How Does Your Garden Grow?

I've been stitching more flowers and leaves, and the current piece is just about complete. Then I'll move to a little vineyard and make some grape clusters and leaves, and then everything gets sent away for approval or rejection. I feel like I'm holding my breath until the end of the month, when I can put them in a box and watch them fly away. Then I can get on with other things, like web site updates and adding items to the Etsy store, and a few other tricks I've been hiding up my sleeve.

It's another gorgeous Central Texas day, following another damp and dreary Central Texas day. Last night the fog was so thick we couldn't see from the back door to the pool, and the coyotes sounded like they were IN the pool. Fog makes sound carry so oddly sometimes. At one point in the wee hours of the morning, they sounded like they were in the front yard. The reality is that they were probably a quarter of a mile away. The abrupt weather changes have caused T-man and Ariel each to come down with a cold, which yours truly is fighting tooth and nail. I do not have time to be ill.

Don't forget, the San Antonio Bead Market is February 28th through March 1st, and I will be there helping Carol Wille with her booth. I happen to have it on good authority that there will be a new shipment of acrylic flowers and leaves on Carol's tables, along with some seed bead mixes, glass beads, fibers, Vintaj brass, and did I mention beads?? Come see us!

Will these flowers be covered in fog slonber?

Bead-Mused said...

I'm not sure! I may need a definition of "fog slonber".

Oh yes, count me in.

I neeeeeeed moooooore beeeeeadsssss.

That and I am in serious need of inspiration and Carole Willie's beautiful vintage beads and some Vintaj brass filigree may just do the trick.

*looks for a bank to rob to fund her beady eyed affliction*

I've got a piece that I finally finished that I'm wearing made with the Vintaj and some of the hand-painted silk ribbons she has, plus some of Heather's beads and some of Pam's beads. NO -- hands to yourself, chica.

:b !!! meanie!

Are you going to show us this bit of Fabulosity before/after the show? 'Cause you can't just tease us with a description and not show it off, that's cruel.

It needs about 10 more little beads added in. I've been trying to take a picture of it since December, but what with the computer woes it got put off. If I don't get a picture up next week, I'll wear it to the market.
