It's been one of those weeks. Sigh. Nothing accomplished at all as far as any crafty or artsy projects. :(
- Melting glass to make beads is still on hold due to heat and humidity.
- Working braids is on hold due to hand/thumb area injury and I have no idea how or what I did but the pain is severe. Can't manipulate cords too well with a bum hand/thumb area.
- I haven't had a chance to work with the loom due to my hand and time. It's been a week full of appointments, doctor and otherwise.
So what HAVE I done ? Not much at all. lol ! I'm ready to get moving again too ! I get bored so darned easily and feel like if I'm not doing a little something most of the time, I'm wasting time. Kinda a dumb way to be I guess but when I get too lazy, that laziness is hard to get away from. lol ! Does that make sense ?
So I have no tales to tell, no lessons I've learned or in process of learning. No insights to share at all - that I can think of anyway. lol !
I do know that I have some dye, white satin cording and instructions on how to hand dye my own satin cording and it just sits. I COULD be doing that. lol ! I've hand dyed my own SILK cording in the past and must say I really enjoyed it BUT, it is quite time consuming so I'm guessing the satin cord will be the same. Plus not only dyeing is involved ! You gotta unwind the cord first then wind a specific way for dipping or painting then dye then once dried you gotta wind into a ball or whatever. Now, I am talking about no small amount of cording !! Each "ball" of cord is 144 yards long ! And that's probably why I'm procrastinating about it. lol ! So it sits in my craft closet with all the other "stuff". lol ! Hmmm, maybe I'll go for the loom again afterall..........................lol !
I've added a few oldies but goodies photo's below just to add some color to this post. Hopefully next week I'll be able to show something I've done lately !
Thanks so much for coming by ! I hope you come back again very soon !!
The next two photo's are of beads I made a VERY long time ago. The first one is of a set I have always regretted selling ! lol ! I can't remember what I used either. Oh well........ The doll beads were some of my very first. The one on the far right IS my very first. :) The one to the right of the dime is the tiniest I've ever made.
