It seems that I tend not to blog unless I have pictures to share. So lets start there today shall we?
When I made these wavy ruffle beads I was just playing around a bit with the last bit of a colour mix. There is a slight size gradation and I like how that turned out. I really wish I had kept that size/ratio in some form of record, but that’s what ends up happening when I play. I’ll probably get distracted on to something else trying to figure it out again, but that’s the plan next time I sit down at the worktable. The best part of this is that I ordered those buri nuts and on the day they arrived in the mail I had them made into jewelry. That has never happened before. Ever.
Speaking of my worktable, I’ve had the start of an idea hanging out there for at least two weeks now. It’s for the ABS monthly challenge and as I linked that I see the deadline is pretty much now, so I guess I won’t make it. Oh well, I had hoped to keep the string going but I guess I’ll miss the fun this time. Although the piece still needs to be made to satisfy my brain, someday at least.
I’ve been busy with other projects I can’t share just yet. There’s more I made along side one said project which I’m also not sharing yet since I don’t want to give any hints at all. Vague much?
So my husband bought a car today and I received a new recipe from a friend. For those who know me well, they know the second part of that sentence is the shocker. There is only one thing I can cook and that is carrot cake (priorities people!). October 1st my husband will be starting a new job – across town – with long hours. That’s all fine by us since he was laid off way back in February. Finding a job that he is excited about and knows he can really make his own is really a great thing. Small side effect is that he won’t be home in time to feed his loving wife and child. Now I get to learn how to cook! I know, how could a “woman of my age” not know how to cook? What can I say it happened.
I hope I catch some enthusiasm about this new adventure into the kitchen. I’m sure I’ll find a way to enjoy it and have Averleigh help and it will all turn out well. We will have fun. We will eat good food. And if all else fails there was a four month period when I survived on almost peanut butter toast alone…. I won’t let it get to that. Feel free to poke fun at my spoiled self – but then please pity me and share your recipes. Unless they contain celery. Celery is not a food.
