Photo Friday

I'm switching most of the photos to black and white, because I can't get the color to look great and show you good stitch definition consistently.

Coming Sunday: Step 2 of several in Gina's Afghan.

Last year, around Christmas time, my sister told me she had jade beads that her mother-in-law had given her that were once part of a necklace. She asked me whether I could do anything with them and thanks to a local craft store where my sister lives, I was able to put together a beautiful set that was perfect for wearing to the family Christmas dinner. -- Joyce
