Chrome

I got treasures in the mail yesterday. I was "oh my gosh" for a while and my husband asked me what it was, and I said "chrome". Because a biker understands that chrome is a highly valued possession. My chrome is beads and yarns and oh what pretties!!! They were an unexpected surprise from an online friend.
THANKS JOY! I just happened to have a piece ready to be embellished... and the colors worked perfect. I was able to use the fuzzy yarn around the picture, the sead beads in the top corner, and the glass flower beads (the pink one is a Czech glass bead) in the ribbon array. I'm going to have some fun with these treasures!
Oh happy day!

From Joy: So happy you found a use
for some of the stuff. Of course, Cat, you could find a use for gravel and make it look GREAT! You are oh so talented and just full of wonderful ideas.....

What gorgeous treasures Cat. I've been out of circulation lately, but I am just droping in to say hi and hope the moving is settling down, and the boxes left are at a minimum.

Beads are my chrome, too:)

Well, then there's my Buick. It's the only car in my parking lot with a chrome bumper...

And to answer your question, I don't have any pets. My condo building doesn't allow them:( Rudy, the Irish Jack Russell, belongs to a friend of mine. That particular piece will be published in Dec.'06 Bead & Button Magazine:)

Thanks for your interest!!
