off of 3rd St. So come and visit us.

I will be taking this little bracelet that I finished up the other day as well as other new pieces and beads.

I have had an idea in my head for the past couple of weeks, ever since the new issue of Beadwork came out with Kate McKinnon's new bracelet pattern. I wanted to make glass sequins for that bracelet and for a neck piece design I have. So the other day I sat down to make some. They are just really tiny disk beads and my friend Jodie has been making little disks for a while now.

Any way they were fun to make and I have a bunch of ideas on there use now and have to make a bunch more colors.

Special Orders

I have been working this week to get all my special orders from my last show finished up. So far lots of bright colors. Seems that is what I did not have near enough of.

this scarf has been fun this past week it is so soft and fluffy. There are two different yarns in it. Now I want to get it done so I can work on the hat. Thing is I do not have the needles for the hat so will have to get in an order some where. Living in the boonies has it's problems.

Now I am off to go play with the cat for a while he is upset I will not let him back into the house.

I did help...

with the last of this mess. This is what that tree we had taken down turned into. Jeff had done most of the work while I was at my show last weekend but I helped Monday split the last of it and get it stacked up so the neighbor could have his splitter back. There is still a pile of odds and ends in the yard but it looks much neater and picked up. Had a nice toasty basement today while I was working on one of the many special orders I have from that last show.

It has been forever.

I know I have been away too long. There has been lots of stuff going on but most of it pretty boring stuff. Hubby and I did have our 25th wedding anniversary this last week and I got these pretty flowers. Then toward the end of the week we took a couple of days and went to Sioux Falls to go to all the little galleries and shops that we never have time for when we are on our way through there and doing our chore type shopping. The last couple of days it has been sunny out and pretty warm so yard chores and such have been getting done. And as always I am still trying to find the kitchen table under the pile it has on it.
