The Piney Woods are absolutely drenched today! The big rain front rolled in from Texas and is taking its own sweet time moving out. My yard is like a sponge- it "squidges" with every step. The poor flowers have been pummeled and are pitiful.
Still, I am not one to let a dreary day smother my creative tendencies. After the morning toad strangler moved through, a gentle rain settled in and the woods were carpeted with a glistening grey mist. I pulled out a ball of size 8 DMC perle cotton in color #318, a small 2-hole abalone shell button and a 6mm silver-grey Swarovski bicone from the Atelier stashes and tatted this:
A fob for my Gingher scissors.
Something I may try is to stiffen this fob. A multi-media art journaling friend recommended this stuff called "Amazing Fa-Brick". I ordered a small bottle which arrived this morning. Perhaps I'll have a chance to play with it when it's not so humid. Have any of you, dear readers, used this stuff? Amie (my friend) loves it and thinks it's fantastic.
The rain has finally eased-up again, so I will try to get the dogs to go out & take care of "business" before the next rain wave hits. Have a wonderful day and be sure to check the blog tomorrow as there may be something special for my readers posted!
