Water Nymph and Mermaids Dowry - Beautiful Trinkets and Treasures
In my next life................?
Wow!! It has been far too long since my last post. Life has been busy and brought many changes since September. I am currently adjusting to life as a displaced worker after recently being laid off my job. It is a strange feeling to say the least. I have been working for nearly 30 years and I am trying to figure out how all those years slipped by? One good look at my kids and in the mirror tells me that sadly, they certainly have.
Next week, I will get rid of five years of accumulation, clean out my office and shut the proverbial door. There will be no call backs.
So, on to the next chapter...........................................................
I am going to throw myself into ramping up my online shops, creating more art and jewelry and of course trying to find a new job. Maybe I will be blessed and find out I can get by on my own ingenuity (if the new government doesn't undermine my efforts). I guess now would be the time to find out. Who knows, with a little luck, and a lot of effort, it could be blessing in disguise??
I have spent the cold winter working with fabulous yarns and fibers and crocheting up a storm. There is something comforting about working with big fluffy fibers and yarns on cold winter day. I think we all have scarves, wristlets and neck warmers for every day of the month. My most recent creation was a gorgeous long wrap shawl made with a mix of mohair, baby alpaca and eyelash yarns. Yummy colors and super soft and snugly. Oh - I made my first full sweater too :) My Mother would be proud. It is actually wearable! A thick chunky wool Chalet sweater, I actually surprised myself. I was sure it would end up mishaped, one arm longer that the other etc....
This is only relevant because I have not crocheted since I was about 9 and my Mom is no longer around to help me out. I think she must have been sitting on my shoulder - lol :)
I hope to begin blogging on a somewhat regular basis again so if anybody stops by, please send a shout out :)
