A new baby


Chris found Wobbles yesterday and snuck away. He found it again today on the path. The camouflage is incredible. Mom is not too far away. Wobble stoodup and moved when the sun found him. No sunbather here!!!!

Size problem

This is the bracelet I made on my last trip. I thought I had measured it perfectly and it turn out too large. I really love it. I followed the video instructions at "Aunties Beads" for the African Helix stitch. My first online beading lesson. On our next trip i will make lariats in some of the standard stitches. Since the trip i have become obsessed with beads and colors. I have devoured Margie Deebes books on color and searched the web. I finally decided you have to sit with samples and audition.

Here I am celebrating my 35th Wedding Anniversary. Chris bought the gorgeous flowers for me. Such a sweetie.


here is Chris we were drinking a Navarro bubbly, very yummy

obsession

When we were in California I bought some cabochons that were just ordinary Mexican agate and they captured my muse. They appear to have organisms trapped inside. so I have spent hours trying to fix them reading Jamie Cloud Eakin over and over. Then I bought Margie Deeb's Color books. My problem is there are no good bead shops close buy to put her color advice into practise.
So I have to find a way hang them and move on.

On the trip i made a bracelet so i could learn a stitch called African helix because Auntie's Beads AuntiesBeads.com shows how to make on video.
