The Hurrier I Go, The Behinder I Get....
This morning I had this mess on my bed. That was the largest surface to spread out the boxes.
I am sorting through the plano boxes with needlework and beading supplies. I am to the point that I can't find anything again.
This is only a fraction of the stuff that I need to go through. Before I am finished, I expect to be cross eyed or blind from sorting tiny things.
These three pieces are done with buttons in the center, with over dyed thread. They will eventually become some kind of jewelry.
After I gave up on the tatting, I moved on to more gourd baskets. The one that I was working on is by Zar's feet.
I actually got three rows done on that. It must be some kind of record. I don't usually get that much done at the meetings. There is always too much food and talk to concentrate on minis.
On the left is one of the whole gourds marked and ready for cutting. In the center is the bottom half of one of the gourds.
The one that I was working on has a hole in the bottom, where the neck was before I sawed it apart. I will put a base under it of either leather or card. Sometimes, if I am ambitious, I even coil a bottom for them.
Anyway, so much for minis...Not a record day. I will try harder tomorrow.
See you then.
