2009 Agate Cabochon Bracelet

I am back. Sorry that I haven't blogged for a
couple of months but I was very busy at work
and now I am a little settled down. I have
been outdoors biking and kayaking.
I made my own new design of the bracelet
that I finished last night. I beaded an Agate
cabochon with peyote stitch and used netting
stitch for the bracelet base. I loved the cab
design that was center for ripples of seagreen,
bronze and dark grey. I was very happy with
the colors that I picked out.

Moss Horse

I love the horse with mosses. I wish I had one
for my garden. It was taken at The Flower

Shy Chipmunk

Dean saw the shy chipmunk first so I tried to get a
close up at The Flower Factory. The chipmunk's pose
was brief.

Water Lily Photo

I took pictures of a water lily at The Flower
Factory.They are located 1 1/2 miles from
Oregon. Last summer we went there on the
way to Rotary Garden in Janesville.

New Pin

I haven't blogged for a couple of months.
My work was very slow and I have been
working out alot.
Now I am busy at work again. I just finished
my water lily pin tonite. Dean took pictures

I am working on a new coral reef neckpiece.
It is not done. I have been making some new
bracelets, too.

November 2008 Bead Journal Project

I finished my November BJP flower pin before
New Year's day. It is a Lotus. The pin size is
3 1/2 " wide by 3 " height.

Six days after New Year my November page was


lotus : a fruit held in Greek legend to a cause
dreamy content and forgetfulness
: a water lily used in ancient Egyptian and
Hindu art and religious symbolism.

I took pictures of Lotus at Stricker Pond last
August. I had to wade in to the water to take
close-up pictures.
I bought a new 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens last

Black-Eyed Susan

identification of the flower for my October
Bead Journal Project piece. It is a Black-
Eyed Susan. I took pictures at the Rotary
Garden in Janesville last July and thank
you for the nice comments about my Oct.
flower page.
