I really like the teal speckled beads but maybe they're too much for this snowflake. Or maybe I'm just being too critical about it all. My brother asked for a "blurple" colored one, blue and purple. I'm making him a Jan Stawasz snowflake.
For my coworkers, I'm going to make a simpler design, since I have to make quite a few. I really want to add beads to them all, and have them sparkly. I have three patterns in mind, but we'll see how much time I can spare. Tomorrow is my niece's first birthday. Then the first week of holiday craziness starts. Unfortunately my company will be open Thanksgiving night, and I will be working a total of 16 hours from the start of that until the next evening. I'm so going to be in zombie mode those two days. I plan on taking a few fully loaded shuttles with me. There's no way I'm leaving the store only to try to come back four hours later in that crowd. So I'll have four hours in the breakroom to tat and relax. It's not that bad though, last year the crowd was patient and understanding, the day passed so quickly. I was headed home before I knew it. Here's hoping this year follows in the same way.
