Then I found this wonderful small beaded tatted heart online and made earrings from them. The thread is more maroon than pink-red as the camera has captured it. The beads are Swarovski 4MM AB coated bi-cones that I bought from Hobby Lobby while they were half-price. The thread is size 10 Classic Crochet thread.
I used to feel that all the hub-bub over the Swarovski crystals were just that, hub-bub. Well I have grown to love the sparkle they produce. HA! I must have Swarovski! I cannot say the name properly so I say Sworskivorski. The bead shop I shop at the most knows what I mean and she doesn't mind my goofy name for them. She'll correct me and I'll just agree "Yeah-yeah, those crazy things!" LMAO!!
Maven over on Ravelry invited me to participate in a "Scrumble" round-robin. A Scrumble, as she describes it is free-form crochet (sometimes knit). I said why not. She invited me to swap so I'll give it a go. It'll give me an excuse to crochet as I have not done so in a very long time (talking many years here).
I am almost done with a caplet I am knitting for a demo for the yarn-shop. In-between tatting, beading, and other creative activities it is going slower than it would have otherwise. That is okay though.
I have an idea on how to MAKE a shuttle. I've looked online and others who make them and I have plenty of polymer (fimo) clay around so I am gonna take a gander and see what I can come up with. Poly clay may be too flexible so I may end up having to make a "skeleton" out of shrinki-dink plastic (of which I also have plenty of from my days of being a rubber stampaholic). I am also still working on a basic spinning tutorial for the fans of you tube. I am having issues with getting the right angle, coupled with not a whole lotta time to record in = longer than expected production time. Sorry! I'd rather have a GOOD tutorial than a half-ass one. I'm sure you'd agree. Speaking of video making, those RAM chips we rain-checked from Best Buy are FINALLY in. However, the money I gave Mike so he could stop by on the way home from work to purchase them with, has used the money...for gas I suspect. SOoooooooooooo it has to wait till next Friday. I am just a but annoyed at him because he said he was gonna take it out of his account so he would not spend it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
And now...to the Craft Cave!! *Cue retro batman theme....Craft Cave!, Craft Cave!, Craft Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaave! do-de-do-de-do-de-do-deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*
Until next time...
