When I was embroidering my garden gloves my fingers were starting to suffer. I put on the right glove to finish the left otherwise it never would have been finished. The thin but sturdy leather allowed me to push the needle through the heavy drill fabric that was meant to protect you from thorns and it gave all my fingers gripping power. I have tried adhesive thimbles for quilting as I hate traditional thimbles, but only the glove seems to be comfortable and works.

I decided to redo it with gold studs and black as the base color. I also used a gold and copper glitter polish I picked up yesterday.


My son made the shell casing in class this week.

I looked at ordering gears to glue, I just never got around to it.

I tried to do a steampunk mani today. I like the grommeted copper plating nails and the snowflake stamp made decent gears, but the tentacles were disapointing. I originally did them in gold but they did not show up on the bronze well and I tried to outline. They would look better as black shadows.

Brief Description:Proverb- "Children should be seen and not heard." I wanted to do this project so I could get my headphones back. I found this set on clearance and I really liked the wood finish, I had considered trying to do a steampunk look. While talking to the boy, it was his birthday when I picked them up, I suggested leaves and he agreed. I crocheted over the cord and added a few small leaves, I thought more would tangle easily.

I decided it needed a little more, so I painted grow on both sides.

Project Geekdom (if any): none
Bonus Points:
Project Name:Drink dispensers with chalkboard labels
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:My favorite book growing up were the Little House on the Prairy series. These drink dispensers remind me of two scenes. The first was their first week of school and they only had one slate pencil that broke. Laura, like most kids who hate broken crayons, did not like using a broken slate pencil. She steals one someone left behind and gets in trouble. The second was the state fair or a local town festival where someone made root beer, but you could only get one cup. Saddly, did not have homemade root beer to put in these cups, just tea and punch. you can have as much as you want though.

Project Name:pickled raddish seed pods
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Some of my radishes did not produce nice roots, instead they bolted. I decided to let them go and collect the seed pods, they are kind of spicy. Most recipes used a sweet brine, but I chose to go with a sour version. I don't like sweet pickles. Suggested uses are to use as capers or as coctail garnishes. I also ate the seed pods straight from the garden and plan to saute some.

My son is taking classes for engineering and he made these today. They are working on writing the programs and running the machines.

I decided to try out my new Julep Karen polish today with hand painted accent nails. The idea was to try something tropical and summery, but the colors I kept pulling out clashed with the peach so I went with neutrals.



I have a tendency to take pictures before I clean them up. This one I was playing around with some other new colors. I tried to do a weave effect. This look needs more practice to get right.



This mani was my graduation party planning look. I used tattoos for the numbers and stars with yellow racing stripes underneath.
