I've been off blog for several days. My dear brother, Patrick, is here from Texas and I've been spending a lot of time with him.
I did manage to finish my "Eeek" block. Would you believe I had planned to make a bunch of these for Halloween to sell in my consignment shop? I guess I should have started back in January. Those are tiny little seed beeds and I glued each one on that block of wood (there are a couple of rhinestones on there as well). You can get a better look at it if you click on the photo and enlarge it. It seems crazy, but when I took the time to work on this, I found it to be relaxing and rewarding. Unfortunately, there will be no more "Eeek" blocks ~ no time. I plan to make a run to Ohio on a buying trip for a few items for the Holidays. I think I better start preparing for Halloween 2011 as soon as January gets here!!
We finally got our much needed rain. It has been raining non-stop for 24 hours now ~ a nice gentle rain that is making every living thing happy and green! The temperature dropped some, too, and that has made me very very happy.
