In the mean time I've been busy with other busy-work things. Getting gift boxes stamped and Thank You cards ready.
My knitting hands are at it and last night I began a pair of mittens using DPNs (double pointed needles) I would love to have a pic here, because the color is luscious!)
Yesterday I was able to finish this and add it to my shop
Autumn's Petite Spinner Ring Size 8.25
Though the actual pic I took was this:
These were also added to my Etsy shop:
(they really swing and move with you as you wear them, love them)
a little girl from our neighborhood came over to my front yard and asked me why I was taking pictures of jewelry inside of flowers. I tried to get she and her little sister to notice the butterflies all over our butterfly bush (so I could keep snapping shots of my new earrings) but she was more interested in this odd mix of metal over flower. So, I explained the sun and the shine of the silver and the background and macro lens, and before long she was looking at the butterflies on the butterfly bush and tuning me out. Her little sister, who can walk very well now, was picking up these small white rocks from my garden, she would get 1 or 2 in her tiny fist and go for a 3rd and drop the others, she kept at it till her mother told her we don't need those white rocks honey, put them back. I guess kids are attracted to what is at eye level to them. It was a welcome diversion to see the girls and their mom and chat a bit.
In other news:
I've opened up the gates to taking all custom orders (including spinner ring orders) again.
Hopefully I'll have some new chunkier and funkier ones out soon.
