New auctions up for Beading For a Cure -- all winning bids will go to the National Colorectal Cancer Research Association. We have six necklaces, all very different (I bid on one!) -- one with a pendant watch, one with a fiber base, and one that comes with runes. Have a look!

Today, the car in the parking lot directly outside my porch has a sunroof and an air deflector in front of it. The male mourning dove clutched the top of the deflector with the wind ruffling his feathers; a figurehead for the gray car.

I put a bid on my favorite. Either I will get it, or the charity will get a lot of money -- either way it's a win.

Thanks! Someone I know with lots of money outbid me on the dragonfly necklace, so I just put in another bid. My last, and there's a good chance she'll outbid me again. Oh well, at least we'll have lots of money for NCCRA!

It was gorgeous but over my limit. And the other was my favorite.

We do this every year; in fact, we just got the kits for next year. We don't know what the colors are until we get the kits and have to keep it secret until everybody gets theirs. The kits are $20 and are worth closer to $30-35 so we require that people either make something and send it back or give us the starting price ($24.99). People make all sorts of things. You can see the gallery for this year here:

This is our third week of eight, so we've already sold 16 of those.
