Let's Polka ..............Dot

Hi there Bloglanders

I hope you are having a Terrific Thursday. Once again my post is a bit late but my husband is away on business and I have to do his part for house, home, office and family as well.  Another thing, I still feel slightly depressed and just can't get going.  I know children should leave home at some stage BUT it is a HUGE thing having no one to worry about - let's rephrase that - you still worry, you just don't see that they are OK on a daily basis.

So, I came up with a plan.  Every day, I hop around Blogland for about half an hour or page through a magazine and choose something I'll try that day. At least it keeps my mind off the empty nest for a while. Sometimes it's a new recipe, a sewing project, a card, a layout or a hybrid project - anything that takes my fancy.

Today I've been inspired by The Twinery's challenge "Let's Polka ........................ Dot".  I stumbled upon it at Monika Wright's blog and then followed her link.  If you want to hop over and look, just click here.

I made this necklace for the challenge

My balls are about 1 inch each and I used about 3 meters (sorry, will have to look up the conversion to yards some time soon) of twine to cover each of them. Now, you might think that's easy but this idea kept my brain busy for more than a few minutes as it is impossible to thread that amount of twine through the hole in a bead. I came up with the perfect solution BUT that I'll only reveal tomorrow as I would love you to come back to play here on my Blog.

I'll be using the same concept for The Play Date Cafe challenge of the week and will take pictures to share exactly what I did.  If you can guess, leave me a comment and your contact details and I'll send you a pressie if you're right. You have until tomorrow's post to figure it out!

That's it from me. I'm off to do some more Twine balls. Have a great day and Let's Polka .............Dot!
