A Thing I made.

The book is with the proofreader at the moment. I have a week's rest, then I will get it back from her, and send the last changes to the typesetter. So I have had time to make a few Things. Here is a thing I made last night. I decided to use my second length of stress-related black cotton yarn I-cord & make a long necklace which I can loop around my neck. But as I mostly wear black clothes, it kind of disappeared against the black. So I sewed some beads (made from seeds) on.

















It actually looks pretty cool when I wear it. Well, I think so.

YAY! You are still creative! Not bashed in by words and grammar! YAY! I am still out of town and am missing you - just had to pop in to see what's up...had a dream about your neighbor last night , I not only dozed, I bulldozed...

I thought you were the proofreader. Now someone is proofing your proofing? Guess that is a good idea. I always have someone go over my text since I can miss big gaffs when it is so close to my nose. Fun necklace.

Wonder where in the world that package is?

Glad you've had some time to be creative, before putting your nose back to the grindstone!!
