I started this bracelet while in Michigan watching Fox news and getting hurricane updates. It is very hard for me not to be symmetrical with my beading. I like both sides to look the same. I just went for it and this is the end results. The focal point is a humblebead made by daughter Heather. She sent me this bead along with some others for my birthday. Set your VCR, Heather will be on HGTV "Crafters Coast to Coast" October 28th. Check your local listing for times. My thistle is almost finished and I couldn't wait until I had the leaves done to scan it. I used a felted bead for the center and a felted stem. The pattern for the thistle is from Diane Fitzgerald's The Beaded Garden. The bead in the picture is felted with bead netting on it. Today was a computer day. After four years of running smoothly my computer developed a hiccup. A while back Art and I went to Best Buy and got a Firelite Scan Disk. It is a portable 40 gig hard drive. You can plug it into any UBS port and access the files. We use it as back up for our computer files. Thank goodness I had all my files backed up before I handed the computer over to be reformatted. Mission was accomplished and my computer is back up and running. Now if they could just fix the internet so it would work all the time instead of part of the time. We would be in business.
