I am in beaded flower mode now. So I probably won't be posting as often as I would like. I've gotta get these flowers done.

Here is the first successful Snapdragon.

I am happy with it. Most importantly, the bride is happy with it.

For each Snapdragon I must make 80 separate beaded pieces. Then assemble them all together. I need to go to Joann's and get more floral tape. Poor Frank. He looks like he's had a hard day.

(And yes, there is something on the lens. Well, there was. It isn't there now.)

My fingers are sore. I keep hoping I'll get calluses on the tips, but so far-just blisters. Fun fun. I decided to make good use of my many different little plyers that Sweet Hubby bought me a few years ago. It's helping.

I have been knitting. I've got 26 rows left on my lace shawl. Hurray! I am taking it everywhere I go and working on it every spare moment-between beaded flowers that is. I've got just over 350 sts on the needles. When I get to 400 I will be done.

It's a 3 day weekend. The weather is perfect. I can't remember the last time we had a sunny Memorial Day Weekend. I'm spending it on the deck with the beads. The rest of the family is gathering up at the cabin on Twin Lakes to paint said cabin. It's needed it for a long time. I am providing home made from scratch Strawberry Pie for the workers. Mmmm...strawberry pie. The plan for today is to work on the flowers for a few hours, then I'm heading up to the lake.

Have a good day!

  1. They look very nice!

    We're not having a sunny Memorial Day weekend. It's supposed to rain today (it looks like rain now, but we haven't gotten any yet) and tomorrow. I'm not sure about Monday though.
