Purls of Wisdom

Well, I am back! Bet you didn't even know I had gone anywhere, didja? I was lost in Christmas-ville. Orders and gifts and company and food. And wrapping and lights and carols and anxiously waiting for packages to arrive in the mail. I feel like it kinda swallowed me up this year. Do you ever feel like that around the holidays? Like you're just trying to make it throught to the end so you can breathe a little? This year did that to me. I think it was trying to run the shop and my life at the same time that did it. But I learned heaps and am so ready to take on the new year a little wiser. Oh, and I wanted to share my latest design. I've been dreaming of this necklace for a couple of months but have only had time for what I have to make instead of what I want to make. But now I'm able to work on all sorts of new things. This is my take on the ever classic and elegant string of pearls. But mine is called "String of Purls", of course. Love, love, love the yarn! Soooo soft and silky, Silk Bamboo from Patons. Tonight I'll be working on a new color, Sapphire!
