Kathy brought lots of her things down for us to work on. She is a very talented crafter. She's making bracelets, and jewelry boards. I made a garnet,white and green beaded bracelet., Then Kathy bunched three together with a sweet piece of ribbon.
This is a jewelry board she's made . Use a scrap piece of lumber. Glue a pretty paper onto it. Then glue buttons, charms, fabric scraps, ribbons,whatever you like. You can also stamp them. Add a wire for hanging, then add cup hooks for hanging your jewelry on. So cute.
Here's The groupings Kathy did while here with me. I really liked the idea of three to a group...yet you could wear them separate, once you remove the ribbon.
While Kathy and Mark were here, we had a nice lunch. Ted grilled some pork for us. I had made some slaw. Kathy and I made green beans and wild rice too.
Later after dishes were done, we went to the cemetary. Kathy wanted to put some flowers on her father's grave. It was cold and windy there..making it even sadder to me.
Then we went to Horton's. Kathy had not been there for some time. We enjoyed the great flowers they sell. Got to see the Horton's, such a kind couple. Mr. Horton gave a free sample of fudge...since it was just a sample bite, we both took one. :):) Honest we did not buy any fudge. I'll show some Horton's photos tomorrow. xoxo
