That is not coffee in the cup but the way I manage the big spools of thread. I put them upside down in a mug with the thread protruding from the edge. This keeps the thread clean and the spool stable while pulling off the length.
It was a delight to see how how her tastes and ideas moved against and with my attempts. I liked how she used the bead caps as flowers! She did two of them but with so much going on, I forgot to photograph the second one. Sent some of my bead stash home with her so I can stop feeling guilty about not making jewelry and enjoy my animals.
Thanks for a marvelous time, B!
