Silver in Periwinkle

Okay, I had to take a break from the snapdragons. Just a short break. Here is what I made.

Yes, another Octahedral Cluster. This time in periwinkle blue and sterling silver.

So, what is that background my beady bead is sitting upon?

The fir cone shawl. I'm down to 12 rows before I can start the edging. That is, if I decide to do the edging. I can't make up my mind. It's taking almost an hour to do one row now.

And lest you think I've abandoned the snapdragons oh ye of little faith.

I made all of the pinky parts for s-dragon 3 yesterday. I had an extremely productive day-out on the deck. It was a wonderful 81 degrees F with a nice cool breeze coming from the south-right past my blooming lilac bush so I got to drink in it's lovely scent the whole time I was working. The hummingbirds were entertaining too as they fought over who got to drink of the red elixer first. Silly birds.

Today my sis-in-law Diane is coming over and we're gonna s-dragon together. We were supposed to get together Tuesday but, well, Murphy's law and all.

Have a wonderful day.



  1. Love your beaded beads! Where did you get that pattern?
    And I love the shawl, too! I wish I knew how to knit!


  2. Hi Terri,
    I got the kit from Mathartfun.com. It's also available from BeadInfinitum.com Be warned, it's horribly horribly overpriced. I wrote about it here:
