I am busy working on garden stuff. I am enjoying using up things that have been set aside for a very long time. I figure it's actually time to use some of the things I have collected over the years. That means a lot of beads...........I have a lot of beads. I made a wind chime today from beads. I had fun drilling holes in a piece of driftwood. Thought it was going to erupt in flames when it started to smoke. I have a Dremel and just learning how to use it. I can NOT imagine drilling rocks. That was what I bought it for. Anyway, last night I drilled the holes and today I threaded the beads. This is what came out.
So refurbishing things.........I have these wings from a long gone fairy.
I am thinking Butterfly?
I need to figure out what else I can add to it to make it look pretty.
I am not sure if I showed this on my last post but here it is again just in case. A Christmas ornament to replace the one that broke.
So next I went through my box of wood and came up with enough to make another one or maybe two wooden wind chimes.
Gonna be busy with the Dremel again. Some are drilled from last time but one pile is not. I also have a lot of bigger pieces to make the tops so I hope I am on a roll and actually get these done. I have not even started on the stones yet........I finished this one today
That one has a nice sound with the cow bell......and I added a heart crystal to my tea pot
It needs a few more and I do have some so will continue that theme but its too humid out there today. Phew....I am done for today.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
