Twinkle hearts

Quick craft of the month.
I found these glass stars and hearts in the loose bead bin at my favorite beading store.  Unfortunately, I find that beads are as addictive as fabrics.  It's just that you can imagine so many things to do with them but then get home and have limited time and/or ability to execute the thing in the way you imagine.

Spring still


Wow it has been a LONG time since I posted anything.  Too busy.  Spring is here in the western part of the state.  I wish it would stay forever this way.

New hobby

Dinner with the chair of a department in the Pacific Northwest.  Me: how do you get so much done?  Him: I don't watch tv.  I try not to use the internet.  Weekdays are for working.

Me (thinking to myself):  gee.

I picked up a new pasttime, wire-wrapping.  Here is a simple piece I made of sterling silver and jasper.  Twisting the metal is somehow therapeutic.  Please excuse the wife-beater.

The Doors

For those of you who asked about the Door Project, my brother and I have been photographing doors of Old Town Alexandria with the intent to eventually assemble the photos into a poster. So far we've only had time to get together and do this once or twice. It's difficult to get good lighting on the doors and also not cause people to think we are reconnoitering their property. Here are the doors we have so far, retouched...

If I ever finish my doors of Alexandria project (different doors from Old Town) then I would like to commence an alphabet project!

Surprisingly, while taking this photo my allergies did not go beserk as expected
