Clara is still under the weather, but she is eating some (not nearly as much as I would like her to, though). The vet told me to stop with the ear drops until he can see her on Thursday. I hope she feels better soon!
I've got two things to share today- a necklace I finished last month but finally got around to photographing and listing, and yarn I finished tonight.
First, the necklace; here are three photos because I wanted to include one of the more creatively staged ones, lol.
This "Undine's Familiar" is another of my "Elemental Necklace Series", but this one is a different variation because it's chainmaille instead of hemp. The necklace actually followed the bottle charm; I made that first- it has a tiny clay fish, seaweed, and sanddollar in it (I rarely work that small; it took me far too long to make those little things, lol), and some yellow seed beads for "sand" and a metal star bead. I also painted the inside bottom blue and added some glued glitter to the sides for "water". I'm not sure if I'll make more bottle charms in the future; they're really hard to work with, so I may prefer to buy finished ones. The only downside with that is I can't put in them what my mind wants to, you know? Anyway, the necklace followed the charm, and as my FAE friend Julie pointed out, it looks like mermaid scales. :) I didn't even see that until she pointed it out, but I think she's right!
The necklace is in my Artfire and Etsy shops.
The other thing I wanted to share is the yarn I just finished spinning tonight:
That black glove thing is my arm brace. Yes, I'm prone to injury. ;) (And the background of the first is actually the beach chair where I sit outside most of the day, for more random info.) The pictures totally don't do all these blues justice; I'll get another picture after I skein the yarn up and set the twist and all.
This is thick and thin yarn I spun up on one of my bottom whorl spindles using roving I got from Jazzturtle on Etsy. It's this roving to be exact. As soon as I saw that roving I fell in love with it!
I'm sort of working on a crocheted case for my new camera; "sort of" as in I started the inside part, but haven't wanted to push using my left arm too much since I rely heavily on that one when I crochet. Hopefully I can finish that soon because I want my camera to have a safe spot to sleep (what? It has a name [Blarf]; it should get a personality, too). ;) ...and I just realized that smiley faces look weird when you type with semicolons regularly. Heh. Oh man, and I just remembered that I haven't been working on my "Wreck This Journal", either. I need to do that; maybe I should get one for my best friend so that would make me remember mine more if I saw her use hers.
LOL! And my dad just managed to turn on my tv from his room- my first thought was that the cat or dog had sat on my remote, but I guess the one for dad's tv works on mine from across the hall. Magic! XD
