Poinsettia Update


"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart. "



As promised...

2 full skeins (800 m/875 yds.) sea silk ( and I do mean full. I figure it is going to take all of it to get a scarf that blocks out to 60 inches.)

I am going to finish up three more repeats over the weekend and block it out to make sure.

Better safe than sorry...




4500 size 8/0 seed beads.

30 cloisonne beads for end

I'm too tired to go over it all again. Cutie Pie (otherwise known as grandson Conner - age: 3 mo) got Grandma up twice in the middle of the night. Doesn;t he know I'm too old for this nonsense?

Off on another repeat...

That's why young folks have babies and not us old ones!

Pointsettia is truly beautiful. What a lot of work went into her.
