beading class

Beading class was fine, I just wanted to be at home instead. I'm working on a multi-strand necklace in purples and blues with some silver and pearls thrown in just because. Not quite sure how it's going to look or how much I like it. The only way to know is try it out. Here's a very dark picture:

I've only managed to get 2 1/2 strands done, so it won't be exactly like this, but this kind of idea.

I think I've officially entered summer hibernation mode. It's just too darn hot out there. I want to be at home with my kitties. Speaking of which, Lily was a most excellent cat last night and slept with my sweetie. Everybody wins.

In answer to ForestJane's question, no, I don't hand-dye my own fabric. Those brightly colored fabrics in my bed quilt leftovers were Bali Fabrications, Kona "hand-dye", Free Spirit, Hoffman Bali, Moda Marbles and numerous others.

Ooh! Can't wait to see your beaded necklace, Tonya. Working with cool, watery colors sounds like the perfect thing to do when it's unbearable outdoors.

Hope your sweetie likes this one!

OK. It's really not unbearable outside today...but can I play hooky from work and bead a necklace too? ;-)
