I have a SIL that loves butterflies and green tones, so this is probably hers.
I haven't decided if I'm keeping this one or giving it away. The more I look at it, the more I like it.
The last necklace I made was for a friend who loves grey and yellow, especially together. There are grey bugle and seed bead between the larger glass beads, and frosted glass yellow beads in there as well.
There were also a couple of bracelets made, using a new-to-me technique I found in a beading magazine. These started as just bags of jump rings and beads. I had fun with two sets of pliers, and the rings and beads! I love, love, love the copper one with the blue beads. It's hard to see, but the blue beads actually have a copper edge to them - so nice! These may or may not go out as gifts - I'm having a tough time letting them go.
Of course, since I've been home, I haven't even looked at the jewellery stuff! I want to make more of this stuff - I just need to find the time.
And the good news - bad news in the computer arena - remember our home computer pooched itself when we got back from our vacation? Well, the hard drive is fine, meaning all our files are intact (pictures, and patterns and music, oh my!).
But the motherboard is fried. Great, let's spend MORE money...
