Big Mistake...

No Not the Thompson Seedless grape vine I planted.  That was on purpose.

The mistake was on the part of the Terrible Two.

They are forcing me to bead the handles on my pliers.
I got out the bead box that I had been working from.  There were two unfinished watch bands inside.  The top one is almost done.

The bottom one is not even close. It looks finished, but the watch has to be(somehow) attached to the band.  That step takes a while. 

The watch band is off of an old plastic watch that died a horrible death, years ago.
I liked the band, so I saved it.

Did I mention that I am going to finish those before I start on the handles of the pliers?

Oh... And I still have seven other watch faces that need bands.

How exactly is beading the jewelry tools supposed to make me want to do minis?

I did something this morning that is way more likely to do the job.

I went back to the very first blog entry and came forward.  I got as far as July of the year that I started writing... It's hard to believe that I have written every day for that long. I had forgotten some of the early tutorials that I did in the beginning.

If you ever decide to do that with any blog, You have to start at the bottom of the page and work your way up, one entry at a time.  Blogger has them arranged so that the oldest one is at the bottom of each page.

I think that this is the time of year that I usually get nostalgic about that... On February 23 I will have written 3,650 entries +. There were a few days that I did extra entries. That is 10 years worth!

The blog has kept me going all that time.  It's hard to be unhappy when you have so many friends following, reading and making comments.  Thank you all for hanging in here with me! Maybe I will try for another ten years, starting on the 24th of February.

See you tomorrow!

That is amazing (not the grapes, the blog posts !). I don't know how you have done it. I like being able to check in "with" you every day to see what you are up to. See you in person end of April/first part of May. : )
