I thought the teacher must be the smartest lady in the whole world and I soaked up everything she said.
I was so excited to LEARN.
I thought I was in Heaven to have pencils and crayons and papers and books and there was CHALK and a BLACKBOARD!!!
I wanted to BE THE TEACHER so much that whenever I was at home, I set up "school" outside on the patio and my siblings and friends were allowed to BORROW a pencil or a crayon to come to my school. I collected them all when "school" was out.
Believe it or not, all my friends wanted to come to my cardboard box school.
What a shame the kids these days don't appreciate what teaching and learning are all about.
I loved it then -- and I still do. I don't have a chalkboard, but I have 2 whiteboards and every color marker made to use on them.
it was Sunday and I wanted to do SOMEthing. Jerry, as I said, was on this computer, so I had to find something else to do besides blogging and emailing and watching jewelry-making videos. Actually, I did get the brilliant idea to REMEMBER that I HAVE a laptop, and I could bring it up here into my sewing room. When I got it up here, I decided to watch some old classes I purchased when I first started making jewelry.
One of them was how to CROCHET WIRE WITH BEADS. Sounds crazy, huh? How can you crochet wire? Actually, I didn't know if I could crochet ANYTHING at this point although I had done a little of it a thousand years ago when I was young.
BESIDES, I had been feeling really guilty lately that I purchased so much wire when I started this hobby, and it was all still neatly wrapped around all the spools just lying in the bottom of the nice box with one big drawer I purchased for it. And not only that! Phylly just gave me ALL of her jewelry-making supplies, and there was LOTS of wire included. I thought, "I better make SOMETHING or have a wire sale on Ebay!"
Are you ready?
It turned out really good -- I think.
The wire is 28-gauge (very thin and fine) Sterling Silver. The beads are just beads from my vast bead supply.
