Projects everywhere... and making progress on all fronts. I did finish the vine part of one side of the spider bag and it is getting a good stretch. I used a silk ribbon back stitch and wrapped it with more silk ribbons in different shades of green..
Now ready for adding webs... fun part.
Making the jewelry is helping to fill the time I can't stitch and it feels good using all the stash I had accumulate over the years for "some day" Well now is the "some day" It starts with just adding bits and pieces to a pile on the table. This time I especially wanted to use an old green brooch with sirens on it. When the pile gets large enough I start fussing with it. In this pile are 4 old necklaces, some filigree findings, a bracelet and assorted beads.
I had lost complete control of the Etsy button site and have finally tackled it. What a mess of half-finished buttons, expired buttons, buttons to be carded and posted, etc. .. It didn't help that Etsy made a lot of changes in the site. Hope to finish that project next week and will feel redeemed as it has been nagging at me for literally months.
And somehow I have lost my phone... On a positive note I had some leftover duck in the freezer and am inspired to use it in some puff pastry that needs to be used. Should go well with braised red cabbage and roasted beets...
Also today finishing up a secret project for granddaughter Madi's wedding reception... can't photo it yet.
