Super Bowl Sunday, stash, snow

Hello! It's a sunny, bright, but cold day here.

Went to a local bead shop yesterday that is going out of business and everything was 75% off! This is what I got.

An issue of B&B I didn't have. I'd like to do the cover piece. Isn't it gorgeous?

From left - 16 tubes of delicas, a flower cabochon, 4 bags of 11/0 seeds, 3 bags of 15/0 seeds, 2 bags of gold filled beads, 2 packs of brass bead caps, 4 bags of pressed glass leaves, and a Christmas tree earring kit. I got all of this for about $30! I may have to go back this coming week. They are closing at the end of February.
We had a snow storm Friday and got about 3-5" of snow and boy, was it windy! Here's a couple

Today is sunny but cold - about 24F!

I also got some stitching stash in the mail last week.

Some charms in gold and silver - They say "Made for you" and "Made with Love".
2 skeins of silk moire for Rose Garden Mandala.

Some white New Castle linen from Elegant Stitch in CA and some white Edinburgh linen from Nordic Needle.

And from a very good friend, Betsy Evans, this chart pack design which is by her sister, Rae Iverson of Moss Creek Designs.
And I just finished this spiral rope necklace that I had been working on for a long time.

I used silver 11's for the core, white triangles and black 15's for the spirals, and a silver colored magnetic clasp.
Here is a picture of Beside Still Waters that I will be working on this week

This one is very detailed, but fun. I'm using beads and french knots for the flowers. It's being stitched on 14 aida with DMC and Mill Hill. I've been working on this one off and on for many years.
I'm going to make a pot of potato soup soon and watch the Super Bowl when it comes on later. I'm even wearing a Colts shirt! GO COLTS!!!

Allie is a camera hog :-)

That's all for now!


  1. OOHH- lots of stash!!!

    However, you call 5 or 6 inches a snow storm??? Come out here where we got almost 30 inches- now THAT'S a snow storm! ;)

  2. Wish I could go to that sale!!! Wonderful stashing, stitching and beading.

  3. It must be God that I find your blog today. On Beaddreamz i just typed a note that contained bits of the scripture on your header and I am smelling a big pot of potato soup this very minute. I would soo love to get the good deal on delicas that you found- too bad the store has to go out of business though. Blessings to you!
