A couple of weeks after I received the buttons (see last post), my sister called me again and said she had too many beads. Is that possible???

A day or two later, she stopped by with a large bag of beads. :D Apparently she prefers the smaller beads, so most of these are larger beads, but she did include some small ones, too.

Lots of Beads!

Bead Thingy
I'm thinking this will be a zipper pull or phone charm, but I can feel other ideas swirling in the back of my mind. (The green moon shape is just there to hold up the golden piece.)

These look like bits of jade.

More unclear ideas swirling in the back of my mind.

And More Beads!
Some of the middle-to-large beads.

These are plastic dahlias. They don't have holes, so I'll have to use glue or figure out another way to use them in needlework. I tried burning a hole with a hot nail, but that didn't work. If I can find a fine enough drill bit, maybe that will work. (I need to invest in a Dremel tool!)

It feels like Christmas just keeps coming and coming! THANK YOU, Sister!
