I might still be behind, but I finally got February's piece done! I am quite pleased with the end result. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I added matte as well as shiny half-moon beads from Artbeads to the circle around the Rivoli. I think you may be seeing these beads crop up in future pages. I really like them and there are so many colors. Who knew? I thought it needed something extra, so that is the extra! Now I am off to my local Bead store to find some seed beads in aquamarine, which as you probably know is the March Birthstone color. Its not one of the colors I have used a lot in other pieces. I love adding new colors to my bead stash. So exciting!
I had a wonderful weekend. As some of my followers know, my oldest daughter Jess likes to spoil me and cook me wonderful meals! This past weekend, she made a fantastic dish called Shrimp Orzo skillet. It was one of my favorite meals ever! We also had a large salad and lemon bars for dessert! Yummy! Isn't it so pretty? It tastes as good as it looks too. I love spending time with my kids and grand kids and having good food only makes it better. Love you Jess. Thanks for all you do for me and with me!
