Friday Night and Saturday!

I had no idea I would love making fabric beads this much. I bought one acrylic box and then realized I would need another.

I have been spending Friday nights with my hubby, our best four legged friend, the TV and my little hand sewing projects.

Since this is a long weekend I decided to make Saturday and all day "do what you want" craft day. The fabric bead making class I am in has truly inspired me. All week I think about things I want to try and having a whole day to experiment was a real holiday for me. I have been making these felt beads and couldn't be happier. This is the last week of the online class and I am trying to make at least one of every bead Alma taught online. Not so easy! There are so many fantastic ideas and samples that my head is spinning!

Luckily, I bought one more acrylic box to hold the next group of samples!

Sundays are always my day for jewelery links. I hope you enjoy them and your day!
