WHY I LOVE MY USED BOOKSTORE: Yesterday morning a fellow beader brought some of her beading books in to Bird Song to sell. I couldn't believe how many there were, what great condition they were in, and how she could bring herself to sell them. Still, I'm glad she brought them to us.
Here's the link to the bookstore blog, wherein I have posted The Haul.
THE FIRST FREEFORM PEYOTE BRACELET I EVER MADE:
I have a box of personal pieces that need some repair - I made this piece almost 15 years ago with absolutely no idea what I was doing. The thread has broken in several places, some of the beads have broken - I've beaten it up pretty good. I was all set to do some repair when I realized the thread - some bargain bin sewing thread - had rotted almost all through it. I decided to take it apart completely and rebuild it. I had to take a picture, though, to remember it - and it will be interesting to contrast what it becomes with what it once was.
PROGRESS ON THE BRACELET BOX LID: As of this morning, here's where I'm at:
REMEMBER: Keep watching this space! Post #300 is just around the corner!
