the green project: a beading journal VI

1/9/09 I finally find the right place for those Russian Serpentine cubes. I was beginning to think they were a no go.

1/10/09 I spilled my beads four--- count them--- 1,2,3,4 times today! I don't really want to know how much time I've wasted picking up these blasted seed beads over the course of this project . . .

1/11/09 I was gone all day. Part of that time was at friends though, and yes, I took my beads.

1/12/09 Finally found a spot for Heather's (humblebeads) squirrel. I was beginning to think it was a no go. And sistermine is a squirrelly girlie.

1/13/09 I took the citrine and topaz that I've had forever and put them in a wirework frame. Bil brought them back from Brazil for sistermine. This was pre-engagement-- they were dating or 'just friends' I've forgotten. They asked me to do something with them-- and they're celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary next month. Hey, no one said I was quick . . . .

1/14/09 Is there some law that says that the last three inches must take twice as long as they should to complete? The muddymuse button goes on and does it look great?! And also the little Horus that we got on our trip down the Nile-- I've had that for years!

1/15/09 It's done! She loves it and appreciates it as very, very few people could-- she'll also pull it off fabulously (as very, very few people could). She won't let me shoot it on her though. She's been very sick and isn't looking so great, still.

It's 18 inches long and 5 inches wide at it's widest point. Now for a Tropical Vacation . . .
















PS-- I got everything on the list done with the exception of the newsletter . . . I don't think I can manage it tonight. Love me anyway, ok?

  4. So glad you didn't waste time on a shower :D I love it...it makes me think of shed snake skin which has an awesome beauty (though no color, so this is way better!) I'd love to see a shot of it on the wrist though, just to see how it lays.

    Re 1/14/09: The law actually is a two-part law, and reads: 1) a project will take as long as you say it will or longer, even if you grossly overestimate to give yourself plenty of time; thus, if you are on track to finishing early, all sorts of things will start to go wrong, and 2) this means that the last steps of any project will take as as much time as all of the steps before them, if not longer.is a two-part law, and reads: 1) a project will take as long as you say it will or longer, even if you grossly overestimate to give yourself plenty of time; thus, if you are on track to finishing early, all sorts of things will start to go wrong, and 2) this means that the last steps of any project will take as as much time as all of the steps before them, if not longer.
