Birthstone bracelet...and other Wednesday stuff...

There are two sets of larger beads that represent our four grandchildren and their birth months:
June, April (girls), October (boy) and another June, but a different color for the wee boy. It was fun putting it together. Come back tomorrow and see my shopping finds from yesterday!

Thanks for the scarf compliments. Ivana asked what they are made of...well, plain yarn, fancy yarn, narrow ribbon, fun fur, eyelash yarn, cording...whatever strikes my fancy that will bend and blend and knot well. They are about 6' long and can be worn simply hanging down the front, or either looped or pinned over the shoulder. I use many different colors that coordinate and contrast so that they can be worn with a variety of colored shirts. And I'm learning techniques that make it easier to do all this in a moho, where storage and working space is limited! And no, Sandee, I don't want to go into business doing this. That would take the fun out of it. But I do take special orders for friends and family:-) And I accept all offers of leftover yarns and narrow ribbons!

So Bob and Lynne have left...I need to go to the post office and run a few errands today, since I will be 'carless' tomorrow. It is sunny but windy today, but a freeze is expected tonight. I know you folks up nawth are used to that, but this if FLORIDA and there are crops down here that us and the rest of the country needs! We don't need frozen...again!

Stay warm, y'all!

The jewelery is pretty, but I just don't wear anything but my gold wedding band. Just stopped wearing jewelery. Now the scarf is quite another story.

You sure have had some cold weather in Florida this winter. Must be that global warming thing.

Have a terrific day and stay warm. Hugs. :)

that is one beautiful bracelet... Yep, selling my handmade items make it a business...and I'd like to keep it just fun.

You and Bee need to get-together for a Beading Bee...LOL!

That bracelet is lovely and made even more so by the meaning in the stones.

Amanda has a ton of yarn that she no longer uses so send me your address via a Facebook message and I will happily get some of it shipped off to you!

How pretty! It has been below freezing here and I am quite sick of it already! But at least we aren't having a blizzard like the entire northeast, including my sisters. Ack! I'll stop complaining right about now!

Big hugs xo
