Here's a quick update after an afternoon/evening of beading. I had a little mishap when I moved inside to stitch. I had everything moved inside and sat for a minute. Put the peanut container down on the table and knicked a package of beads...which I had stupidly left open. Blue beads everywhere! Now flashforward to having 98% of the beads all picked up.....moved the table to get a few underneath it, forgetting about the cup of coffee. Yup, you guessed it, spilt into the other four packages of open beads, on top of my head, and down my right shoulder. Now, how to clean the coffee off the beads, what to do, what to do? Jeff came up with a great idea! Put the beads into a coffee filter, tie wrap the ends and rinse under water. Yeah, it worked. I then used my hair dryer to dry the beads so I could continue stitching! Phew!
This is the wedding sampler my sister, Jan, is making for her son, Nick, and future dil, Megan. I offered, and she accepted, to finish stitching it for her, so this is a pic of where I "began". The inside will have all wording. I'm not sure if she wrote the wording herself or if it's from something else, guess I'll have to ask her!
First off, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Jeff and me - 27 years today!!!!!
Here's a pic of L&L Spriritdancer with ALL OF THE STITCHING (floss) DONE! I now have 2,373 beads to attach, ultra suede, backstitching, and webbing for the dreamcatcher to do! : )
And finally, I have lost 29.4 lbs! Yeah me!
I've taken the day off too. Not sure what I'm going to do (I do have a little housework that really needs to be done), but it's going to be a nice day - a good outside day since I spend 40 hours a week inside during the week. Oh yeah, I need to measure some pieces for framing. Jeff said he'd make them for me...boy, will he be busy!
