Today, for the first time in what seems like forever (I haven’t beaded since November!), I was able to coax my fingers into cooperating long enough to make a pair of Marcia DeCoster’s “Simply Elegant” earrings. Photo to come after the Ben-Gay starts to work.

I almost forgot to mention that I found all of my missing bead quilt squares. (Hooray!!!)  My beady friend, Beth, has kindly offered to stitch them to the Peltex so I won’t miss the deadline to turn them in.  Happy, happy!
