Sundays Are For Repair Work

I have a repair project set aside for later today.
I have never repaired a piece of jewelery made by someone else, so this should be a challenge.

Our puppy Magnus is so excited to see new people that he is still jumping up. Soon that will stop, but in the mean time, he's gotten his paws entangled in a few necklaces. This necklace belonged to my friend Melanie. It was the first time she had worn it. We felt so bad we replaced it, so now I have this one to repair or redo.

He's been staring at my Cricket machine a lot. That's something I could not repair, so learning "DOWN" is very important. Enjoy your Sunday friends!

I am so amazed that you get so much done with an active pet around. My cat is old, and I tell you scrapping/cardmaking is a challenge, but beading is almost impossible.
