Penny just called with a BIG bead order, so I may have to put my fairy experiments on hold for a few days...I bet I can sneak in a few at the beginning of the sessions though...If nothing else, I have become a wizard at making that heart shape!
Yesterday I made the mistake of waiting till the end of the session to try the fairies...my brain and arms were tired and it showed in the results, they are pretty so-so...I spent most of the day on small sized wave beads, to be used with one of Penny's newest findings, the mermaid tail! Allow me to premiere it here:
I love this-can't wait to see it in person. Look at that cat-fish! He looks very smug and cute doesn't he?
I hear the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday, which is fine with me
. The robins must have heard about it, because instead of heading on their way, they came back and this time landed in our yard. -------> click to see them!
The photos can't really do justice to the numbers, especially as a flock of 'campus birds' showed up and landed right in the middle of them...look at that one in flight on the right!
I hope this gives a little idea of them, they were pretty spread out over about two or three times this area...here's a closer shot:
And a close up of one little cutie:
We really don't see robins around here the rest of the year, so it is pretty neat to see them. Hope you enjoyed our little nature walk, now I'd better get out there and work on this order!
Thanks for coming by...until next time...
