Valentines and Halloween

Decided to do some Valentine Bracelets this morning. They are stretchy with no metal on them.
The one on the top is mine.

The center one is for my manager, she can't wear metal on jewelry so this is perfect for her. Shhh don't tell her.

the bottom one is for the other coworker. I hope she likes it.

They were fun and easy to make. I have had these beads for years. Trying to use up what beads I have so I can buy more and different kinds.

So when I was done playing with the beads, oh yeah, I forgot to tell you. As I was setting up the beading spot on the kitchen table, the container with all the green beads fell on the floor and broke. Beads every wheres of different sizes. Out came the vacuum, knee high pantyhose, and a rubber band. Put the knee high over the vacuum hose and held it in place with a rubber band and voila. All picked up and put back but in a different container. I did have 1 cat who "tried" to "help" me.

I noticed my neck was hurting bad this morning and spread to my shoulder. So when Scott got home, from work, he massaged it and then we put a heating pad on it. It is still a little sore but much better.

Pulled out my stitching for the SuperBowl. LK Halloween Rules. I stitched while they were playing and stopped for the commercials.
My favorite commercials:
Audi with the vampires
Pepsi with Elton John
Naked M&M
Chevy Acopolypse
VW car with dog losing weight
Doritos with the baby and grandmother
There was a few other cute ones

So I did get a little accomplished with Halloween Rules

Tomorrow is back to The 1892 Pledge.

I also read some more of The Target by Catherine Coulter.


Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate them.

I agree with all your commercial likes. The LK design looks great. I was to caught up in the game to stitch. Glad I am blogging again and you are still here. CJ in OK ;-)

I did the same thing, only beading instead of stitching during the game! LOL!

Love the bracelets and great progress on the stitched piece!

Hi Shelleen

I love your Bracelets...they are so very pretty.

I love your Pledge WIP...that is so neat. I love their patterns.

You are coming right along on your Halloween Rules too.

Pretty soon you will be done with both of these.

Happy Stitching
