Somedays life gets in the way of beading!

BeadedBeads_InProgressThe time bandits are stealing the hours I usually spend beading! It started a few days ago when the weather was gorgeous and approaching 80 degrees. My herb garden started calling to me and of course, I got in the car and drove to Murphy’s Gardens where I picked up Native False Indigo to put in our prairie and basil, thyme, sage, oregano and parsley for the herb garden as well as tomatoes to grow in containers. Well, wouldn’t you know that the weather has once again turned rainy and too cold to be outdoors! The plants spent the first night in the garage, but I’ve been scouring for temporary places to store them indoors where they will get enough light, but won’t be nibbled on by the cat. I fear for the basil because it is so tender and temperamental. Needless to say, I haven’t had enough time to bead anything more than these three mini-winged tube beads. I’m eager to get more of these finished so I can complete the project I have in mind. With company coming for dinner tonight, I will be spending the entire day in the kitchen. And as soon as the weather turns warmer and it’s safe to plant, I’ll be digging in the garden.  I wish I could clone myself!

  1. I love the little winged wonders. The weather is all topsy turvy…almost 100 today. If it keeps up like this we will be melted before summer even arrives.


    • Verda, it is so cool here today…55 degrees. I’m wearing fleece and my hands are freezing! It’s a good day to be cooking over a hot stove! BTW…your order went out today, so you’ll probably get it by Tuesday!


      • Thanks Barbara! I’m so excited! I think when I get home I need to look up how to make a tube in peyote. Not to sound like I’m going to copy you (I’m just curious) – is that a guide row on the tube that you used to create the wings?


      • I actually didn’t use MRAW or a guide row for the tube beads. I just started with a length of beads, working the peyote tube first, and adding the mini-wings after stitching the tube together.


  2. Thank you – Amazing! I think I’ll swatch it to see what you’ve just described.


  3. Wow! I see that you’re going to be keeping me busy 🙂
