My son's teacher had left me (last fall, duh!) an old necklace that she didn't like anymore and never wore, asking me to create something else out of the green tubular beads. I went through my stash and found fused glass, cat's eye and black onyx beads that matched beautifully, and decided to crochet a pendant using a matching green glass glob and black artistic wire.
She hasn't seen it yet because her arthritis and other problems prevented her from getting out of her house very much with the harsh winter we had here in Quebec, and she stayed home as much as possible, going out only when she really had to. However, I had shown her the partial sketch I made, and she had loved it, so I figure that the finished piece will please her as much as it pleases me!
Now, I'm going back to work on week 28, and when finished, I will be proud of myself for having made all 52 pieces, not on time or always on theme, but all of them will be there!
