Just stuff

A beady finish
Butterfly Kisses by Jill Wiseman, permanent finish silver 11/0s, crystal AB bicones

A new bead book.  Gathering supplies for the cover piece and 1 other out of this book.  Can't get the picture to rotate!

A friend gave me all of this that her husband found in a house he was cleaning up.  The 7 balls to the left are a wool/poly blend and the others are all 16/2 cotton.  Each ball of the wool is about 675 yards and each ball of the cotton is 765 yards.

I thought I had more pictures, but cannot find them right now.

Sorry I haven't posted much lately.  Mom had shingles, I  had sciatica, trying to paint the house, mom and I both have been battling allergies lately, plus all the normal house work and the J.O.B.  I  do read all of your blogs, just haven't taken the time to comment much.  I'll try to do better.  Hope you all are well!

So lucky for you to receive your friend's find! Life likes to throw us lots of curves. Glad you found time to bead though. I fear the shingles. I had the pox for the first time when I was 36...a mother's day gift from my daughter, lol. I thought about the vaccine until I found out it cost $350+ subject to my $3000 deductible! I have sciatic issues too. Got some great exercises for it from my Doc...you can find them on the net too if you haven't already.

Have a great day...
xx, Carol
