A birthday and a beady finish!

Hello! We've had rain almost all weekend, but we need it! We still had a pretty good weekend. My grandson, Gabe, turned 3 last week and his birthday party was yesterday. We all had a good time and he made out like a bandit! Lots of toys, books, clothes, and a bike! Here are some pictures from the party.

Anna and Connor playing.

Jasper and "Big"

Gabe on his bike with his mom, Robyn. The 3 people seated on the left are great grandpa Mike, great grandma Sally, and great grandma Yona.

I finished a hummingbird amulet bag. The first picture is just the bag.

The next picture is with the fringe added

And the completed bag.

I used Delicas, fire polished beads, and pressed glass leaves. I used fireline for the bag and strap, and One G for the fringe. The pattern is from the book, Dancing Light by Suzanne Cooper. Love this book! I will probably start another soon. I absolutely LOVE doing amulet bags!

Off to stitch a while. I hope you all have a great week!

Eskie smiles,
