What do you do on a sunny day?

Here I am sitting at the computer on a sunny day in Vancouver wrting this post.  I have not written one in a while because I was having issues with my shoulder and the computer work really bothered it.  The computer is in the navigation station on the boat, the counter is too high for a vertically challenged person to sit at and be comfortable.  My shoulder was always elevated and that caused it to freeze up over the xmas period.  My hubby bought me a wireless keyboard and mouse for xmas and let me tell you that has made all the difference.  My shoulder got the rest it needed and I was able to go back to doing the things that I love.  I am currently working on a necklace for the April challenge of Etsy Beadweavers called "Spring around the corner" 

Today in Vancouver it certainly looks like spring, the sun is shinning and it is so bright on the boat that I had forgotten how bright it could be with sunlight.  I am attempting to make a necklace with Daylilies and I have worked out a pattern that I think represents the flower (my favorite of the spring season by the way).  I have not yet got the whole concept of the necklace worked out yet, but I think that there may be a few more lilies in different colours.  I am thinking of a lariat type necklace but who knows, I never do until it is finished.  Here is are some snap shots of the work in progress and you can see how bright a day it really is in Vancouver.  These photo's were taken without any additional light and the sun is reflecting off my lighted magnifying glass (which is not on by the way, as I don't need it when there is this much light).  Here is a photo of the Nav Station on the boat, aka my light box for photographing jewelry.  I use a green quilt to cover the monitor, radios and AC panels.  (That is the green backdrop in my jewelry photo's)


I think beading on a boat in the sunshine must be delightful! Here in snowy Minnesota, the glare from all the white can be a little overwhelming. Soak up some of that sun for me, and I look forward to seeing your "Spring Around the Corner" entry, LOVE the flower!
Thanks Marsha for the support. I still don't know what I am going to do with the Lilly yet.
Fabulous shape, colors and beadwork.
