What a beautiful Day!

Well, after about a week or more of gloomy, cloudy, rainy weather, we are finally getting some nice warm sunny days!

I just love the way this picture of my lilacs in my backyard turned out.
Last weekend it was cold and it was also the Victoria Day weekend but, my daughter went with her friends to walk around Port Dalhousie Zoey got some great shots of geese, ducks and the lighthouse.

The Lighthouse, that water looks so cold!

Looking down an embankment, wouldn't want to fall in that cold water!

I finished the bead crochet lariat and am quite happy with it! It is approximately 54" long and was made with size 11's & large dagger beads on the ends.

It's nice and weighty too!

Here are a couple pendants I made with those beautiful Swarovski Rivoli's. The pictures don't do the sparkle justice.

I'm going to be making my daughter a pair of earrings and maybe a necklace using the Rivoli's in black diamond. Kirsten, will be graduating high school this year, and I'm making her jewellery for her. I can't believe she is going to be 18 this fall...where does the time go??!!

Well, time to go and watch some mindless tv while I bead. I'm working on my piece to enter the Bead-Patterns contest.

Night all & have a beadiful weekend!
