Newness and such

At this very moment, I have a sinus headache.  But, I have been moving all day in fear that I might just collapse from fatigue. Have you ever felt like that?
So, what did I do?  Well, first I got Livi to school and then I went to school....

Then I started this:

Then I received this in the mail!  It's so pretty!! Thank you so much Frivole/ LaCossette!
It's a Clover shuttle with Cherry Blossoms!! I love everything about this shuttle!  It's so fabulous! :o)

But anyway, back to my schedule, then I wrote up two data reports for Genetics Lab and then finished this:

Overall I love it! It was fun to make and didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would.

However, I seriously need to do something about this part:

This part is not working for me. At ALL!

I thought about not posting pictures of this, because I may give it away as a Christmas present and some of my family does read the blog.  But, I like it, so I may keep it.  But, who knows.

Anyway, does any one have any suggestions how to neatly add a bead toggle??


  1. The bracelet is really pretty. I've been wondering about adding toggles myself, since I found some yesterday in my stash and thought I might make some bracelets for market. I'll be tatting the bracelets, so thought I could just join to a ring, but that doesn't help you! I hope someone else has the answer. Get some sleep now.

  2. Hi Jess,
    You could add the small seed beads to cover the threads to the toggle. Or end the beaded bracelet like a band and use jump rings to add a metal toggle.

    1. Thanks! I used seed beads and it looks a lot better now. :o)

  3. Lovely bracelet, I hope your headache disappears, sorry I don't have any other ideas apart from what Wendy gave you

  4. hope you are feeling better. sinus headaches are no fun at all.
    I don't bead (except picots in tatting) so have no ideas for you.

  5. Hope you are fully recovered today! We are all waiting with bated breath for the results of week 3 of Secret Santa.

  6. Sorry to hear you're not up to snuff, I know how those sinus headaches can be, no fun. Praying you're doing much better, and back to yourself soon.
