Good afternoon, dear readers!
It was so nice to sleep in this morning and be lazy. We are in the midst of a bit of Spring cleaning and a few other activities. Jim is bottling his most recent batch of stout beer, Jocelin is tending to her chickens and I've been taking tatting breaks in between Spring cleaning chores.
I found some lovely lavender AB Swarovski bicones whilst cleaning and had to stop and play a bit. This is what I'm working on:
The thread I'm using is Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S49 (Subtle Elegance). There are also quite a few Czech seed beads, too, in a nice purple/lavender color. I'm trying to decide what I want to do with the center- add a lavender freshwater pearl or do a fluffy picot center in a complimentary purple. What do you think?
Our Rosie Fey is growing like a weed! She is 10 weeks old and is so full of energy and attitude. Here are some shots from our walk in the Piney Woods yesterday:
"Where's that squirrel, Mama?"
Pollen is everywhere! My boots are a very dark brown, but they were totally covered in pollen with just a few strides in the woods.
Here she is, being sweet for her Mama.
Well, I had better get back to the cleaning. I'm sure the scrubbing bubbles have done their thing in the bathroom. When I'm through there, I hope to get back to my tatting project. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
