Copper and Turqoise

Not much to say today. We did a bit of Christmas shopping, a bit of Christmas decorating, a bit of beading, and a bit of knitting. It's been dark, grey, dreary, and cold all weekend. The high today was 28F. We still don't have snow. It's extremely unusual not to have snow on the ground by now. There is very little snow on the mountains too, so no skiing yet. The weather this year has been so strange.

Here is a netted ornament cover I finished a couple days ago. I used size 11 Japanese seed beads in black and silver lined turquoise, size 8 copper triangle beads, 6mm round black onyx, and size 8mm Cathedral beads in matte turquoise with copper. The cover is on a pale peach ornament with a sort of etched look to it.

Chenille came out to help me take the photo of the ornament cover.

This is the new garland that we put up along the beam that runs down the center of the house. Not a very good pic, is it?

Have a good evening.
