10:08 pm: To bed, to bed....
Okay, important stuff at the top:

This is the cheetah-themed necklace that I made where the money will go to the World Wildlife Fund.

This is something Smokey used to do -- he was fascinated by the printer -- paper goes in one end and comes out the other smelling differently.

I did a bit of semi-cooking yesterday and I don't know if that contributed, but I came very close to fainting last night. I was in the hallway, things started to go away, I had the wrapped-in-wool feeling, but I learned on the wall and pulled bits back in and eventually got to where I could walk, holding on to the wall. I went to bed and when Spirit woke me up 90 minutes later, I felt much better.

Today was bookgroup, where I need to be brighter and more intelligent than usual, and that takes a lot of effort. I didn't know we'd be waiting so long for dinner after (Logan's Roadhouse, for those that have one near), or I might have skipped that. I'm barely moving at the moment and having trouble keeping my eyes open so I think other than the next two reviews and a couple of blog checks, I'm just going to bed really early. With any luck, I'll be up early tomorrow.

The necklace is eye catching and well balanced. Very nice piece.

Thanks! It's just peyote spiral, more basic than my normal work, but I saw these animal hearts in a bead store closing and couldn't resist getting them. I'll gradually make the rest up for Owen, the teen who is running HOPES as a feeder into WWF, to auction.

And here's the necklace I finished yesterday for the fiancee of a refinance loan guy who worked hard for me, but turned out my mortgage is upside-down (not such a big deal, I'm not moving).

He seemed very squeamish giving me ideas over the phone -- blue, purple, very small neck (this is 14" with 2" chain), not flashy -- but I think I got it. I'll call him tomorrow and have him look at it.

Thanks! More basic than my normal, but I spent hours on it and know it won't really bring much money in. I'll do some of the other animal print hearts (got them at a beadstore closing) differently, but probably not another to put up for a few months. I have other things I need to make first.

Your beadwork compliments the centerpiece perfectly.
I hope you're feeling better after the fainting incident. It sounds pretty scary.
Take good care!

I'm still a bit stiff from sitting up so long, but I don't seem to be likely to faint again! Thanks, Doris! Oh, and by the way, what kind of scanner is it you have?
