Where does the time go!

Time does fly! I hadn't realized how much time has gone by since my last posting although, I do make blog rounds and have seen some wonderful work by all. that always gives a boost to my inspiration. I've mostly had my head buried in my work. I finally noticed some flowering in the communal garden and decide to take a little break and share the color.

Hot does not begin to describe the weather down here now. But at least no storms so far.

One of the projects I've been working on is one some of you might remember, the "rattle" or "maraca" mobile. The show dates are getting closer and I needed to wrap it up. It had to be able to break down, for travel and design wise it had to not distract from the pieces it would display.

It's encrusted with carnival glass rhinestones for a little sparkle.

I think those requirements were met and I like the way it turned out. I suppose when not on the road I could use it as a cupcake or cookie stand for a party, Humm? yet another venue, my plate is already too full.

Finally a quick peek at another piece I've almost finished. The scarredy cat, the JOL its actually a miniature luminaria, it's quite fun when she's all lit up.

Unfortunately I'm scheduled for yet another foot surgery next week so I'm even more frantic trying get as much done as possible before my mobility is affected so it's back to work again for me.

oops! William can't believe it's been wrong all this time. I'm a notorious misspeller, fixed now. Can I still come to your party?
