Three Things at Once...

And not one of them is Tessie's!

I quit working on any of her stuff yesterday after she quit talking to me...

I went back to my beadwork.  I am working on three watches at once... One at a time, but rotating.

The top one is almost done.  I started that one last week.  The middle one, I started yesterday.  

The bottom one is very strange.  I have had it for a number of years.  I have never seen a watch with only one side bar for holding the strap on... It really doesn't make a lot of sense.  I finally thought of a way to use it.  I am making a strap that will wrap over something and will put a snap or some other kind of closure on it so that I can fasten it. 
Wednesday morning I made myself a new case for carrying projects with me.  I had this big old hard sided wallet.  I don't know why I bought it in the first place. It took up way too much room in my bag and I never liked it...

Now I do... I took the card carrier out of it and lined it with some of my favorite beading blanket.

 This stuff is one of those blankets that was popular a few years ago... Nice and fuzzy.  The beads don't move once they are in there.  No jumping out onto the rug... Well, not as often as they jump off of other beading mats.

Anyway, now I can grab and go!
As for Tessie, she is not speaking to me and has been laying with her face to the wall all day.

I am not going to disturb her.  It would just start an argument about what I am working on and why...

I am going back to finish at least one watch now...

Tessie can just take a LONG nap...

Back to the beads. 

See you tomorrow.

I wonder if the third clock is one of those that would hang from a pin? Like a nurse's watch?

¡Vaya enfado que tiene Tessie! Están quedando muy bonitas las correas de los relojes.

my grandmother had a watch like the third one and she wore it like a pin.
