Hi Everyone!
Well I hope all of you were able to watch the finale of The Walking Dead and the premier of The Game of Thrones. First AMC couldn't possibly get one more commercial in that hour. You could see where the show was cut and edited so one more advertiser could get their two cents in. Ruins the whole show.
The Game of Thrones needs two hours for the premiers. Looking forward to what's coming up.
So it feels like one of those "blue Mondays" It is stormy, dark, and rainy after a sunny weekend. I will try to brighten my day with some beading.
This is a piece that I made for my grandmother in 2006. This is a pattern that my long time friend Sharon Bateman designed. The Morning Rose. I made half of it added some dangles then sewed it to a piece of my Nicole's BeadBacking (NBB) Added a bit of embroidery then framed it.
My Nan kept it by her bed.

Have a nice Monday Everyone!

  5. Wow, Nicole, it is breathtaking! It is so lacey and delicate. A very special, thoughtful gift to your Nan.

  6. I love this piece you made your Gran. And I totally agree... It was 18 minutes of show and 40 minutes of commercials in the finale....
