Needle Felting, Driftwood, and Jewelry

Last night I took a class to learn needle felting. I made this angel
and bought enough wool and fiber to make two Christmas trees. The class was fun except for the band aids that had to be passed out.....those needles are sharper than sharp!

Last week-end my husband and I were in Ohio and he found all this driftwood for me on the beach in Vermilion, Ohio. Does anybody have a good idea what  can do with these??

I am still busy making more jewelry. I have an order for three necklaces.

Making Jewelry

Tucson has some awesome bead shops. I went a little crazy with my sister Paula. We thought we were millionaires the way we bought stuff. So with the small amount of free time I've had this week.....I have been stringing beads!

Tucson...Part Two

My adventurous brother-in-law, Gerry, drove around a " No Trespass" sign to look for wild horses. We were lucky to find them so close to the road.
We had a wonderful dinner at "Wisdom's" and this photo was on the bathroom wall. I kept drinking water all night!

Fun in Tucson......Part One

Spent last week in Tucson with my sister, Paula, and
her husband, Gerry. Jeff and I had a great time visiting them at their new home. Every morning they walked three miles with their dog. We even had time for a craft. It was quite "cool" . You save egg shells and paint them with any kind of craft paint. After they are dry, smash them and use Mod Podge to adhere them to gourds, glass or whatever you like. Then give it another good coat of Mod Podge. Wow, who would have thought about saving egg shells. I will be back with part two of the trip.
