Coyote by my house.

Months ago I posted about a deer eating our tomatoes and a bear found not far from out house. This morning a pretty young woman knocked on my door. She apologized for coming into my yard uninvited. She had a darling dog with her that looked like a small collie. She asked if she could take a stick she found in the yard. She said a coyote had been following them. I looked up and saw the coyote running down the "donkey path" street by our house. I didn't know coyotes were so large. I also didn't know they could run so fast.

Thankfully Sam and Sassy were in the house. I shudder to think what would have happened if they had been in the yard.

Super-extravagent-wonderful turquoise and silver necklace

Remember  my super-extravagent-wonderful turquoise and silver necklace I mentioned in my last post? Have you wondered how it turned out? So do I!!! I tried this way and that way and the other way and just couldn't get the look I wanted. The components are sitting on a lap tray and occasionally I hear them smirking. They think they have defeated me and for the moment they have. Will I try again? Of course I will.

Dental work over!!!

At last I'm finished with my horrible dental work. The only good thing about the experience is that I lost 20 pounds. I really don't recommend it for weight loss but I'll take it if it comes!

I've been designing and uploading patterns to my bead-patterns-24-7 web site. Click the "newest" link on the upper right to see the new things.

Now to start my super-extravagent-wonderful turquoise and silver necklace. I've made it in my mind several ways so I don't which one to make for real.
