finished the book, on to another
I finished Girl With Pearl Earring -- good book! Spent some time online looking up Vermeer and trying to plan a trip with Zack to DC to a museum, but that will probably not happen until Mom comes to visit in December. I'm going to take a total departure and read Prep. Ordered Wicked and Son of a Witch from Amazon, can't wait for them to arrive.
Spent the majority of the day making jewelry for the next show -- used some stellar carnelian for a necklace and some beautiful smoky quartz and really large cultured pearls, that I was particularly happy with. With any luck I can photograph some tomorrow, at least for posterity -- I still have a lot to make before the show and very little time to do it in.
Also got a box of yarn today in the mail -- haven't had time to open it, but plan to do some knitting in the down time after the show hours over Thanksgiving weekend. Almost all the scarves I made sold last weekend (which surprised me for some reason) and knitting is what I do to calm my mind. I still have to sew together two sweaters I made last year, but THAT part of knitting does NOT calm me!
Anyone out there want to sew it for me? There's free jewelry in it for you.....
