Best Intentions

Monet Colored Cowl

Last week when I said "maybe we'll have a bead box update next week", I really thought we would. Honestly, I had the best intentions. I have a new color combo that I am absolutely in love with and excited to share. I have new bead styles that I know you will love once you can get your hands on them. I am feeling fresh and inspired. Unfortunately, it just ain't gonna happen.

I am not gonna whine and complain and give you a million excuses as to why I didn't get to it. I will say, for as slow and mindless as winter can be, time sure is flying. One minute I think "what am I going to fill my time with this week?" And suddenly, the week is gone and I can't figure out where it went.

Ah well, such is life. I couldn't leave you photo-less though. What good is a blog without photos? First, I heard from a friend that my pictures were looking very strange on her computer screen. Sorry. I am trying to get that "big photo" look that so many blogs have and I guess it isn't working. Today I am trying something else. Lemme know if it is lookin' freaky, okay?

Since finishing my sweater the other day, I had to start another project to keep my hands busy as we are glued to LOST on Wednesday nights and 24 on Monday nights and Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays. (Wow, I watch too much TV.) The pic up top is a quick seed stitch cowl. Yesterday, my cousin Audrey and my Godson Ben came for a visit. Audrey brought me this deliciously colored yarn. It is reminding me of a Monet painting as I stitching it up. That yarn ball was the size of my head when I started!! LOL. The yarn is chunky and so warm. The second picture is a mystery project that I can't talk about just in case the person it is for reads the blog. But I had to share because those stripes are killin' me... I LOVE THEM!! Hmmm... I wonder if some stripe beads are coming your way?
