One Stone

I have a busy evening, but I got some new drill bits in the mail and I had to run out to my bench and try one....not good. I had nearly finished this one when I broke my last old bit. It pretty much took an entire new bit to finish it. The stones are beautiful but apparently a little too hard to drill. I am more than a little disappointed.

Stone Necklace

I found such a lovely smooth stone, I just had to make a necklace. I haven't made one of these in a long time.

Etsy Shop Listings

I just spent almost three hours listing new earrings in my Etsy shop...OneSeedyRoom. Please feel free to check it out. Now, I need to get away from computer screens for a little while!

Earrings with Buttons and Tiny Toys

It will be a sad day when I use the last of these little tin toys. I was afraid, when I got them, that they would look too "charm bracelet-y", but I am loving how they look mixed with the old buttons and a little bit of hardware.

Bean Freaks

After reading the article Bean Freaks in the New Yorker, I had to order heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo. They arrived so beautifully packed that I had trouble throwing the box into the recycling bin. I can't stop admiring them. But I have managed to open the package of cranberry beans and am currently soaking some to cook, and then add to a pico de gallo. 

So there are two cooking firsts here...I have never made a pico de gallo (I've chopped stuff but never formally titled it.) and I have never cooked with dried beans (split peas yes, dried beans, no).

Wish me luck!

Thursday Night Earrings

Excited to come home from work with no plans at all..a free evening. But I couldn't settle in to my night of loafing until I made something. So I made some earrings.
