Did you know?

Did you know that Right Angle Weave actually has a "nap"? I was almost finished with my RAW business card case, when I realized that the way that the beads were laying in my piece were not correct. I had completed a couple of rows in sections, instead of going all the way across the row, and they really stood out - in a bad way.

So, I am on row 30 of my case. Again. But doing it in rows, it's laying correctly.

Lesson learned: RAW has a nap, just like corduroy.

p.s. If you find the case pictured above - it's mine, I lost it.

Chloe and Her Red Sweater

Chloe loves to be outside. Now that the weather is getting colder, when she comes in she's shaking and shivering. Many years ago, we were given a great fleece jacket for our other dog Casie - who hates to wear it almost as much as she hates to go outside. Molly - our chunky monkey dog can't wear it, she's to big (Molly is arguing that the fleece shrank in the wash and it's not her fault). Chloe doesn't seem to mind it.

Here's Chloe, playing with Big Ben, our neighbor's dog (for those of you that know me, this isn't the mean psycho dog), and generally looking good while patroling for those squirrels.....

And to keep this bead related - yes, I started working on November BJP, finished a piece while up north for a swap, and still working on a RAW business card case since I lost my first one.

Back to coffee and beads.

October Bead Journal

October! The skies are clear and the leaves are changing colour.
Brr, it's getting cold out, but that doesn't bother our owl.
He's hanging out and looking for his dinner.
With the leaves dropping, it's easier to spot
supper running under the trees.
