On the road again...

I think I should buy a tour bus, don't you? Yes, we're headed for Phoenix again tomorrow. Coop had a call from Mayo Clinic and they moved his second knee surgery to Monday instead of Wednesday. I thought I had a lot of time to pack and clean house etc. but nooooooo. I've done what I can and said to heck with the rest of it. The dirt will still be here in the same exact place when we get back.

I've packed three big bags with beads and macrame stuff. There is no way I'll need all these but if I don't take them you know good and well I'll need them. I'm working on my Bead Journal Project. I'm totally a beginner at bead embroidery so I've done the frog stitch more times than I can count. I threw my first piece away when it was half done. So far the second version seems to be working.

Olympics and Beads

I'm still glued to the TV watching the Olympics. My favorite sport is figure skating so I'll have big time fun the next few days. As for beads.... I'm in a big bad bead block. I decided to work on my Bead Journal projects today thinking that would break the block. So far I'm just getting mad! I can't find a decent pair of scissors. I'm sure they are in one of the bags of beads I took to Arizona. I don't want to open every one of the bags. Heavy sigh.

Olympics and Twitter

4 days until the Winter Olympics! Wheeeeeeee! I can't wait for the games to start. I went to the ESPN web site where they have a Twitter feed. 4 days until the Olympics! I'm following Tannith Belbin, Ben Augusto, Evan Lysacek and Apollo Ono. I'm a big time skating fan. Poor Belbin and Augusto can't get a plane out of Philadelphia and may miss the opening ceremonies.

Anyone else a Winter Olympics fan?

I hereby declare that Sig Wynne-Evans is a genius! She told me how to get rid of the Chinese posts on my blog. I translated one of them on Google Translate and it was full of X rated things. I tried everything I could and nothing worked to delete them. Sig wrote me and said to look for a tiny trash can beneath the post. I tried it and it worked. Put this in your memory bank in case you find some offensive posts on your blog.
Thank you Genius Sig!

Bead Newsletter

I just uploaded a bead newsletter full of really good eye candy. If you don't get my newsletters you can read the new one here:

I finally uploaded several loom patterns and a few peyote ones. You can see them here: Yes, I was on a Southwest kick again! I guess I'll always be since Santa Fe has such an impact on me.
