On top of all the many day to day things we do each day.  There are many unexpected things that have popped up lately.  Rory's father passed away.  It was, in my opinion unexpected.  I was very shocked.  I know Rory was very taken back by the whole thing.  We tried desperately to make it to his hometown before he passed.  We didn't get there in time.  I know the was very hard for him.  Now we are having issues with My father.  I love that man but don't know what to make of this whole Parkinson's disease and how he is acting.  It has been such a nightmare for my mom and sister.  I wish I was there to help.  

Pray for my family and Happy Crafting to you all.

TGIF!!!!!! So glad it is Friday.  I am exhausted.  I need a break.  I have so many personal things I want to get done and I feel like I will never get it done.  Last weekend I just didn't get ANY thing done.  We had a great time and ate like we were nuts but nothing got done.  SO, this weekend I am catching up.  I need to work on my Crochet bag and I need to finish the Purple and Black Ply-Slit bag.  At least I have plenty to keep me busy.  So Off to get things done.  Have a great weekend.

So Happy Wednesday June 1st.  I made it this far in the year.  I have been working on my Zen Tangle skills which are not good.  I like drawing but doodle is a skill I guess I never had.  But I do enjoy learning so off to learn something new.   I have been trying to finish my Mochila Bag.  It is SO big as I said before.  I am pretty far along with it.  I will try to update the Picture.  For now Enjoy the day Folks.

Good Monday Morning.
So WOW it has been a year since my last post. Life gets away from you.  I can't believe that. I am sorry for not keeping up. I have been so busy it's crazy.  I am still working on my bag but off and on I have been working on Ply-Split Braiding.  I taught myself how to do this technique and started practicing on small pieces.  All so that I could make a wide piece for the Strap on the new bag that I have been making.  Here is an example of the Ply-Split.


I Really like the challenge of different designs.  There are so many links on Pinterest and the web to choose from for learning.

We also got a new puppy named Koda.

So it is Spring 2015, WOW where did winter go and how did we get to the end of April.  I slept through it all.  I managed to do somethings I love but not many.  I had my cataract surgeries and then had surgery on my right thumb  and that put me way out of crafting.  I managed to slowly start a Tapestry crochet bag with a design I sorta made up.  It started out to be Square at the bottom and now I look at the Bag and it will be HUGE.  I love the colors but I mean HUGE.

 Great Size now but just wait.   I started trying a new technique called Ply slit weaving.  very cool.  I made one item.  I wanted to learn this because that is what they make the handle for the Mochila bags out of and that is what this bag was suppose to be sorta like when completed.  We shall see.

TGIF!!
I am so glad it is Friday.  This has been a busy week at work and at home as well.  Crime never stops at the Sheriff's Office but last weekend was BAD.  So that leads to alot of paperwork for me.  I guess I shouldn't complain because it went fast but really it could have had less issues.  I did manage to finish some bead projects. I have been working with Doughnut beads to create necklaces.  Love it.  I will post pictures so you can see. I spent my time searching to ideas on Pinterest when I have a block.

My parent's are having issues.  Mom has been sick because Dad is sick. Both were again in the hospital last week.  UGH.  I get stressed because I can't do anything and then My Lupus acts up.  Vicious Cycle.  We all need to take better care of ourselves.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Not much to report

As time goes by thing change but not all things.  I continue to work on beaded things and continue to crochet which I always go back to. I love to combine the two and make bead crochet pieces.  I have recently been working on flat bead crochet pieces. In other words not tubular.  I will post pictures.  I don't have any with me at the moment. Here is a Pinterest link to some of the patterns and pictures...http://www.pinterest.com/craftpatterns/bead-crochet-patterns-books-e-books/
I had always wanted to learn this and as of this year I did it.
