So I made a necklace for my sister yesterday morning. It was my first try on beading with Anne around. It wasn't bad. She had some of the same beads in front of her and she was stringing them on her own cord. There were some pretty specific design requirements since she wants her baby to be able to play with it while she's nursing, but I think I like it. It's longer than I like (due to the nursing), but I think I'd like a shorter one.
I also made myself a new necklace last night that I love, but I haven't taken pictures of it yet. So you'll have to wait. Sorry!
