Aching For Lime Green

Please notice the double entendre in the title! HAH! I was doing my usual surf this morning and it suddenly occurred to me that I wanted something lime green. I've had two patterns sitting, waiting to be executed, both using lime green with some other nifty accents. I've got some pattern samples finished except for the clasps. I suppose it's time to start stitching.

I've set things up in the living room in anticipation of recuperation time. Wire and chain work over there, seed beads next to the couch. There are a few things that I'll still need out of the bead room. As I start organizing a little more I'll add them to the work stations. I'm just trying to make sure everything is at the ready when the time comes. I also plan to have at least one project that can travel to the hospital with me.

I find myself wanting to learn some new things -- metal etching, wire work, chain maille. Why? I can't stop learning. I'm just wired that way I guess.

Did anyone win any of the giveaways this week? My goodness, it was awesome to see so many at one time. Dontcha just love it? Keep searching. If you find one that I haven't seen, let me know so I can post it.

13 days and counting!

I've really been into that orangey color lately. Haven't paired it with lime green yet- but I did do a turquoise color...
I always want to learn something new... if I had unlimited funds I think that I would learn everything I possibly could!

I've been liking oranges too -- totally unusual for me. But I've got a hankerin' for limes here lately.

Mmmm -- unlimited funds for beading!

I could show you how to do copper etching once you've recuperated. Good luck!
