Wire Wrapped Pendants


Knit and Crochet

Busy but good

Saturday, March 14, 2009

Today was one of those busy but not days. It's hard to explain. First, I didn't get up this morning until 8:00 which was absolutely amazing. I am finally starting to REALLY feel back to my normal self and sleeping in was just like icing on the cake. Of course sleeping in made me feel a bit rushed because my class at the knit store started at 10:00 when she opened and we still had to get up, get dressed, feed and clothe the little one and go grocery shopping. Luckily it only takes me about 15 minutes to get to the shop so I finished everything with just enough time to get there.

The class went great. I was expecting 3 people and there ended up being 5. Three of them were excellent and caught on very quickly. All I had to do was answer a couple questions from them here and there or straighten out some problems but for the most part they were totally self sufficient. The other two were still fairly new knitters but they were getting it so I felt it was one of my better classes.

Came home from my class and took some new pictures of most of my pendants. I'm trying to get a more uniform look for my photographs on etsy. The best pictures tend to come from this one background I use which is a rectangular tray that looks like bamboo. I still have a few to retake but for the most part I'm happy with how it's going so far. I also listed my moonstone pendant that I posted about yesterday. Originally it was to be named Dawn but I changed my mind at the last minute and felt Awakening was a better name for it.

Lastly, I finally finished my larimar piece that has been unfinished for almost a week. It will be named Falling because of the wire design sort of falling down the side. Here's a quick pic of it. I'm not sure when I'll get around to posting it on etsy. Maybe tomorrow.
Speaking of larimar stones I sold one of my other ones last Friday, and got a wonderful e-mail from the recipient of how much they love it. That, I think, is what makes it all worth it for me, just to know that it made someone that happy when they received it.
