Not with 90 degree temps and 100% humidity ! Ick ! It'll come though but not soon enough ! lol !
It's been an interesting week with a bum hand. lol ! I actually know how to get along with a bum hand fairly well. I've had 4 surgeries between both over the years. lol ! Still it really isn't alot of fun. Thankfully, no surgery involved here. Feels like a sprain even though I don't recall hearing the telltale "pop" when you sprain something. I can't get into ortho doc for another week so will have to wait til then to get "official" diagnosis.
With the painful hand, my crafting anything has, let's say, dwindled. Still, I had to give something a try. Got out the loom and got started. I warped it with the new C-Lon size D colored thread I got. Hmmmm, began warping and thought wow, the thread feels very weak to be doing that sort of beading but I continued and finished up the number I needed. Started to bead and it just wasn't working out well at all. Keep in mind, I'm using Dyna-Mites size 11 seed beads. It was hard to manipulate these particular beads using this particular thread. I thought maybe it's just my bum hand getting in the way but I found later it was not. The tension wasn't there either no matter what I did which I though quite odd. Finally, after adding about 3 or 4 rows that took a VERY long time to work, I had enough. Took it all apart and started over with the Silamide thread. No problem at all. So just maybe, the C-Lon size D thread just isn't going to work well FOR ME using the Dyna-Mites seed beads. I know alot of people use it for looming but alot of people use other types of seed beads too.
As I was beading on the loom, my hand was starting to bother me so when the pain got too bad, I just quit which meant, not much got done in a week. lol ! You can see in the photo below just how much DID get done in 5 days. lol ! It's almost 3 inches and it felt like a foot ! lol ! I'll just do what I can when I can.
Cool, fall weather is not too far off now and so the days for beading on a loom are becoming numbered ! I'll be back at my trusty torch very soon melting glass into beads and I am VERY VERY anxious to do just that. :) It seems like FOREVER that I've put in some good time creating with glass and I surely have missed it ! I'll still play on the loom or make a braid or piece of jewelry on days I can't torch. I'll have to cause I just ordered a bunch more seed beads ! lol ! Making beads is my first love though soooooo...............
Time for me to start my day. Thanks so much for coming by ! I hope you come back again soon !
