Well, should get outside and enjoy the wonderful warm day.

Next is a set of beads for a neighbour's Pandora bracelet. I am trading these for some pet sitting when we are on holidays - love it when trades work out!
Here's another trade. This person wanted a large holed bead to put on a spindle for hand spinning yarn, in autumn colours. Hope it works for her. I get some hand painted wool roving to make felt with, in return.

And this was the focal that I made in the same colours (shown between my in-need-of-a-manicure fingers). I used a frit stringer to get the shadings on the petals. Still not quite what I was looking for, but close.
Well, should go and get my parka ready for my last Millarville tomorrow. I am hoping for no rain, but either way it will be cold from all the forecasts. Hey, I shouldn't be so negative, none of you will want to come out for a visit tomorrow morning!

Here's a planter at our front door.
And here's a necklace I made. This is semi-precious stone chips wire crocheted. I wound some fibre through the strands.
Here's another wire crochet necklace. This one has 9 strands crocheted in gold, copper and dark copper. The strands pass through one of my big holed beads.
And this little guy fits into the autumn colour theme. This is Charlie, my daughter's new kitten. She got him and a little tortoiseshell kitten from the Meow Foundation rescue group. If you are looking for a feline friend, here is their website: http://www.meowfoundation.com/default.asp Well, should get back to the torch, and create some beads in those colours. If I am successful, I will post a picture of them. Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!
