Spring is Here!

A Carpet of Blue - The Siberian Squill blooms.
Another cell phone picture.

We've waited soooo long. It was a long cold lonely winter. The birds are all happy, the daffodils have begun to bloom and tulips are on the way!

I've been taking a metal smithing and a patina class at the UWM Union's Craft Centre for the past month. It has captured my imagination and most of my creativity and energy. I've learned so much and done so many things that I've always wanted to like enameling and getting over my fear of a torch.

I haven't been beading much lately, but I need to take a break every now and then so I can come back to it refreshed and ready for new things.

Been working on a project with my friends to auction off at the Bead & Button Show to benefit the Medical College of Wisconsin's Breast Cancer research. It is at the point where it's beginning to come together and it looks so good. I'll be so excited to share it with you.

Here's a picture of my friend Sue with her portion of the piece for a tease - it's but one part of the puzzle.

Today's quote comes from our old friend Mark Twain: It's spring fever... You don't quite know what is is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so.
