Rainy Weekend Fun

We had rain all weekend (except when it was snowing), so I spent most of my time inside. I took this opportunity to go back to an old hobby of mine--beading. That was motivated by the fact that I needed to clean the room where my work space was for another reason. And when I saw that I could actually sit down at my beading table, the call of the beads was more that I could resist. I was itching to take the large jumble of beads I have to see what I could do with them. I decided to make badge holders for some of my coworkers. I had to do a bit of creative design to work with just what I had on hand. It was much too yucky out to go for more supplies. However, I liked the challenge of this.

So what did I end with? I ended up with five new badge holders to add to ones that I had made before. After my intense sessions yesterday,  today I'm going to see if I can get my eyes to refocus more than five inches in front of my face. :)

Here are a few pictures of the fruits of my labor. The pictures didn't turn out so well, but I think you'll get the idea of the tedious detailed, fun weekend I had.

Is there an old hobby that you want to try again?
