I had such a horrible start to the morning!!! Every morning my son and I walk our gorgeous 12 year old dog Kaya on the way to his kindergarten.... and this morning was no different... except we were attacked by two crazed dogs who slipped out of their garden and attacked my poor Kaya!!! I felt so helpless... one dog was biting her neck the other her backside... and all I could do was block my son by sandwiching him in between me and the wall... and poor Kaya was looking at me with such helpless eyes... I feel so guilty I couldn't do more for her... but obviously I needed to protect my 4-year-old.... thankfully, and I'm not sure how, she had no cuts... Thank G-d she has thick hair, it obviously protected her... my son and I were a bit shell shocked... but we were all ok.... Problem is I have to go past this house everyday 4 times per day, as it's on the same road as the kindergarten, and it's not the first time they escaped and attacked!!! I called the authorities... I later received a phone call from the city vet, saying that they went to the house, spoke to the owners, who promised that it wouldn't happen again... yeah... same owners who didn't even bother to apologise while they were kicking their own dogs to try and get them to release their grip from Kaya's neck.... not an apology, not a... are you ok? is your son ok?... nothing!!!! I really hope they take better care not to allow their dogs out unleashed and un-muzzled!!! but I know they won't...
Anyway... so I got home really shaken up... needed something to chill me out big time... so I started to bead... and bead, and bead :-) seems that beading has become my sanity... and here is what came out! Picture Framed Pendant
I love the Picture Jasper stone.... it reminds me of these oil paintings my parents used to have around the house when I was a little girl :-)
This was so much fun to make!!! I love beadembroidery!!!! :-)
The picture isn't the best... but it was a bit cloudy and windy, so I had to take the photos really quickly because the wind kept on blowing my setup all over the place...
Now I really must do some 'real' work!!! :-)
