Last night, I finished a second bead embroidered collar, my Purple Mandala collar!
My second bead embroidered collar of 2012, and I'm very happy with it! I used those beautiful vintage glass cabochons from Beadin' Path, and I added some Swarovski bicones and freshwater pearls in the fringe. I don't know if I'm totally happy with the colors, but happy enough - I have three shirts that look perfect with this collar.
On that note, tomorrow I'm scheduled to fly to Tucson tomorrow afternoon, and I'm still feeling like crap. Muscle aches, weak, tired... I went back to the doctor yesterday because after four days on the antibiotics, I didn't really feel a heck of a lot better.
This afternoon, I'm going to see my acupuncturist to see if she's got any magic tricks she can use to help me get ready for this trip. I do not want to miss my first trip to the Tucson gem and mineral shows. I can't help but think that I have to have the worst timing of anyone, anywhere in the history of the universe with this stuff.
