Sometimes life just sidetracks you

hpim0445ed2.jpghpim0438ed1.jpghpim0438ed1.jpgI am officially finished with Chrismas drapes and they are sold. I did get another order from another shop for at least 50, but for next Christmas. I’ll start in a few weeks on those because they will probably want more. I’m having trouble getting started on the turquoise drop necklace for me, so I decided to make some earrings for the holidays. Silver lined gold and silver lined clear seed and bugle beads, a little over 3 inches long. They have got the greatest movement to them. I made a black pair too. I don’t have any pictures yet because I’m making a necklace to go with them. I started playing/learning a stitch called St. Petersburg stitch and have sort of modified it to the way I want it. I probably have about another 4 hours work and it will be done-if it works for the beaded focal I want to use. Sometimes I have a hard time getting the beads and my hands to create what my muse is seeing at the time.

I usually have the halls all decked by now, but kind of have a bah-humbug thing going on . Our only offspring moved to London about 6 weeks ago and I’m having a hard time with the holly jolly part of Christmas this year. I’m not even going to move every stick of furniture in the living room to make room for the tree. I’m going to clear off a corner table and just put the top of the tree up-a Charlie Brown tree. First major empty nest holiday and I’m not dealing with it too well. I’ll be glad when the holidays are over.

    All I can say is WOW! These are so beautiful. I was here the other day looking at them. I didn’t realize that was you who commented at my site. I can see why they are a big seller. I’m going to add you to my blogroll for inspiration.
