I've been organizing my bedside table and in one
of the drawers, I keep my everyday jewelry.
Nothing expensive or precious but each one marking an
exciting trip or an instant-smile-on-my-face memory.
These wanna-be gold bangles remind me
of a merry wedding evening in Seville.
Sheesh, I haven't put them on in a long time!
And that's a blah.
I guess this calls for a make-over.
So I pulled out some matching thread
and some beads from my sewing kit.
TADA! A new look for my bangles!
I "sewed on" a blanket stitch using my fingers and
inserted the beads in an alternating pattern.
I started and ended with multiple loops
so the thread won't unravel.
These remind me of what ladies in India might wear.
And while I've never been to India,
I can always pretend.
Have a wonderful week and to everyone
in the U.S., Happy Memorial Day!
