with this color scheme anyway
some of these pieces were left over from the chocolate cherry jewelry -- those ovals on the right hand side for instance
since I had already started bezeling those, and the tubes of beads are still out in the work tray, I've decided to go ahead and create one more bracelet
this one, however, will be very different from the other pieces as it will be irregular edged and made up of odds and ends of stones, shell and glass
a good exercise in free form work after the more formal work of the last pieces
under the category of "thanks, but no thanks"
yesterday's mail included the notification that this piece did not make the cut in the competition it was entered in
I need to take some new pictures of it so I can go ahead and list it in my Etsy store
and I think I won't be entering this particular competition again ---
attempt #2 at the mug
and I'm much happier with this one
brighter, more interesting
the fabric was left over from a charity quilt top I made earlier in the year (one more example of why I don't just toss those little oddments when a project is completed!)
should be ready to start stitching this down to the background this evening
yesterday's grackle converted to a line drawing
this is my plan for the next quilt in the Visioning Project
and hey, those are pretty recognizable bird shapes -- including that one that is not just a straight profile!
I'm hoping to start pulling out fabrics for this piece this afternoon
yesterday we had to make a run to Denver to pick up the scroll saw
the only place in our little village to have that kind of work done closed right after the Waldo Canyon fire this summer, leaving us with only the Denver location for this sort of repair --- it's sort of a pain in the butt
time in the van, however, does translate into charity knitting getting completed, which is a good thing
and on the way back we decided to go ahead and do some Christmas shopping that we usually do on the Monday after Thanksgiving when we're en route home from our daughter's house
pretty cool being a bit ahead of the game with that
time to get busy --- projects are waiting!
