We returned yesterday from the coast and are slowly unpacking and settling in. We just received a phone call today from Dave's transplant clinic with good news -- there is no more sign of rejection. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
We managed to catch up on finishing a lot of jewelry pieces in our spare time. They will be posted in our Wearable Art Gallery within the next few days.
I managed to make a few flower canes although I didn't get as many done as I had hoped. I was right in the middle of production when there was a clunking sound on my pasta machine. A bolt had come undone and we had no tools with us for repair. The four canes on the left and bottom are flower centers so I at least have a head start on more flowers to come.
So my poor machine got packed away for the last couple of days and that meant I had to do something to prevent boredom so I went shopping instead! I'm a real sucker for pearls and so couldn't resist buying these fresh water pearls and dyed shell beads in beautiful jewel tone colors.
