More hand work for the time being...
I had to stop working on my butterfly because I didn't have any size 15 seed beads. The two butterflies are too small to use 11's...good excuse to head to bead shop. On Wed., inbetween geocaching, the kids and I did pick up some orange 15 beads. They like helping me pick out colors.
More on our geocaching experience in another post!
Here's what I'm hand stitching. These are 1 inch hexagons from, of course!, Laura Kemshall. Laura showed a really cool pillow wrap made with hexagons. Not sure that's what I'll use these for but they are fun to make and portable...which means I can lay them on my board and pick up quickly when puppy wants to play!
Today is hair appointment for Kalee and grocery shopping for mom (me!). Also, Bob and I both got new cars yesterday so that's behind us now and we don't have to worry about coming back early in April to turn in my car. GM has some great deals right now on 2012 models and we're both delighted with our new purchases and the reduced payment each month! Temp only to be in the low 70's which is my kind of weather so I best be out in it! And drive my new car!
