Here is yesterday's attempt to "use up" those loops that came with the hooks. Truly not a stunning piece but. . . I still have enough for more experiments. I see this as one of those challenge projects as in the magazines.
Opened two bags of green glass chips and stayed with the spiral chain idea for one more day. A big box from Fire Mountain arrived yesterday and I am teasing myself by not opening it and trying to use up beads I already have before I dip into the new things. This year, when the news was full of "financial crisis" fears I had the vision of me using up all the beads I currently had on hand and not ordering anything new until I had sewed the last two beads together.
