A quiet week here and Orca Bay Part 3.

It was kinda a quiet week here!

Last Monday I meet with my beading group and had a great day playing with my beads. I started a new kit from June Huber from Juniper Creek Designs. I love her designs, her directions are great, very easy to follow. I have taken a number of her classes at the Bead and Button show. This is her Peyote Starflower pendant.

I'm also making some of her Peyote Stars for gifts for Christmas. I'm using my own beads for these. My stash of beads is almost as large as my fabric stash.

For my quilt guild I in charge of making a special quilt for a friend. I finally decided on a design and got to work. I got all the parts cut out and the center of the top is almost together. Then I'll work on the borders. Can't show a picture right now. That will have to wait until it's presented to her. But I'm really happy with the way it's turning out.

Finally Friday came and with it came the next installment of the Orca Bay Mystery from Bonnie Hunter. I finished Part 3 on Sunday morning. Here are all the parts so far. I think they play nicely together. And just so the playing doesn't get out of hand, they stay in their own play pen when I'm not around.
I realized, I hadn't posted what my fabrics were going to be. I'm going with pink in place of Bonnie's red, then blue, black and white.

Friday was also a day of pure Bliss! My BFF, Lauretta, who is a massage therapist gave me a gift certificate for a massage for my birthday last Sept.. I made an appointment and turned it in on Friday for wonderful massage. It helped take care of the ropes that were between my shoulders. Now I feels so much better.

This coming week look a little busy, but I'll let you know how it goes.



  1. I'm doing pink too! Can't wait to play with that color - it looks so sad in my little bin not being cut up yet.

    You have some fun fabrics.

    Love your "playpen". I have one too but I think mine is too small, I need to move em on up.

  2. They seem to be behaving themselves and playing well together. In fact they are behaving beautifully. The beaded pendants are amazing.

  3. Beautiful beading and congrats on have all 3 steps done!
