Time on the Torch

I cleaned the studio and needed to sit down and rest often. So I sat at my torch.

Teal on Ivory is endless fun.

Floral beads are new to me but I purchased Dolly's tutorial "Water Color Floral" and now I have the bug.

I try to include line work in every session, cuz J.C. told me to.

Top bead sucked so I made a swirly bead, next line work and dragging and lastly I like to practice dot placement and how fun when it's DH!

Kathleen and I shared a lampwork studio and craft fair table for several years. She recently retired from Government service and bought a home in Albuquerque NM. So we had our last session this week.

We have a great friendship sharing creativity, inspiration and crazy town. I will miss bouncing work ideas around with her. She is wicked smart and so fair and kind tempered with tough love. Her creative side pushed mine and I can't even voice how much I will miss her.

Safe travels fellow Magpie and God's speed always.
