Scraps Into Bracelets

I finished the tape roll bracelet and I almost finished the bracelet I made with Washi tape and a plastic scarf display ring. 

I can't believe it took me so long to discover Washi tape...and I thought I had one more scarf ring coming but my aunt said no. She returned the second scarf for a refund, so no second ring. and no second bracelet.

Temperatures were supposed to be a bit higher this weekend but It was still pretty cold on the garage.  I had to make feels like it's been forever. I told myself just a quick pair of earrings, but I made a necklace instead.  Now, I am thawing my frozen fingers.

Another Skull

 This post was from 12/23/17 but I neglected to click "publish".  Apologies!

Today, I made my first cheesecake. Well,  actually, I made 36 itty bitty cheesecakes. They've been topped with strawberry blood orange marmalade and a thin slice of almond and put away for Christmas Eve. After that, I relaxed to finish a skull and watch a movie.

The Christmas Benders

My thoughtful nephew who keeps me supplied with odd scraps and copper tubing gifted to me a wee (1/8" O.D.) tube bender for Christmas. I couldn't wait to try them but with the temperature hovering around the 0ยบ mark, it it mighty cold in the garage. I did bring some scraps into the house to try out the benders.

Skull Work

After a day of last minute shopping and grocery lists and the gym, I finally got to sit down and stitch.
