We did go by my sister's to celebrate her birthday. Triple chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream and home-made by our brother dark chocolate sauce. (The cake may look white, but that's white chocolate.)
SJ Designs beads. I knew what I wanted to do, but couldn't make the design come together. Endless ripping. Sunflowers we bought my sister for her birthday inspired me again and I've finally got the project underway (after about 15 years or so...). I have this row charted then I hope to make it dimensional with semidetached petals.
