Good evening everyone ~ Hope you had a good start to the week.

I’m about ready to go get horizontal to real for awhile before sleep.  I vacuumed and dusted early then headed out to mow, then I became ‘Bead Lady’ once again.

Yesterday afternoon I did a little weeding in the main garden after a nap, but while it felt not so bad when first out there, I quickly realized it was still hot and humid so decided to quit. Hopefully tomorrow I can get out there early to do some more work.

I finished up two more sachets, they are so addicting.  I can hardly wait to have a blank heart canvas in my hands, study the beads, then pick threads and go from there.  They all just take on their own character.  DH said each of them has their own musical tone, I thought that was really neat and a nice compliment.

Here are the latest two. One has ‘old’ beautiful rhinestones and really sparkles. I keep them all the sachets in zip lock bags to preserve the lavender scent and keep them clean.


Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as to dealing with the ‘psychic vampire’. She was truly quiet and calm the next day.

As to one commenters post, yes, there are lessons to be learned in dealing with these people.

I’m glad you all enjoy our roses, they are certainly a joy to me.

That’s it for now. Enjoy the rest of your week.



There is only one thing

more painful than learning from experience,

and that is not learning from experience.

I love the sachets. I grow lavender and that would be a good way to preserve that wonderful scent.

Your needle and beadwork is just amazing to me.

As you now know, I love beading
and needlework of all kinds,
sketching and anything else I
can learn in my spare time.
Your work is just beautiful and
you should be selling these
little sachets.
Hugs & Blessings~
