Another One Done

The scanner is not hooked up yet, so this is a quick, not color-corrected snapshot image, but I wanted to post something actually finished after all this time!

I'm slowly getting settled into the new little house and I have a set-up in a separate room with LOTS of light so I can work again. I still have to excavate for beads and supplies down in the basement, and right now I have a slightly limited palette, but it feels so good to be sitting down with needle, beads and fabric. It's cold outside, but I keep warm with cats and hot chocolate as I bead and smile.

The move-in was nightmarish, but we expected that, and now that it is well over and we have kitchen (mostly), bedroom and our office/studios unpacked or in process, things are better. The cats all like the new place, too. We have just finished work on boxing in the back porch and turning it into a small sunroom room especially for the cats. In warmer weather, I hope to do some beading out there, too.

I will post a better pic of this once I get the scanner online.

and congrats on the new sunroom...our cats love ours and even though it's cold here now, there are still several hours in the afternoon when it gets up to 75-80 out there (and it's uninsulated)...!

That's a great piece.

Plus your house looks lovely and you're in for many beading classes. Hey, 2008 looks good for you ! :o)

Well, my fellow behinder, you have a very good reason for behinding, and, on top of that, you bead *masterpieces*. It's beautiful! Lovely work. (And we'll get there.)
