Every Day Brings Something New
My mind is racing, really. It is like I have opened the door to a closet that has been filling up for ages and it all just keeps spilling out. There is so much I want to do and try but it really feels like there is never enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to. I can't seem to keep up with myself. Last weekend I sat down and read the users manual to the sewing machine and tried everything I could and even made a cushion cover (really kind of ugly since I just used fabric that I had lying around, but learned a lot.) And then I picked up a book on knitting and taught myself to knit (result: a mis-shaped hat.) But I am getting better and hope to soon have my first home-made scarf, yippee! I'm also trying to focus back into jewelry, since that is my first planned venture. I really need to get some actual jewelry supplies and tools so I can learn to work with them as well as see what a finished project can really look like. Today's pics are of a few things I put together, but need to be redone in the right material. I think they are fun, yet still a work in progress to find something unique and truly beautiful... the journey continues.
