Miss Ashley Kay came to watch a movie with her Nana this past weekend and of course they, the grand kids, always have to endure their Nana's show and tell.
Well well, when Miss Ashley saw the chunky pink plastic beads in the bead box, she knew immediately that she wanted a piece made with them. She doesn't have any problem expressing what she wants. Loud and clear she said, "Oh Nana, I want one made with these".
That was so perfect because I bought the package not knowing they were plastic. I hoped they were big chunky hunks of glass. I ♥ glass beads.
So, Morning ART this week has be the making of this necklace which she also specified the length of. I decided to use some of my practice "S" links and the hook and eye latch. I love the big hook and eye and I put it on the side so it would show from the front.
I love using my hands to do anything. I get lost creating. Painting faces, collage, mixed media, and altered books are my passions.
Digging in the dirt feeds my soul. Flowers are one of God's greatest creations.
I'm shy although one might not know it. I have too many opinions and can't keep them to myself.
Every now and then, I just need to touch cloth. I use unwanted clothing, cast offs, remnants, unfinished works-in-progress, cloth napkins, table cloths, curtains, and my stash which is pretty extensive.
And then, I sit and stitch. And stitch. Because stitching calms and relaxes me. It quiets the chatter in my head and keeps me upright in the chair zone in the evenings. And that is The Cloth Side Of Me.
