Oh my, is it really MONDAY??? Oh, I guess it is! Now what?? I am looking back over the weekend and realizing that I still have laundry, dishes, dusting (well, I don't usually do that one - ever!) and of course, there is more beading that JUST MUST be done!! Yep, it IS a Manic Monday for me!!
I used my HAM bones from Christmas to make some homemade Slip Pea Soup - and of course we had sweet corn bread (can't have it without sweet corn bread). It sat all day in the crockpot and made the house smell wonderful!!
I also had made a lemon cake, but....that is already gone....and I forgot to take a photo.
I did get a lot of beading done though. I started this project with these beads and you really need to see the clasp I used....perfect!!
and they ended up like this....
AND, if you want to see it made, step by step, check out this video!! http://youtu.be/7-Zjpl1XLR0
So, of course I had to start something else...well, I didn't really start it, I just put it out on the tray.....
This one should turn out nice!!
