After three or four days of wet outside, and aching to my insides, the rain finally left us last night. YAY!...And just like the colorful skirt, walking away, on the lady in the header photo, our rain walked away from us in a colorful way too last night. It left us a colorful show...a lightening show in the skies. And it was loud too!!...Thank you!....and Bye! Bye!...Can you feel my smile?! ^_^
Moving on!...I wanna show you what I've been doing with my rainy day time! :-) I've been exercising my achy 'digits' (fingers), using my tiny needles too!...
This little 'baby' is about an inch across...I made it because of inspiration from a request I got from a customer the other day, to make him three tiny lapel pins. He wanted them about 1/8 of an inch across...But an inch was as good as I could do without ending up with a flimsy ball of misshaped thread! LOL
I'm not sure he's gonna want them. He says he'll get back to me. But the link he shared with me to show me what he meant got all of my creative juices flowing about lapel pins again! So...I'll be making more of them in the upcoming days...but with more color than this black one! :-]
Right now I'm all about crochet rings! :-)
And thankfully my rings are a little bit...JUST a little bit!...larger than the lapel pins.
I am having soooooo much fun with the ring-making!! :-)
The open filigree work on the ring base is making it very easy to sew my crochet flowers to them too...I was worried about that before I got them.
This is the one I finished last night....during the lightening show...
I saw an article that said orange and purple were the colors to have this year...
Stay tuned for the purple one!! :-))
But rings isn't ALL I've been making!...I'm still working on my 'Tie-Dye' jewelry. I finished this necklace yesterday too...
Instead of a gun metal chain or a leather cord, I decided to go with an organza and ribbon necklace on this one...
And the button, although you probably can't tell from my picture-taking! ^_^, looks sorta like a small artist's palette.
Oh! The colors are making me so happy! :-)
Lastly today, I wanna give a 'high five' to the country music group Lady Antebellum. They did a concert last night to help raise money for a town that was devastated by tornadoes. I think the news said they raised something like $200,000!!! :-) I think that's great! That's why people run to 'them' nowadays!!! :-)
Have a good day, Everybody!! :-)
You can build a reputation,
build a fire, build a stair;
You can build a neighborhood,
build a table, build-A-Bear!
You can build a layered cake,
build some buildings, build a boat;
You can build a website business,
build relationships remote.
You can build vocabulary,
build up friendships old and new.
Build up globular relations
if you really wanted to.
You can build upon your knowledge,
build a table, bridge, or train;
build a step into the future,
or just shelter from the rain.
You can build an awesome snowman,
and not waste him. Make a cone!
Or can build up folks around you,
so they never feel alone.
All this building talk,
shows the things that you can make
if you build a wordy poem...
and you also stay awake!
