Extraordinary beading goddess living in my own little corner of paradise.
Happily hitched to my best friend, mother of two grown offspring and one daughter by love. Granny to three wonderful boys.
Here you will find thoughts, musings and memories of a 60-year old Florida gal, completely addicted to beading. After several creative starts, I've finally found my design euphoria.
Glad to meet you! Come back soon, hear?

After a 21-hour marathon at the ER in Jax, I know for sure now I'm going to have to have surgery. Turns out my left ovary is 8cm so that's causing some concern. Now that I've found an excellent surgeon, it's a matter of filling out lots of forms and trying to find funding to get the deed done.
In the meantime, I'm under doctor's orders to "take it easy" and "limit activity." Yeah, right. Spent a lot of time in the recliner yesterday between brief bouts of light activity. Dunno if it's coz I watched three episodes of The Fashion Show on Bravo or what but last night I rooted through my patterns and leftover fabric and decided to put together a couple of sundresses . I haven't sewn anything in a couple years - probably not since we moved into the house.
With so much bead stuff everywhere, there's no place to set up my machine. I cleared off my light table and will put it there temporarily.
After the poor showing at Fun in the Sun, I've decided to take a wee bit of a break from the beading. It won't last. It never does. Sooner or later, I always return to my beloved beads. But for now, I'll channel my creativity elsewhere.
Since I am uncomfortable wearing pants now and bored with the same ole few jumpers I've been wearing, I thought perhaps a pair of new sundresses would cheer me up.
It's going to be a case of do a little, go get in the recliner -- do a little more, get in the recliner. haha
It'll be nice to have a couple new frocks....no matter how long it takes to put 'em together.
For the first one, I'm kind of having to jury-rig the facing for the top because I don't exactly have enough material but I'm determined to make it work. As for the bottom, I'll have to finagle that as well for the same reason.
Last night I ironed the fabric and pattern. This morning I cut it out. Once I check e-mail and stuff, I'm gonna climb back in the recliner for a bit. I sat down at the computer to get relief from too much standing, now I need to lie down to get relief from too much sitting! lol
