Black, White and Inbetween is Finished....

At last I have finished my first improvisational beaded piece. This type of beading is such fun and a constant challenge -- keeps you on your toes, and you never get bored.


This Robin has her nest right outside our front door. It is so close that I can't believe she chose to build it there. When the door is open it is only inches from her nest.

A Little More Done on the B&W

I was able to get a little more done -- have some tweeking to do in a few places, but it is getting there ;-)

Was able to get a little more beading on my Black & White (and in between) piece. Have a way to go, but hope to finish is up before June 1st and the start of the Beaded Journal Project.

For All You Puppy Lovers....

On May 21st we will be bringing home a darling Black Labrador Retriever puppy. She has been named Pollyanna (Polly for short) and is such a sweetie. She has her own blog already - Pollyanna's Pages. And here is a link to a short video of her taken on May 1, 2007 when she was 32 days old.
