It's Scarf Time!

We had a glorious sunny day here yesterday but there was still a noticeable nip in the air. I realized I need to get out my winter woolies soon. I love going for a daily walk but keeping my neck warm is crucial - I hate being cold!

On that note, here's a lovely, varied selection of winter scarves found browsing on Etsy.

Sometimes I buy beads and immediately know what I'd like to make with them but then they sit in my office for months while I'm kept busy with other projects. In March I bought these lovely turquoise beads. They are little cubes and I knew as soon as I saw them that I wanted to weave them into a cuff bracelet.

Well the other day I decided to plonk myself down in front of the TV and watch a Harry Potter movie (I love them). Not being able to sit still for too long, I immediately began rifling through my beads to find something to make and my eyes settled on these turquoise beads.

So a couple of hours later, I finally had my bracelet made - it only took me about seven months to get my act together!

I hope you like the final product... here it is.
