"Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day, I've got a beautiful feeling, everything's going my way!" No, I'm not auditioning for Oklahoma! - but it's how I'm feeling this morning. It is already absolutely gorgeous outside, in the middle of March in Michigan - the temps will be almost 80 today! The sky is already clear blue, AND - the best part - I finally muddled my way successfully (I think) through Gwen Fisher's anniversary beaded bead from this month's issue of Beadwork. BAH!! This was a tough one; very challenging. And it's for SURE not exactly perfect (those thread paths are killer for lefties, Gwen!), but I think I have a very close facimile, and can't wait for the next issue to see what the next one will be. Is anyone else planning to complete all them and enter the contest? This is my Bead Table Wednesday submission - (along with the remnants of yesterday's beauty, that you'll see later - "The Perfect Vintage"):
In yesterday's blog I mentioned that I was having a little 'earring show' for a friend. Here's what the table set up looked like; very informal, didn't have to clear clutter or clean for her - but I like how it worked out, and she bought FIVE pair! Decided not to make her own - I had plenty to please her, but we just may plan a 'just bracelets' party for her, and a few other friends, in the near future.
Off I go to enjoy my day. We may have to drag out the patio chairs...cuz I'm definitely giving our deck some love today!
Peaceful, beautiful beading everyone,
