And here is a close-up so that you can see the beads a little better (ok not that much better - the flash just wasn't cooperating this evening). The beads are a great irradescent and each bead is just a little different. They are all in the copper family, but some have a purple cast to them, others have a pinkish cast to them and even others have a blueish cast to them. Of course they were among the more expensive ones I saw at the bead shop ($8, so not that bad, but the others were $3).My supervisor while I was pinning out my progress was none other than the biggest man in my house - Tigger.
Finally, today was my sweet Daddy's 67th birthday. God was very wise when he gave my dad an extra portion of patience. He has always been the voice of reason in our family. The rest of us are just a bit.........well melodramatic at times. My father has always been a rock in my life. He is a great example of what I want to be.......hardworking, loving, loyal and full of integrity.HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!!!
