Break is winding down, Mister and I have been busy. Mister is getting ready to take on teaching two upper level math courses at a new to him university. I know he'll do great and I'm over the moon for him.
I've been working on playing computer games, knitting, spinning Allistar's fleece for a sweater and doing a lot of cooking. I feel relaxed and ready to dive back into school.
I have also completed a commission for a client. I was asked to restring and knot a pearl necklace. I had to make an emergency dash to the supply shop for silk cord. I was chatting with the sales woman and she called knotting pearls a lost art. I smiled and told her I was really into a lot of lost arts. Knotting beads is one of my favorite things to do and I hope to get more of it up into my Etsy shop. I have some ideas kicking around. I finished my client's necklace and here is the result. I love the way fresh silk wakes up a necklace! I hope my client will like it.
For the remainder of break, I'm planning on warping my loom again, keep on spinning away and maybe finishing my socks that I'm re-knitting. I also started a new book recently, and maybe I'll spend on day this weekend doing nothing but reading. Hmm, decisions decisions. Have a great weekend everyone!
