So I haven't posted in a while and I thought I should add something here. I've been busy with other things than just beadwork and dolls. First, my friend Jeannette came to stay with me for a few days after the Puget Sound Bead Festival where she taught some classes. We've been friends for over 20 years and always have a great time together when we touch base. We took a day trip to Victoria and had a very lovely time. My kitties love her too! Then it was back to work for me as we were having our town wide yard sale and I had so many things to prepare for sale. Since we moved here to the Pacific Northwest, we are doing with much less than we needed when we lived in Nashville. Good thing too since I am so much into a more minimal living style now. Lots of things had to go. The sale was this past weekend and it went well. This week I am hauling off the remainder of items to Habitat for Humanity and hopefully they will find good homes. I feel good about that.
I received my mask back from the Beadin Path with a wonderful note from Debra. She told me that my mask was her favorite one which made me feel so good to hear that. It is always nice to be appreciated. I look forward to the next challenge which I think starts some time in November.
My artwork has been on the back burner but I feel the need to start something fabulous now. I will go slow though as we are also getting a new wood burning fireplace installed in place of our propane fireplace. Lots of construction and disruption in my living room! The cats stay hidden all day while the hammering and sawing are taking place.
