Being Bad... Kind of...

What did I do? I simply fed the squirrels... Then I watched the squirrels stuff their little cheeks with lettuce and apples... OK.  That wasn't really bad... Just fun to watch.

 Then I was really bad.  I told Tessie that, if she wants curtains, she had better get to work.

I didn't tell her that I would be back after I finished fixing a stretching bracelet.

Walter came to me with his favorite bracelet yesterday and it looked like it was about to bust apart and lose beads.

We can't let that happen, so I went to work.

That was yesterday afternoon... Zar kept offering to help, but Tessie would have none of that.

I finished the repair work.  I took the whole bracelet apart and re strung it from scratch.  This time I used 6 pound test fishing line.  It is also sold as Fireline at bead shops for a lot more money... Same thing.

Anyway, it should hold up for at least a couple of years before I have to do it again.

But in the meantime, since I had the materials out, I started another one.  I love doing this pattern.  It goes together fast and pretty easy.

Now all I have to do is finish this one and I can take over for Tessie...

She seems to be having difficulties with using my small sewing scissors for some reason.

I guess that, since it is Sunday, I should let her rest... It's her choice.  I will be back at it on Monday at the latest.  I have a bracelet to finish.

See you tomorrow.

Hello Casey,
It really is a lovely bracelet. I'm glad you were able to fix it before it came undone and some of the lovely beads lost.
Big hug
