Ever have that feeling some higher power is trying to tell you something?!?!? Ok, so this is how I'm doing so far . . . . it's 6:30 am, I'm dying to see how my newest bead efforts have turned out (new to me, but folks have been doing these for some time now) I figure I can just put a hoodie over my granny flannel nities, no one will see me, right?
Dash across the yard to the studio grab my stash from the kiln and dash back into the house, only to remember it's garbage day and, YES, the truck is in front of my house . . . with a long line of cars behind it. Oh "Hello neighbors" so much for stealth!!!!
Pickle and straighten all the copper wires, and place into tumbler. After plenty of time tumbling I look for the strainer designated strictly to the stainless steel schot, I see it on the counter and it takes my feeble brain a minute to register what I'm seeing . . . . yep, they've been tumbling for half an hour without the schot!!! Ok, no biggie just a good thing no one knows about it. Add the schot and re-tumble . . . . . viola!!!
Bust out laughing, and get ready to use nylon tools to straighten . . . . no worries.
As I finish the center hole bail/bead headpin creation and was taking it into the the other room to take a picture, me in all my butterfingered glory catch it on the lip of the desk it goes flying out of my hands across the room and breaks (heavy sigh) I realize now I'll never be able to sell it so I prepare it for my "special" collection. Get out the 2 part epoxy and glue the leg back on it, now I normally do a bang up job gluing things back together, to the point that most people can't even tell . . . . you guessed it, not this time!!!!! As I said it's only Monday . . . . .
On that note folks, have a better week than my Monday morning. Does this count as being done for the week now only good things happen?????
