What I've been up to

Spent most of the weekend in preparation for the craft fair next weekend.
Here are a few of the pieces I made--click on pix for close-up view
first: Crazy lace agate and citrine combine with hundreds of tiny glass delica beads in this interesting piece.

next: I love the fire and dazzle of celestial crystal beads. This tri-strand is a real stunner.

I dug out some old beading books and found this pattern. Now that I've made one, I'm hooked and want to do LOTS more!

and finally:
I call this piece "She Dances" because Josh Groban's song by that name kept waltzing through my head as I made it. I started it yesterday and finished it this afternoon. I'm also hooked on the bangle-type bracelet. I see many more of those in my future!

So there you have it.
The steroids appear to be having a mild effect on the pain. It has diminished back to the old familiar pressure under the left rib now but at least the bi-lateral anguish appears to be waning.
Now I'm going to go climb into my recliner and relax the rest of the evening.
