Whoops, sorry about that. I didn't mean to disappear. There isn't any good reason for my absence other than being caught up in life. I suppose the biggest news around here was the rare snowfall we received on Friday. School was canceled, adding another day to the long holiday weekend (Mardi Gras is Tuesday, so Monday & Tuesday are holidays). That ended up being a day full of cooking, baking, and eating. Isn't that what you're supposed to do on a snow day?
With my finger healing, I thought I'd get some sewing done. I attempted, but I ended up with another injury - I sewed through my finger!! Yes, the needle went through one side of my index finger and out the other, right on the side of my nail - OUCH!!! My poor hands have been having a tough time lately. The tenderness is gone now, so I think I'll be in business as soon as all my ordered supplies arrive. Yes, once I got started I realized that I was out of everything - interfacing, zippers, and magnetic snaps. At this point the only thing I'm waiting on is interfacing. All these delays are starting to concern me...I only hope that once I get everything needed I still feel like sewing.
With sewing & knitting on the back burner due to injuries, I was beginning to feel twitchy. I can only redecorate my chandelier so many times, so I had to find something creative to do.
I made some jewelry. I am no jewelry designer by any means, so don't laugh, but think these came out okay (well, that silver glass bead one is a kind of shiny). I have no doubt that I'll wear them. At this point, I feel like I'm still searching for my style. To me, all three of these necklaces are quite different, but that's all part of the learning process, right? It was fun playing with my beads, though it only makes me want more. Have you ever shopped for beads? They're like CANDY...and I have a big time sweet tooth!!! Seriously, I need to practice some self restraint!! I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head.
