I know, I know, I go from one extreme to the other. I'm gone for weeks then I'm here two nights in a row. But, I made so much progress on this bag since yesterday I wanted to show you before I got to much farther. The flowers on the bag are pretty easy, just glass leaves and a bunch of different colored glass teardrops stitched randomly around the front of the bag. The fringing is taking a lot longer. Instead of just a straight up and down fringe, I am using branch fringing to stay with the flower garden theme. So that means I have to string through a few times, counting and branching off into little shoots along the way. I know I won't finish tonight but I am going to get as far as I can. Then just fancy up the top of the bag and make a neckchain. I decided because this is going to be a heavy bag, heavy just with beads then add the Iphone, rather than a clasp at the back of the neck I am going to make it so the chain is completely seperate and hooks to the bag on each side. Might even make a second small one so she can carry it as a wristlet intead of around her neck. Hmmmm...


  1. The wristlet is a great idea! I'm glad you are back and doing okay.

  2. Thank you ladies. Yes I am trying my best to get life back to normal. It is the only way to save my sanity and I think it is important to save me at this point. My beading is the best way I know to do that ;o)
    Have a great day.
