Since our independence provides us with the freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, I decided to spend my day pursuing happiness. I sat on the deck and spun three quarters of a bobbin this morning until it got too warm and I had to go inside. Yesterday before I left for work I had finished two more skeins of yarn so went upstairs to add them to the existing warp.
I only have 5 1/2 inches left, which is 66 ends. I think I would have enough white to finish warping but I ran out of brown. However, since I'm spinning white right now, I guess I won't be working with the loom for a few days. I'm trying to get into the habit of going into my studio every day.
To that end, I stopped at the bead store after my haircut on Friday and picked up these beauties. I especially love the African skunk beads on the bottom left. I'm trying to sit at my beading table when I can't work on my loom. I've gotten into the habit of not going to my studio and I'm trying to change that.
To my great surprise, the habit thing is working. I was compelled to sit down the other day at my table and ended up with these earrings. The bottom three were reincarnations of other earrings that I had always meant to do something with but just hadn't gotten around to. I can't tell you exactly how long they've been in a suspended state, but I do know that all of the components date back to before I met Ian thirteen years ago. I'm liking my new habit.
