Another finish, an update, and a thrifty find

I just finished this necklace, minus the clasp, by Jill Wiseman, called Fireworks.  Bronze and gold seed beads and multi-colored 4mm, 6 mm and 8 mm pearls.  So much fun!

This is where I am on Twisted Band Sampler by Northern Expressions.
Found this frame at the local Goodwill for only $10.  It is about 30 inches square.
Sorry for the lousy pictures, did not want to wait!

See ya!

Beady finishes

Here are a few beady finishes I have done since May.  These are all Jill Wiseman designs.  First is River of Pearls, using white pearl seed beads and 4 mm fire polished beads in several colors
 Next is Butterfly kisses using permanent finish gold seed beads and 4 mm crystal AB Swarovskis.

 And next is the Daydreamer rope using gold and silver super duos and white seed beads.  The clasp has white opal crystals.
Last is Dew Drop Spiral using silver, gold, and rose gold seed beads

Can you tell I love her designs? ��

Not one, not two....

Not three, but FOUR finishes recently!  Two crocheted projects and 2 stitching projects.

The top is A New Day by My Big Toe Designs and the bottom is Summer Lace by Whispered by the Wind.
 This is a prayer shawl for my best friend who is very ill. The yarn is by Caron and is called Peacock.  Not the best picture, sorry.  I can't find the picture of my other crochet finish, but it is an afghan in dark blue for my aunt.

Back in a few days with more, I hope!

Late to the party

The Grow Your Blog party I signed up for, that is.  I should have posted last night, but started feeling bad and that continued to today.  But I will introduce myself anyway, just in case someone is still out there.

I am Terri and I live with and care for my mom.  Between us we have 4 (3 outside) cats and 3 dogs.  I love to cross stitch crochet, and bead.  I have 2 sons, 4 grandsons, and 2 granddaughters.

If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to leave a comment or email.  My email is in my profile.
