Good week of beading!

Good Friday morning to you! Can you believe January is nearly gone already? Well, I stayed up late again last night beading. I figure I can do 2 late nights a week without too many ill effects (except the husband lectures!), and last night I was making up a right angle weave kit I purchased awhile back from Glass Garden Beads. The colors are so gorgeous, coral and turquoises Czech glass beads (opaque) and yellow and bright orange opaque seed beads. So nice to work with the bright summery colors. Everyone I have talked to lately are so tired of winter! Thankfully, it is supposed to warm up this weekend. Anyway, I spent the evening making the Jitterbug Bracelet from the kit, and it was very simple. Don't think I have done that stitch before, and it looks great. I spent time at beads and botanicals yesterday. Had a wonderful visit with Carla, and made a beautiful pin with lovely spring colors of Swarovski crystals, and cream seed beads. Tuesday night when I was up late, I made a necklace, and 10 pair of earrings. Well, I have sold 4 pair of earrings and the necklace since Tuesday! Great goodness! Jewelry is just flying from my grasp! I took the rest of the earrings in to Graham Gallery and traded out some that were rather seasonal. So if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and check out our new earrings at the Gallery!

Thanks for the laughs Carla! Hope you are able to enjoy the sunshine on the deck with that "Tahitian Sunset" we discussed the other day! My fingers are itching to get to work with those beads!
