I made these Gratitude Beads today. They're the longest I've made. From the end bead to the end of the turtle is about 26 inches. They wrap around my hand a couple of times. I used black waxed linen cord. I love that stuff. It's tough, knots nicely and goes through the beads without a needle.
It's been raining here most of the day. I'm so glad I took my walk early this morning before it started. I called Mike to ask him if he wanted a ride from the bus stop today since it was pouring. He first said no, but then he called me back and I gave him a ride to his friend's house. It's warm outside but the rain is ice cold!! Invigorating. :)
I've been reorganizing my art stuff a little bit today. I feel like my focus is narrowing, which is a great thing, so I'm trying to organize according to the things I'm doing most often. I pulled all my beads together into a basket, along with the tools I need. Of course, while I was doing this I just had to make the Gratitude Beads...you know, just to be sure it was working for me. :)
Have a great day everyone. Love you!
