List #29: Worked on this Week



I finished the mermaid. I am going to send it to my mother at the beginning of the week with a gift certificate for framing.

This is my second pearl knotting class and this one was a little easier because of the space between beads, but the three threads kept knotting up, so a little harder too. It matches the skirt I wore on Wednesday. I like to make jewelry to match what I am wearing. That way, you know you have something that goes with the thing you made. Because it's simply too much for me to try to remember what's in my wardrobe!



The messenger bag will be completed on Monday, so I'll wait until then to show it off. Right now it's just a few pieces sewn together.

I have two days left to finish some projects. Maybe I'll try to do that this evening.

Mermaid is very cute. Who's design is that?

And though I don't really have the time, I do have a wonderful beading store within 8 miles of me and you're very inspiring. (Okay. They're wonderful, but they need to carry more seed beads please!) Maybe I'll go look at their current classes.

Coral, the better word for the mermaid and for you is zaftig. It's definitely sexier.

I love the mermaid and how clever of you not to have to worry about the framing! I like you're latest beaded necklace and once again you're smart to make things that go with what you're wearing.

The mermaid is wonderful (of course, I am partial to mermaids). Love the necklace too - you are turning out some lovely things in your class!
