New Projects in the Works

It's the day after Christmas and I'm still stuffed.  I had a wonderful time with my son and daughter-in-law and their family.  She's such a great cook, I sometimes hesitate to bring my simple country cooking, but everything was well received.

I placed my order to redeem my Art Beads gift card on the 21st of December and received the order on Christmas eve. What a wonderful Christmas gift!

I usually order Swarovski crystals and pearls from them, but this time I ordered mostly delicas. I have made this pattern for a 2 drop peyote cuff and am anxious to get started on it. I've changed the background to a cream color to show up the purples better.

I've decided to try making tea light covers and have made a couple of patterns. I have one started that I think will be wonderful for Valentine's Day. It's called "Anchored Hearts". I'm almost finished with it, then I can start on the Purple Iris cuff.

It's been cold and dry here, not any of the bad weather so much of the country is having, but I'm ready for spring! The bearded Iris were the first flowers that bloomed in my Mothers flower garden when I was growing up. This is in rememberer of her. Maybe it will keep the depression away. I still have problems with that even though she's been gone over 30 years.

I wish all of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
