But first, I wanted to share with you the framed piece that Malea made for me earlier this year. She went with me to Hobby Lobby on July 23rd to pick out the mat and frame and we bought beads, which I added to every hole on the piece. After she died, I took it back to Hobby Lobby and had them use the frame and mats we picked out together, plus I added a cut out with her name and her birthday and date of death. I haven't found the perfect place for this yet, but I want it somewhere I can see it all the time. That probably means moving some things around in the family room.
I also did a bunch of finishing done this week. It seems like I get on a roll on something and keep going until I'm done! This ornament was finished with ribbon that was ruched all the way around. Really fun to make!

This ornament was beaded all the way around with red glass seed beads. I've decided I really enjoy doing bead work. Maybe I can branch out and do some jewelry!
