Don't Mention Weaving!...

This morning, I refused to even think of the above as a pastime....None of that stuff today!

I got out the case that I fixed up with all of the wire weaving stuff and chaos ensued...

Have you ever tried to keep order in about a dozen different kinds of wire and lots of stones? 

It is nearly impossible.  Ask Tessie.  She helped...

Don't ask the names of the various stones that I used.  I could look them up, but I'm not really in the mood.

First I did a couple of wire wrapped rings.

I used square bronze wire on the top one and plain old copper on the one with the green glass bead.
I had some silver plated, square wire left that is banded with half round bronze, on the fossil  on the left.  The one on the right has square copper wire and a shell bead.
This is my favorite, out of all of them.  It is some kind of agate and I used bronze, square wire on it.  I think that I am going to have to find a chain of kumihimo to put that one on right away.  The photo doesn't do it justice.

I decided to do some of the old stones and fossils that I had, before getting to the new stuff that I bought a couple of weeks ago.

Right now, I am watching three squirrels chase each other around the yard...

Maybe I will be back to minis tomorrow....Maybe not.   I do know that I won't be weaving.  I stopped last night, after working on the roof of Widget's house.  I need a break to refocus my eyes...

See you tomorrow.
