Being bad again!

I don't participate in the stashbusters group, but I will say I didn't buy any fabric last week. That is unusual for me....not even a fat quarter! That is not to say however, that I did not buy other "stuff".

But before I get into that, look at today's mail. This one is from Jami. She talks about being born on July 4th and thinking as a child that the fireworks were for her! How cute is that!

And this one is from Judy, who was born in October; hers tells the story of how opals are formed. Both are great, thank you Jami and Judy, I love them!

And now to what I've been buying.....beads, and lots of them. All different kinds. So today instead of working I decided to sort and make my own bead mixes from the seeds, triangles,hexes,delicas, and bugles. These bags represent only a small portion of the total number. Here are the blues and greens.
And here are the purples and pinks.

And the reds....

And yellows and oranges....

and browns, golds, and blacks.

And finally the crystal and multicolors. Now this doesn't address the letter beads, daggers, flowers, fish, charms etc, etc, etc. We won't even go there.

I also stocked up this week on some neat new needle felting stuff, but I'll save that for another post.
And I'll leave you with a picture of Harry supervising my latest visit to joggles.

He obviously thinks I'm going to be there a while, so he's going to take a nap!

Have a great night!


  1. Oh yummy, yummy beads. I should go dig through mine, even if it is just to dig for a few minutes.

    Thanks for my card! I was so surprised to get it!

  2. You are SO bad! I haven't bought any beads since my trip to see you - but other than the Valentine's cards - I haven't made anything with them either.

    I feel the urge to make some more postcards. Maybe I'll do some after I finish assembling this log cabin top since I won't be starting any other projects before the move.

  3. it's a matter of perspective....i'd say you were very good at buying beads!

  4. a friend of mine was born on May 5 and always thought the Cinco de Mayo parade was for her!

  5. Your beads are so yummy!!! I need more!!


Thanks for visiting! I always enjoy your comments.
