Cabbage-fest has officially begun! We cut into our Dutch Flathead this week. Made the (Emeril) side dish – which I didn’t love, along with a huge pot of Smoked Sausage & Cabbage Soup – modified for my allergies … Which I do love! We have enough whole frozen leaves AND a batch of chopped cabbage for two more meals (the golumkis and another [modified] soup recipe)! All from a $5 head of produce. Thank you Farmer’s Market!
DH (my paint expert) and I continue to play with more durable finishes for my cuff bracelets. I’m just not thrilled with the wear my test piece shows after a few days. I will admit, I’m not so gentle on my jewelry, but I still expect it to shine longer than our first sealer … [2nd sealer – wax – was an immediate no-go!] So, here are a couple of photos from ‘take 3’ – with better lighting. I’m waiting for another product, or two to arrive (plans D & E), but … If all else fails, I have DH talked into sealing them with automotive clear! [DOH! “Nothing’s gonna get through that sucker!”]
I finally have a kiln load running. Just a quick tray of penDots and cabs. But I’m experimenting with a bit of Mica and enamels … We’ll see. And, I’ve hooked up my replacement desktop plotter (my old Sizzix died, and I like their software – very easy to customize images) … So pretty, and ready for another No Days cutting session! All while I patiently wait for some overseas mail to arrive … I love morning glories!
I’ll leave with an early ‘Happy Birthday wish’ … our oldest son turns 22 this week! Birthday Hugs to you, my boy!
