Beach Walk and Beads

Looking out the window at the Beach this AM and was suddenly overwhelmed with the desire to "Be There", so off I went. It was 36 and no wind, made for such a great walk, and I only picked up one shell and one rock...a new record for me. No beach glass today, but I ran into a friend that says she has found a real treasure of glass. Hmmmm, and she walks the same area as I do, however she told me she walks every day. I need to get down there more. Came home and Mr J said he felt like eating today so we went for a burger and Ice tea. Came back home and finished the clasp on my cuff, darn, its just a little big for me, I made it to take to the Gallery, but I may have to "embed it with my "essence" for a day or two before I take it down. I used Turquoise of course and Carnelian and the coin. I love the more Ethnic look, and it will look good in the showcase with the Necklace I made just before we closed for painting. Now to finish my friends quilted jacket, and get busy on baby things for the two new babies that will be born in a couple of months. Two more Great-grandchildren expected. One Boy and one Girl, two different families. Can't wait!!

February's Bead Journal Maiden

Well, its been awhile since I have made an entry in the blog, I have been busy, we had to put the Gallery back together and of course to make matters worse, I was called for Jury Duty. I had two days to go to be excused and they nabbed me. So Rowan ended up doing a lot on her own. Our boss lady was ill at this time and the other gal that works part time was out of state...when it rains it pours.  I am also working on my watercolor piece for the Collaborative picture the Kachemak Bay Watercolor Society is working on for the Spring show. I have 10 days.....the pressure is on. I think I drew the most complicated piece of the picture...drats! I don't want to let them down....anyway, here's Miss February Bead Journal Maiden.
