I was a little hesitant about blogging today as I’m in a funky mood. My thumb is still not happy and I’m still not able to knit. I’m also not able to crochet which I really need to do as I still have gifts to make.
I really thought I could do it too. So I worked hard to switch gears to crochet mode, but after just one row I knew that it was a bust.
Hopefully a week of doubling my anti-inflammatory will beat that thumb back into submission. Fingers crossed, mmmkay?
The thing of it is, I’m having a hard time switching gears back to beading. I think I’ve lost the bead love.
First, let me reassure you the beading doesn’t hurt my thumb. I don’t move my thumb when I bead. Thus it doesn’t hurt my thumb.
Moving on. Or backward. Or whatever.
I met up with a bunch of friends at The Whole Bead Show on Saturday. I was a good girl too! I was under budget by the time we went to lunch.
Here’s the majority of the beads I bought. (The rest of what I got will have to be revealed at a later date for a special unveiling. I like to be all mysterious and stuff.)
I have plans for maybe half the beads there, but the icy blue beads? They were just too pretty to pass up. :)
As for losing the bead love? I think it’s because of this.
In my mind, the white is just all wrong. It makes the piece look anemic. I think I’m going to go to the other extreme and use black.
The problem is that flower is already sewn securely onto the “petal” piece. So I’m going to have to make another flower. That has me a little frustrated.
Also, what am I going to do with that? Maybe I’ll make a pin and do a give away. Maybe someone will like it.
Now I’m just rambling.
Here’s Sammy looking none too happy himself.
Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope your holiday celebrations were wonderful and that you’re all recovering nicely. :)
