My last wire project was very consuming, and I felt a need to take a break from my wire for a little while. My husband always laughs at me when I say I'm taking a break. He knows it only means I will madly throw myself into some other craft for a while, until I start playing with the wire again. He's right.
I spent a few days working on some bead embroidery, on and off, and for the last two days, I have been crocheting again. I made up a design for a tapestry crochet skull bag a few months ago (at the suggestion of my husband), and they are so darn cute, I keep making them! The first was for a friend who was visiting town from Boulder. He got a black one with three skulls in red. Then each of my daughters wanted one, and of course I had to make one for my love! (since it was his idea in the first place). I made a gray and red one for another friend, then didn't make any more until I thought, maybe I should make one for myself. I started last night with a red bag with a white skull, but when it was done, it was too red for my taste. I made up a gray one with a white skull, but it still wasn't quite right, so I keep crocheting. I feel like Goldilocks - this one is too red, and this one isn't colorful enough, but I still haven't found the combination that is "just right" for me. But I am having fun trying!
Meanwhile, I have some jewelry ideas percolating in my brain. It won't be long before I have to start madly making jewelry again. I'll have some more goodies to share soon!
'Til then, thanks for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying the spring weather! ~Pippi
I have always loved making things with my hands. It has always amazed me that I am able to take an image in my mind and make it come into form. Like magic!
I will never have enough time to create all the wonderful things waiting to come to life from my imagination, but you can see a few of the lucky ones that actually get made here.
I hope they bring a bit of joy to your day!
Thanks for looking!
