My Beading (studio), and sewing (room) stations.

This is what I did for the Day.
Besides a morning meeting and Making the meals at lunch and supper.
My Mr. lowered the quilt rack (we have had it 20+ years a) and gave it a new use.
I saw a type of this at a local craft store and created my own. Mine is much wider and holds all of my ribbon that is on rolls.

I will eventually use the wooden dowel from the quilt rack to hang the tree of life on.
For now it is just tacked up, It is really centered I am just taking the photo from the one side.
The wonderful new ( back chrome finished) light is awesome.
Look at all that light!

The thread beds were centered and now it is so cool

That is the large wooden LOOM that My Sweet Mr U. made me years ago, to the far right on the wall.
I look forward now to threading it and making something fun.
The art work is Dove's gift to me . She likes abstract.
That big pile to the far right is minding on the ironing board.
Don't toss out things just because they might need a little repair.
You can do it, just take the time to learn how.

The beading table has now been revamped to have a permanent tape measure on the working edge. I have labeled Lanyard increments and bracelets both in a separate color. Later I will add the necklace lengths. There is a vice on the left that holds the cording and then I use a clamp that weights the piece down so it wont slide off the table.

This is what I have been working on for two days. I laid them all out on Friday.
Today I got most of them strung.
Tomorrow I will do the finishing findings and tags.
I use my business cards on the clips with the price and media used.
The black one center is agate and quartz.
next to it on the right is Mother of pearl and fresh water pearls.
The Angle is fresh water pearl, and glass pearls.

Using the guied is a huge help!

See the clamp, it holds the cable.

My beloved made these stands for the gallary display.
I found a wonderful use for one of them!
I know what I have and when I need to restock.
Well It is 10:30 I'm gunna go cuddle my sweet heart. He asket me not to stay up to late.
He misses me (my presence in the room) beside him. :)

We also had family movie night we watch "Water Horse" we found it at Target for $13. Great movie!
You Ireland lovers must see it.
Beautiful senery.

Looks wonderful! How inspiring. We've been doing some organizing around here this weekend.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
