Nancy is doing another giveaway, two sets of floss this time.  Go here to enter.

I will try to make a post here from my phone in the next couple days.  Didn't realize it had been so long since I had posted!  I still don't have internet at home and don't know when I'll be moving.  Hopefully, not too long!

Comment moderation

I have turned on comment moderation as I got hit with a LOT of comments in Arabic this morning. 

Still no internet at home, so it will be hit and miss as to me posting for a bit.  I have some stash from Market to share and a couple small finishes.  Will try to use my phone this evening or later this week.

Beady weekend

I have been beading almost all weekend and having the best time!  

 The above are little beaded cubes from Potomac Beads.  So much fun!  I used 4 mm glass bicones.

 The above strung necklace used 4 mm round fire polish.

The above is another Butterfly Kisses by Jill Wiseman.  I sold the last one I made!

I won a giveaway from a bead blog and received this bead board last Friday.  I love it!

I am using my new phone to post this and I don't think I like posting from my phone.

Spoke too soon

Mom had a minor stroke last Thursday evening and is in the hospital.  But, she is due to go back to the nursing home today.  She is much better than she was on Thursday, thank goodness!

Unfortunately, I can't go visit her because of a bad cold :-(  Haven't had one in years, and this one is kicking my butt!  Going to the doctor this afternoon. 

I don't have internet at home for the time being, so it might be awhile before I can post again with pictures.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New  Year!

Wow, I haven't posted since September!  It has been crazy busy around here, but starting to calm down some.  My oldest grandson is in a marching band and most Saturdays were spent watching them.  They got first in the state in their class!  Woo hoo!

I've been doing stitching, crocheting, and beading.  Making some items for Christmas  presents.  I got a new laptop, so should be able to post more often as it's easier again.

Here is some beading I've done recently.  Two pairs of earrings finished, a bracelet (no picture), and started a necklace.   The necklace pattern is from Potomac Beads and it is SO sparkly!

The earrings on the left are diamond duos and seeds.  The ones on the right are superduos and seeds.  Both fun and easy to make!  The right side pair are a free pattern from Deb Roberti at Around the Beading Table.

Mom is doing as well as can be expected.  She's happy and in no pain and I'm glad she is still with us!  Luckily, I was able to get her in a facility that is less than 2 miles from home.  They are taking very good care of her.

My granddaughters are doing very well also.  Cat finished her treatment in May and her hair is growing back.  Emmy had surgery in May and it was found to be non cancerous!  She has healed very well and both girls are keeping their big brother and parents busy!

I will try to get back soon with some stitching updates.   If I don't, I hope you all have a great Christmas and a very safe and happy New Year!
