A Container for My Jewels—or Whatever


Notice the design for the bead weaving

Yesterday the perfect Christmas present arrived in my mailbox.  After much futzing about to get it opened, I discovered a wonderful surprise.  My daughter-in-law Tina is a bead weaver, and has many creative ideas about how to use her work.  I received a fabulous fabric–covered box with a very special bead weaving on top.  Notice how it looks like a rug—design, fringe, and all.  It is perfect in every way. Perfect colors, perfect design.  How she has the patience to weave with beads, I’ll never know.  Of course, that’s what they say about tapestry weavers, too!
