I had to get up at 3 AM last night with the dogs which is VERY unusual. I think that stuff we put on them for ticks might cause digestion issues. I HATE having to put it on them, but it has to be better than the nasty ticks. We had torrential rains this Spring here in Southern OK. I thought at the time that it would be a GOOD thing because all the little bugs on the ground and in the grass and in the trees would surely drown.
I found out that every bug known to man seems to THRIVE in a flood and have a huge family while immersed! This is the first year we have had ticks on our dogs.
Anyway, after waking up at 3, I could not get back to sleep. Hence, when it was time to get up for early church this morning, I decided to roll over and try to sleep. Still couldn't. Crazy!
After church I started work on a new jewelry project. One of my readers said she would like to see a video of me making jewelry. Since the camera was right next to me, and this was an unusual project, I decided to film a jewelry video for you. I also show you my brand new magnifier light that I HIGHLY recommend for any kind of close-up work.
I have to start all over on it because I ASSUMED I knew what I was doing by the picture of the piece, but I missed some very important instructions. Also, I needed SEVEN of the square crystal beads and I only have five.
Terry came over and finished the MOST AMAZING quilt I think I've ever seen. Really. I was not the least bit interested in a Bargello style quilt. I thought they were strange and boring UNTIL I saw Terry's. I love it so much, I might try to make one. I'm afraid I won't pick the colors right though, because I thought the colors she picked were going to look like a bowl of soup with a bunch of weird colored worms in it. BOY!, was I wrong! That makes me think I would be really bad at choosing colors.
I made a video of Terry's quilt as she removed it from the longarm. I haven't had time to edit it or upload it yet, so maybe tomorrow. Even Jerry was impressed with the Bargello, and he never has cared for any of my pieced quilts.
Gotta go. Not much sleep last night, and my body is telling me "OUT with the lights!"
