How's that for a catchy subject line?  LOL!  I have a couple items to post, first is a finish.

A shawl, done in dk weight yarn that is a mix of wool and rayon, I think.  The border is a DK weight yarn mix of silk and wool.  The variegated colors are in shades of green, blue, and purple, and the border is purple.  I didn;'t have enough of the main yarn to make it any bigger, so I added the border.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.  I haven't blocked it yet.

Progress on Twisted Band Sampler

I haven't worked on this one in a while.  Anxious to get back to it so I can do this one next!

Twisted Rainbow by Northern Expressions Needlework with the Dinky Dyes silks.  Yum!  Love the colors!

This is Her Sampler, a freebie, but I can't remember where from.  I haven't worked on it much lately, either.
This is Festival of Lights by Jill Wiseman.  White luster superduos, gold seed beads, and crystal copper Swarovski bicones.  I didn't do it right so it's going to get taken apart and redone.  But it was a fun project!  The tutorial is free on Youtube.

Went to a stitch in this past Saturday and stopped at a bead store.  The beads have already been put up and I didn't get a picture.  I bought several colors of superduos, some O beads, and a couple tubes of small cube beads by Miyuki. Fun!  I hadn't been in a bead store in ages!

That's it for now.  See ya!~~

Great projects to share. I LOVE the floss colors. I haven't beaded jewelry in a good long time. Sadly there are no bead shops in my area any longer. Guess I'll have to take a trip to Indy to get my fever going again ~lol~
