I didn't get too far in the book club selection this month, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. In fact, I found myself stuck at the end of Chapter Nine with no chance of finishing it by the meetup!
I had a hunch that a lot of folks were going to take the sea glass, geode route, and so I just decided to go the yellow route.
In fact, I designed one of my beading basics class necklaces with this in mind:
This is made of vintage plastic and vintage seed beads. The plastic beads have a really cool faux woodgrain look and the necklace makes a great addition to a crisp white shirt.
No sadness when you wear it!!!! Promise!!!!
So, back to my actual book club project....
The week of the meet up, I was a single white Mom. Erik (my husband) had flown to Portland for the week for business, Elliott graduated from Kindergarten, and the week was the kick off of the summer T-ball season.
I almost missed it because I had no other option but to come late and with two kids in tow... Not the best option, and certainly not my favorite, but it got us there!
We enjoyed chips and salsa, Andrew's delicious spaghetti and cake, and of course some of my liquid cake.
We also celebrated my belated birthday (thank you all!!!) and also that I hadn't actually missed the evening afterall. 4 years strong and haven't missed one yet!!!!!
So, really, I enjoy the meet ups more than the books now... And because I really don't have too much to say about this book, I can show you (finally) what I came up with.
Ok, I'm lying...I can show you what I INTENDED to make.
Isn't it beautiful?!?!?!?!?!
So, hope you enjoyed my post.
If I get to it one of these days, I will be sure to post what I made with this assortment....
Had the best of intentions, but I just couldn't make this miracle happen this month.
Until the next book!!!! L
