Wow, San Diego weather is insane. 72 degrees for a high temp? In August? You must be kidding me. How nice that I got home just in time for the hottest week so far this year. Yuck.
So, about Craft Week....we did play with a few ideas, but I have to confess we mostly just played!
I got a new tool at the Show, a wire coiling thing, so I can now make fabulous springy coiled beads using YARN!!! All those gorgeous, glittery fun yarns that I have to have 'just one ball' of now have a real use. It is such fun. I'll post a picture when I have a big pile of them to show you, and that will be very soon, as I've been cranking away most evenings since I got it.
Along with fiber beads, I've been cranking out the glass beads too. I will be showing at the Austin Bead Society Bead Bazaar at the end of the month, and it is definitely crunch time!
Speaking of crunch, I'm baking dog cookies at the moment. Penny has been doing it for the Yorkies for a while and they really like it...make little cookies out of canned food and bake until crisp. It actually doesn't smell as bad as I had thought; it is really like meatloaf. The dogs think it smells GREAT and they have been antsy ever since I opened the can
By the way, Finnegan has lost over 10 lbs! I had him weighed yesterday and he's down to 45 lbs. I knew I was feeling a rib the other day! Way to go Finker! We're going to have to call him Slim instead of Mr. Beef now...
Hi Kimmie, Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye, but I'm hoping you'll be back soon! You are such a delight... wish we all lived closer. It was really insane today, it got up to 80 degrees here.. very unusual for the coast. From the pictures on the news, I think you better start building an ark... wow, that rain storm was scary. So many people trapped in their cars. May not have been near you, but I was still concerned for you.
