Errands and a finished project

Yesterday was errand day.  My first view as I leave my driveway is always this:

Then I noticed the temperature in the car.  El Paso heat is in full bloom:

Then off for moolah, some Jackson's if you please!  As an aside, I've always thought my Uncle Alfred looked like Andrew Jackson, same hair for sure:

Today, I watered, played catch with Daisy and finished my American Idol Victoriana piece.  This was inspired several weeks ago when Siobahn was still in the competition.  Didn't care for her voice, but the necklace she wore one night mesmerized me.  So here is my interpretation.  Enjoy.  I'm off to see what the neighbors are grilling...taking a plate of course, LOL!

Some detail, a very textured piece.

Peace and love to all.  Remembering all those, including my dad, brother and brother in law, who served and are serving our nation so unselfishly!  God Bless us all and come home soon everyone.

Wow, and we're hot with 85 degrees! The necklace is lovely and I'm sure you've got ideas for many more. Enjoy your weekend.

Thank you. I usually work more simply, usually because I'm impatient, LOL, but this was fun. As for the heat, it is here and gonna stay a while. :D

Hey Elizabeth! Cool necklace! Hot El Paso! I think I'll stay up here in the cooler northern mountains of northern New Mexico!

So you gonna make more of those beads and possibly sell them?!?!?!? You know us beaders--always looking for more to feed our addiction!

Elizabeth said...

Cathryn, you never know. If you mean the crazy color beads, I have plenty, just need to finish and post. The victoriana bead is a real possibility. I would love to see what someone else does with it.

Enjoy the cool!
