It's Cold out - stay in and create

The weather here has been very odd, freezing, 60's, snowing - so my desire to go out is nill. I've been working on jewelry pretty non stop lately. So I thought today I'd do some sewing! Oh my word I'm making little pot holders that are quilted. Don't be shocked. I've not given it up. Just have to get going on the new stuff for 2018. It's time for new designs and new techniques. 
So here are a few of the recent designs. 
I've been playing with smooth river stones and wrapping them in silk. Adding beads, wire and other bits of fiber. 
This one has several layers of silk hand dyed ribbon two hole and single hole beads and some wire wrapping on a leather cord. 
I've had this crinoid stem fossil for years and the other day when I looked at it I decided it's time had come. I added some of my favorite beads.  This was a plant at one time living in the ocean, just think.

So now it's time to plan and start on what 2018 will bring. I don't make new years resolutions, but there is a new phrase I will use this year Think it Through. 

During the time since Bobby's death I have moved threw a wide range of emotions but one that has been constant is not really thinking ahead. At first it seemed unnecessary to plan for the future, it was too overwhelming to even think of tomorrow. The next year wasn't even on my mind. This year it will be 4 years, it hardly seems like it. I still cry, I still miss him and I am lonely, but at least now I've started to see a little beyond the next month. I can see the year and there are things I want to do. Things I look forward to doing. It's a long journey but I've had help and took my time going threw those first years. I've settled into my new home. Figured out my way around my new town. Met new people. Go to a wonderful new Church and have my sister and her wonderful family just 15 min away.
