Talk about your inspiration! Late last week T posted several of her "objet d'artes" and of course, being the copy cat that I am, had to try it! Wren is complete but for seams and some sort of collar action that I haven't quite yet decided upon...but she needed a closure and Ms. T gave the perfect solution. Since I'd promised Grandma Clara an outing on Saturday, my self-serving self said "self, here we have an opportunity to go to the big box crafty store and kill two birds with one stone as it were". So we did. Grandma Clara got new Peaches N Cream in about 50 different colors for her dish towels and wash cloths she's been crotcheting. An I purchased some 16gauge wire and big glass beads. Once home I confiscated an old pizza pan, a hammer, and dug out my jewelry making pliers/wire cutters/etc. Fixed a big glass of raspberry lemonade and sat out on the concrete sidewalk playing for a little while. This is what I came up with (shown on a folded piece of Wren).
The fam came out intermittently to ask "what are you doing" to which I replied "playing". Later, they oohed and aaahhed, but what really cracked me up was when DH & DD said, "wow, we don't usually think of you as the crafty type"....WTF? I knit, sew, quilt, embroider,crochet, paint crap, make earrings/jewelry......who...me...crafty? Sheesh.
