My sister from Illinois has been here since Monday night. (Opened the first bottle of wine)  I feel like I'm on a wild goose ride.  We've been on the go since Tuesday morning.  Haven't had a lot of time to do polymer but I did show her a few things and she was really surprised.  She still teaches children with autism, ADD and children who were preemies when they were born and have learning disabilities.  Not sure when she will retire so she doesn't really have time for hobbies right now except drinking wine.  (Tuesday we went to the neighbors and opened the second and third bottle).

At our craft fair last weekend I bought a gift for my girlfriend for her birthday which I can't show on here yet in case she looks at my blog but it had something to do with wire wrapping silver ware.  My sister saw it and asked if I could teach her how to do it.  I had a set of cheese server pieces here so we wire wrapped two of them and here they are:

She gave the one on the left to the neighbors as a gift.  She's there now drinking wine.  I left after one glass.

Big day tomorrow, off to Wickenburg to find some cowboys.  She wants to meet a real cowboy, OH BOY

Time to crash and get ready for another big day with SISTER-SISTER looking for cowboys.  WHOOPEE.

Oh, Bonnie - You do have the most creative ideas - and such gorgeous workmanship. You live in AZ, right? Could you tell me where? I may pass through AZ on my motorhome trip this spring/summer. Would love to connect. ~Carolyn

Awesome wirewrapping...I've seen those around in a lot of craft fairs as well...another on my list to do's. Well, hug a cowboy for me, would ya? Love them cowboys! I had planned on marrying one with a huge ranch and land but I ended up with a so called "cowboy" who had a blue pickup and now I live on an acre with a ranch-style house...not quite what I had in mind but he is a keeper!
