You ARE reading that correctly. I'm working hard to up my pace. The next line will tie in nicely with Up Parasol. It has a mod & playful spirit. The other one is a surprise and won't be shipping for a long while (next summer?). ;-) Heather

Thank you, Holly. I'm always working on something! —Heather
Above, I'm using a bezel setting, which is a pre-made necklace finding. It looks a bit like an embroidery hoop, but it doesn't function in the same way. I'd love to see how your idea works. How well do your necklaces hold up? Is there enough weight to the finished pendants that they will hang nicely and stay forward-facing? —Heather
I'm excited to see what she has. Thanks for the tip. —Heather
Thank you, Kelly.
You can stitch the designs out in any stitches you like. If you're sure you want to do the herringbone—it does look really neat—I'll pull out my sample and see if I can put some instructions together to share how I did that. —Heather
Thanks, Charlotte. I wish it were realistic to work at that speed every day, but alas, it's not. I learned to accept that a long time ago. I'm just grateful for a super-productive day every once in a while. Feels good. —Heather

Thanks, Kerry. I didn't know Travis myself. But I sure know his son who my daughter plays with every single day. We will be much more alert to his needs going forward. And their family is certainly in our prayers.

If you're able to access the voting, then you're in good shape. I have just read elsewhere to warn everyone that the page might not be accessible from a mobile device—at least till their programmers have a chance to look into it. I'm glad to hear that an iPad works! Thanks for letting us know. xo—Heather
Mary Ann! It was a true pleasure to meet you as well. Thank you for introducing yourself. I would love to get to know you more. All my love to you and your family. —Heather

Kerry, you are the best. I don't know how you get so much done—and still comment as much as you do. You are super generous. Thank you for this great quote. If anyone knows how to defeat a challenge it's Helen Keller. xo—Heather

Thanks, Lisa. I feel very uplifted this week despite the challenges—or perhaps, in light of them. xo—Heather
