Thing 119

I’m working on a Hollyburn skirt for Martina. It’s slow going, not because the pattern is difficult or complicated (it’s not). It’s slow going because I’m on an Agatha Christie kick, currently on my fourth in three days. They’re all ones I haven’t read in so long that I don’t remember the end, which is rather important to the suspense. I’m reading a chapter, sewing a seam or two, reading another chapter, adding pockets… Which means I still don’t have a skirt to blog about.

Fortunately I haven’t yet blogged about last week’s beading project. Buffer, baby! Buffer in the form of another bracelet.

The big black beads are serpentine, separated by small Swarovski pearls. I found a big nautical-style spring ring clasp in my stash to finish it off.

It’s big but surprisingly comfortable to wear. The stones are cool against the skin and not too heavy. I still won’t keep it for myself, though. Into the sale pile it goes.
