Okay, it seemed like a simple thing.
I wanted to put beads on the bottom edge of the Angel Lace Shawl, so I went to Jo-Ann's with my shawl and picked out some pearl-type beads that looked pretty good.
I sat down to work on it & discovered that the holes in the beads were microscopic. Unwilling to be discouraged, I tried using one of those things that you use to floss your teeth when you have braces. It broke. (These holes are SMALL).
After brainstorming a bit, I got out the drill and spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to change the drill bit. Ten minutes later, I took the drill to Christopher and he changed it.
I started to drill a hole in the bead while holding the bead with my fingers. Then, I thought better of it and found Theresa's little jewelry-making pliers.
I am not a home-improvement kinda girl, so it's pretty funny to me that I even got this far. I was committed to making the beads work, but not that committed.
Why would I want beads on that shawl anyway?
(Yes, Ginny, that is your drill. Have you been looking for it?)
