The one on the right is one of my favorites. It was made with two pieces of a flower cane that I made a couple weeks ago. The one on the left is made with black and white flower cane ends and strips of silver clay.
Some of the girls at our beading club have been making their own neck cords on a disk using the Japanese art of Kumihimo Braiding. Rose, Judy, Evelyn and I decided we wanted to try it. Some of the girls bought their disks at the Tucson Bead show and paid $80 for them. We found a place in Texas that sells a kit. The kit comes with the disk, 8 plastic bobbins and some satin thread all for $22. We got our kits Wednesday and I just finished one braid and I think Judy has done two and Rose is doing one and we still have to show Evelyn how to do it. It's really fun and not hard.
BREAST CANCER GOLF OUTING
I told you this has been a busy week. Today I golfed in a breast cancer golf outing. I bought raffle tickets and won a $20 gift certificate to The Corner Bakery (just what I need). They had a silent auction and had some beautiful items that people donated. They had a basket full of Mary Kay products and I bid on it and won. It has enough things in it for me to use as gifts for Christmas for at least 3 people.
The weather was gorgeous, we had hot dogs before we teed off and the Texas Road House gave out ribs on one of the holes. Hard to hit a ball with a rib in one hand and a club in the other.
MY WISH IS THAT THEY FIND A CURE FOR BREAST CANCER OR A PILL THAT A WOMAN CAN TAKE SO SHE DOESN'T GET BREAST CANCER.
If you get a chance, find a way to help the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We could be saving your best friend, your sister or your daughter by just giving towards research to help find a cure for this terrible disease. Don't forget to get your mammogram.
Some time in the very near future I will posting a pink ribbon bracelet as a give away. Watch this blog.
