Sigh... Now that I can bead

I'm soooo darned slow!  

I've always been a very fast beader, churning out a herringbone chain or a
small amulet bag in an evening.  If it was simple stringing project, I could
make three or four pieces in an evening, no sweat.

But not right now.  I have a couple of necklaces designed in my head, and I'm
trying to get them done.  This evening, working steadily the whole time, I
got about 1/3 of a strung necklace done.  Arrgh.

Yep, patience is not one of my long suits.  But it sure felt good getting to
make something after all this time.

I guess it'll take me a little while to get back into the groove.  However,
I'll never understand those folks that can work on the same project for
_years!_  I would lose my flippin' mind.  (Even more than usual)

BTW:  What would be my prison sentence if I did bad things to the little dog?
 She's driving me crazy --um, crazier.  We have the doors shut because the
a/c is on, and Sophie hates closed doors.  Whatever side of the door she's
on, she whines and scratches to be on the opposite side.  All flipping day
long.  As I write this, she's banging her head against the office door,
trying to get me to open it.  

In her opinion, the ideal situation would be the doors be open just enough
for her to be half in and half out of any room I'm on.  Unfortunately for
her, I have no intention of air conditioning the neighborhood, so she's going
to have to make up her mind.

dog?

You're *already* doing bad things to the little dog :-)  Install dog doors
(preferably transparent ones) at once in every door she wishes to be on both
sides of simultaneously.  Then spend a week on your hands and knees teaching
her how to use them.  Then learn to love the constant flap flap flap noises.

Just be grateful you only have one small dog instead of THREE large dogs all
of whom have mastered the rude nose forearm push at exactly the critical
moment in typing or stitching.

Glad you're back to beading ...

Ack! Did I actually TYPE that? And, worse, not catch it? WHAP!

Hey Kathy

As someone else wrote, get a dog door. They even make them so that you
can position them in a slider without having to hammer a nail or screw.
My beagle; who thinks I was born to cater to his every whim (okay, so I
was :-D ) loves it! And you don't have to waste all that very valuable ac,
big bonus in my book
Good Luck

Dogs can be so quirkey.  Chelsea had these little things she did that to me
seemed senceless but I guess in her mind, it was normal.  We used to get a kick
out of how she did some stuff.  Even Buddy is doing some of the quirkey stuff
Chelsea did.  We put food down for him and he'll eat a little bit and then
he'll move his nose like he is trying to cover the food up except theres
nothing there to cover the food with except his water dish is right next to the
food.  Sometimes he'll dunk his nose in his water for no reason.  Chelsea did
that to.

Chelsea was afraid when we used the toaster.  I guess she didn't like the noise
when the toast popped up.  Also she got scared when she heard plastic grocery
bags being ruffled, usually it was a cat doing the ruffling and Chelsea always
came to get me.

Sigh, I had one like that.  Buckie was convinved that he was a giant German
Shepherd, and the little fact that he weighed 15 lbs. never deterred him.  He
wasn't vicious at all (never bit anyone but my father), but that dog had no
fear whatsoever.

When my sister took him to the town where she now owns a vacation home, she'd
let him run loose in the woods.  (It was okay, that town only has one road,
and it gets about a car an hour on a busy day)  She took many photos of a
very tiny dog chasing deer, not having a clue that if that deer ever turned
around, he was toast.  My sister never let him run deer for very long, for
fear that the deer would get hurt.

Did you see the show when they put that peat moss up on the walls of one room?
I can just imagine the smell.  Oh and the room that Hildi's face was painted on
the wall?
