When you have an idea that you would like to try, don't you drop everything and do it? Nor do I. Our duties call louder and are more pressing. Except today, I listened. Most of the boys had been fed and sent off with friends to go snowboarding ( the mountains have snow, while it is raining here), the animals were all attended, and the boxes for Christmas decorations could be ignored for a bit. Surely.
I have a bag of glass beads. When I poke through it to find the right one for a project, I always see a big one with a face-like design painted on it. It wanted to be the head of a figure. I'm sure. It spoke to me, you know. There was also a smaller complementary bead with a beautiful design that needed to go with it.
So I pulled out a few more beads and started to put things together.
|The back of the face bead had a light blue starburst design, thus the lighter blue beads.|
|The back of the bead is worth seeing, too.|
Tree and Cross
Now back to the boxes and packing. I actually started yesterday.
Today the Christmas tree got its trim: the branches are removed and the trunk saved to be made into a cross for Good Friday, and adorned with flowers for Easter.
Maria said she may have a post for tomorrow of her current project. In the meantime, she sent this picture of her Christmas cactus bloom, "prettier than ever."
