I’m sure I mentioned that we are traveling with our friends, Mike and Shannon. I love Auntie Shannon and Uncle Mike, and they think Torrey and I are just wonderful. They had a great dog that passed over the rainbow bridge a couple years ago, so we are kinda like family to them. Shannon and mom both have this, THING, for beads. Any kind of beads, but the old antique beads are their favorite. Shannon has also done a lot of beadwork in the past few years, making some very beautiful pieces. About 6 months ago she started having weird and failing eyesight in one eye. The doctors may or may not be ale to help. Ever since then, she hasn’t been able to bead because she couldn’t see the little beads. She has been pretty sad about it all. So on this trip, mom taught her how to make the Roxy Doggie necklace, because they are made with bigger beads. Auntie Shannon has been thrilled to be able to bead again.
In fact, if you go to my beadwork for dogs page, you will find three Roxy Doggie necklace’s that she did, and we have them for sale. Of course I had to help the afternoon they were beading.
She also made a couple bracelets for herself.
Meanwhile, mom was working an a couple of beaded leather cuff’s.
It’s been fun for everyone to have a beading partner, and to be able to create some new and great things.
And speaking of the Roxy Doggie necklace…..did you enter the giveaway? It ends on Friday ya’ know.
