A co-worker of a friend asked me to make my Birds Nest necklace for her, using pink beads instead of blue. I finished it last night, and am quite happy with the way it turned out.
I really like the pink colors with the copper. My 11-year-old, Katie, said she didn't like it because "that pink pearl looks nothing like an egg". Gotta love the bluntness of a child. I sent a pic to the recipient this morning and she likes it. That's all that really matters!
The plumbers finished up yesterday, and while the problem is better, it's not 100% fixed. We're thinking now they may have to dig up the main line, which I'm sure will be a big mess and even bigger expense. Guess that's what we get for living in a 74-year-old house. It's charming, but problems tend to arise. I'm thinking about a big etsy sell to offset the plumbing expense. I know one thing--judging by their fees I'm in the wrong business!
