I am taking time out of my day today to make a necklace. Here's what I have to work with. The three shells on the right are hand-picked by my grandniece in Arkansas (though I believe she picked them up off a beach in Florida when they lived there). She is two years old, and gave the shells to her grandmother, my sister-in-law, who would like to have them made into a necklace.
I really need to clean off my table and vacuum and put in the laundry and make the bed (good grief, I didn't even do that) and go grocery shopping.
But instead I'm sitting staring at these beads and shells and pearls and wire and wondering how it is all going to go together to make something for their visit to Arkansas the day after Easter.
So I'd better stop typing and get stringing!
Oh, and now I'm hungry. I haven't had lunch yet. First bead something, then eat.
I will keep you posted. Hopefully with a picture of a completed necklace tomorrow. So far the pile of ingredients is not too appetizing...but we'll see!
