Anyway, my dear Boo has an abscess and it's infected. They gave him a shot of antibiotics and when he looked at me I knew, I was in trouble. Nothing like the wrath of an angry cat. The doctor put me through the routine about how Boo is getting older and his kidney's are weakening and yadda, yadda, yadda. He's not ready and neither am I.
SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE TODAY
Every day I like to learn something new especially about polymer clay or jewelry making or techniques. About a year ago I bought a knotting tool:
so I got them out today and taught myself how to hand knot a necklace. Took it apart after the first 8 beads because I had nasty knot so I started over. Then I realized the bead holes were really too big for this thread but I finished it anyway. Going to have to research the hole sizes for the thread. I also used French wire for the first time. That's kind of interesting:
It's very fine and has a hole through it. You cut a small piece, put it on your thread and then your toggle and it protects the thread from wear and tear from the toggle and it really gives it a nice finished look. I might try this with some of my beading stuff or my wire stuff. Anyway, it was really fun, didn't take long and I think I'm hooked.
This is the necklace on a black background.
This is the necklace on a white background so you can see the beads a little better. Now it just needs a polymer clay pendant.
Now I have to finish my pens for the clay guild swap, the 30 guest gifts for the wedding shower, the donations I promised for the Orlando Clay Guilds Fandango and the animals for Beads of Courage.
I know, I know I should be working instead of blogging but this is like having a BFF sitting on my desk. The cat is deaf and the husband has seletive hearing so here I am again.
Say Goodnight Gracie
