We scored some tix to the Giants Atlanta Braves game yesterday and with 43,000+ of our closest friends, went out to watch the Giants lose in the bottom of the 10th. Oh well. We went to the adjacent restaurant to have a little dinner before driving home. I was in the very poorly maintained restroom, drying my hands, and I turned to the woman who had just walked in the door and told her there was no paper in the stall. She exclaimed and I looked up to see A, the professor with whom I have an appointment today, 100 miles away. Go figure.

I cheerfully started the bangle pattern in the latest Bead and Button magazine. The peyote base worked up fine with just one little mistake no one but me could ever find. http://www.beadandbutton.com/Magazine/Current%20Issue.aspx But the edging done in net stitches is wavy and not smooth as shown. I could swear the size 11 beads are too large, or 3 of them per stitch is too many. I have written the author, let's see if she responds. I have a lot of work in this to have it look as awful as it does right now. Huh.

Beginnings are so exciting. There's the rush from the retail therapy to gather the bits not in the stash. All perfect, no mistakes yet (been there and done that on the back side of the work already). Satisfying brainwork to puzzle through the construction. All good.
No peeking, cuz.
