We didn't do nearly as much shopping this year as we did last year, which was fine. We were hoping for more stitching time and less time riding in the car, and that's what we got. We did, however, manage to make a sizable bump in the economy of several Breckenridge stores. I personally did my part in the Breckenridge Bead Gallery, where I bought these little animal beads. They were made in Peru, and just so detailed and cute I couldn't resist them. The little bat (lower left) is pewter, and I don't know where he was made, but he has the cutest little face. Also pictured are the two Czech glass buttons I bought, and on the upper left, two chandelier earrings I got at a consignment shop after I got home. They were $3.49 each pair and they each have numerous charm-like componants that will work on CQs.
