It's Cold Inside

Ever try to do the brick stitch while you're wearing mittens? It doesn't work very well, but neither does trying to do beadwork when your fingers are stiff with cold. My fingers turn blue even in the warmest of Oklahoma winters, so this year has been extra tough.

I figure I can't be the only person who has trouble when winter sets in, so I went to the Fire Mountain Gems Web site to see if there were some special gloves out there that are thin yet warm that I can use while beading. Sadly, I found none, but maybe someday ...

Happy New Year!

I haven't been doing much beading lately. I found this thing called Facebook that's been taking up far too much of my time. But now the novelty has worn off, and I've started to miss my looms and charts and colored pencils, so I think one of my New Year's resolution will be to spend a lot less time checking status updates and seeing who has recently posted photos and a lot more time with my beadwork.

Happy New Year!
