Now, on to the life at this park!
Next to my motorhome is another volunteers's RV. She is a beader ( using that term for lack of a better one). She's quite accomplished, and I decided I would try to learn a little more about beading from her. Anita (my neighbor) taught me the peyote stitch, so I practiced that for a few hours, till I thought I had it mastered.
I have a box with my beads and threads, etc kept inside. I have a bag of pink beads which a friend gave me, and I decided to make a beaded collar for my female, Fleur. I decided that if Bunny (the world famous greyhound who writes her own blog) could wear pink collars, then Fleur could, too.

I got out my loom, threaded it and started weaving the pink beads.
I have to measure the neck of my female, Fleur, and then I have to sew a backing to the beaded weaving, and then fasten it to a leash with an adjustable slide.
The above collar is a picture from the http://www.dogcollarsboutique.com/Martingale-Hound-Dog-Collar-w-Leash-11-patterns-p-614.html
This collar and leash does not have hardware to adjust the size, so therefore
So, I will sew a backing on the beaded weaving, and then attach the leash, and I should have a really stunning pink collar and leash for Fleur.
I will show the finished product when I have finished it.
