Maybe I could start it up and give rides to all the neighborhood kids. Can you imagine me on this monster? What a crazy thought. I would love to ride on it though. Hmmm, maybe I could bribe the operator with donuts and coffee, might work.
Anyway, since I had some time this week to be creative, I worked on a necklace. The word in the fashion industry is that accessories are really big this spring. No, I don't mean popular, I mean LARGE. I loved the neck ware in this article, but didn't think metal flowers would be that comfortable. The other day I saw some really expensive silk flowers in the scrapbooking section that would have made a beautiful focal piece, but I was too frugal to buy them. So, I took apart some silk flowers that I already had and reconstructed them into a neck piece.
I sewed them onto a cloth base and then beaded the centers for a more dimensional look. Click to see details.
This is just the first one and it needs some refining. Someone very near and dear to me, that won't be mentioned, (but his initials are D.H.) got a funny look on his face when he saw it and thought it was much too large. It's the concept, that I like, so perhaps smaller flowers will help the next one. (Yes, Darling, I'm going to do more) I am certainly open to ideas from all of you folks. So let me know if you have any ideas.
Lastly, I recently purchased a random blouse, simply because I loved the color and pattern and when I got home with it, I realized it unintentionally matched the earrings I made several weeks ago. I was going to try to take a picture (in the mirror) of me wearing them, but it turned out so funny that I am calling it "What big hands she has".
Just being silly on a rainy day, waiting for the hubby to come back from playing music. By the way, DH had his hair cut short yesterday, and maybe, just maybe, he will let me post a picture of him. He has worn his hair long for several years now and decided it was time. He went six weeks ago and had about six inches trimmed off and it was still long. Yesterday he went for it, with me standing by, telling Misty exactly how I wanted it. He trusts me with his hair and it turned out great.
Well that's it for now. Hope it's not raining in your neck of the woods, but if it is...get your housework done, and then play indoors. It's ok, it's the weekend!
