I got my little beaded squares done for the Breast Cancer Awareness quilt that is auctioned off every year at the bead and button show. This is a fantastic project started by Jeanette Shanigan. You can read more about it at the Bead and Button Website It's a really good cause and the money raised goes to the Medical College of Wisconsin here in Milwaukee. And as some of you know, I work at MCW in the pathology research department. It's a really awesome cause. The Etsy-beadweavers, decided to try to get enough squares together to make a full quilt, so lots pitched in and helped. You can read a little bit more that here.
I was so excited, I couldn't wait to show them off. I got them completely done, after a bunch of headaches. You would think a couple little beaded squares would go by quickly, but I ran into so many problems. So I was not only happy to see the outcome, I was happy to be done.
So I got the camera out and went to take a couple of pictures and the screen was blank. Nothing! I reviewed some of the other pictures on the card and the screen worked fine, but it would not take any pictures. Well it would take a picture, they just all turned out black. So now I don't know what's wrong with our only remaining camera (some of you may also know that I broke our 6 month old SLR camera back in July, and it's sitting in a drawer waiting to be fixed). Boy I just have the best of luck with cameras. So I promise that as soon as I get a working camera again, I'll have pictures of my little squares up.
But just so I don't leave you without any eye candy. Here's a picture of one of my favorite necklaces. I used one of my favorite glasses, Cosmic Storm, to make the focal bead, and some really great silver lined Czech seed beads.
