How can it be that I have my summers "off" of work, and I still feel so busy that I can't get around to blogging? I suppose it is because I've been designing the "Byways Bolo" pattern and making oodles of jewelry and packing kits for the Midwest Fiber and Folk Festival. I'm also teaching one summer school class. The class is not a lot of work for me, but it's taking up much more of my days than I had planned. (1/2 hour commute each way, minimal 1/2 hour prep, plus 1 and 1/2 teaching = 3 hours/day) Then there is my grad school class. Reading, homework, group meetings. Sigh! So here I am procrastinating from doing any and all of the above by blogging.
Here is my bolo design. It has been so much fun to make different colors and different style cords. The flower is wire crochet and I've made both crochet and knitted style cords. This is definitely the most fun to make of all my jewelry patterns.
