I have to brag - I WON - there is a bead contest that I enter every chance I get, and this time, my beads took first place! These beads were a challenge - based on Lydia Murell's tutorial (which is a very thorough tutorial on her technique of making hydrangea flowers).
Winter continues, although the sidewalks are clear, and we can run outside. We just have to watch for broken glass - Aila somehow cut her paw during one of our runs. She hasn't been able to come with us for a couple of days till her paw heals up.
