Sweet Orange

My humble offering here for Erin's color challenge. Orange is my color although I think I may have veered a bit from the citrus pallet she chose for me. Actually these earrings are the first that I made, and the only piece I finished. There are felted components unembellished and more crocheted medallions unassembled. And a few ideas still swirling around in my head. Which I think was part of the point of the challenge anyway. I love orange it seems. For some reason it is never the first color I "go" for. I don't know why. There are a zillion shades, tones and mixes of this marvelous color and yet for some reason when I think of orange I think of Home Depot and pylon cones. Ridiculous. Be sure to check out the other designers blogs to see what wonderful pieces they have made. If you click on the title links they will take you to Jessica's pages featuring her spectacular color pallets. Happy Hopping!!

Best Thanksgiving EVER!!!

Well it's OFFICIAL!! All the legalities are finalized and we are officially parents. The picture is a few weeks old-from Halloween. I made the hair from wool roving which apparently was quite distracting. It's been wwaaayy too long since my last post. Had a little hospital trip. Chest pains, a ride in the ambulance (so embarrassing) a bunch of tests and a Prilosec prescription. Oh well better safe than sorry and if you have to choose a diagnosis........ Wednesday is the 30th and that means Erin's Color Challenge Hop!!!! Click on the link on the right for more info! My color is orange by the way and of course I am NOT done!!!! We had a lovely trip to New Jersey for the Holiday. Went way to fast. The weather was gorgeous. I love sunny cool fall days. I did not pig out and felt marvelous! Babes did good in the van. But both are getting all top front teeth in and are a little uncomfortable. I do not know a good way to close this post and I need to go. Have a great day!!!
