I was pleasantly surprised during my trip to Walmart to discover this lovely one that is exactly the right height, has a nicely padded seat, swivels and is actually attractive -- all that at a price I could afford!! Whooot!!
I'm thinking that at least part of this will make it into a piece of work for the Parched Earth series.
It's all about being aware of what is around you.
These are beaded leaves 4, 5, 6 and 7 -- moving right along here
I've just ordered the beads I need to do the outside edges of all of this piece (since I've decided to enter it in a Fire Mountain Gems competition, I'm being really picky about the finishing process).
By the time those beads get here I hope to have all the rest of the leaves finished and ready.
Once again this week there are wild fires filling the news.
This is the concept "drawing" for a piece I'm working on that is tentatively titled "Fire" for the Parched Earth series
I'm not sure if I'm done "tweeking" this design yet -- right now the trees and warped studs look like they are "floating" and I'm not sure that's what I want it to look like
Still thinking about it
Some time was spent making up a batch of strawberry jam -- and it's quite yummy
It's been a good year for strawberries, and we didn't have any more strawberry jam in the cabinet, so it was time
I'm hoping to get my hands on some apricots to do a batch of jam from them soon
