Yes, I talk to my beads. Not worrisome until I report that they've begun to talk back.
Anyway, several projects got worked on, more got started, and a whole bunch are sitting there just waiting for clasps, earwires, or other finishing touches. I'm particularly excited about one I'm calling The Triplets -- a trio of jasper beads that I'd embroidered a while back, but hadn't made into a finished...whatever.
Frankly, it had been sitting on the UFO (unfiished objects) pile for a long time, as contemplated what kind of beadwoven neckstrap to make for it. Then today, it struck me that perhaps the Triplets would shine more beautifully if they were surrounded more simply.

So here they are, suspended from a simple neckchain of onyx and gold beads. The clasp is not yet made, so the photo only shows a portion of the piece.
Tomorrow morning brings a visit to the dentist, to get some filling replaced (oh joy, oh rapture...oh, sure). The afternoon will likely be spent on the sofa, finishing the projects that just lack findings and other completing touches while the novocaine wears off. (Who knows, maybe the novocaine will make the beads start talking to me!)
