I have had one heck of a week, but things are only going to get better from now on. Molly came home from the hospital, still a long way to recovery but she will get better quicker at home I know. Still - super scary - I am not a doctor nor a nurse, so this is all a huge learning curve for us - sleepless nights and wondering if whatever we do hurts her more. She is tough and so very positive though, she makes things easy and is such a joy.
I've fallen in love with viking knit jewelery and found it was something I could do with a sick child and it didn't require a lot of attention to detail. I also tried my hand at resin casting and the first batch of cabs was (I thought) a big success. I watched an on line tutorial (sorry can't remember by who) and made the ones I have used in Fire and Ice. It was a bit messy but I will definitely be doing this again. I can slip this pendant off the viking knit rope, wear the rope plain or put on a different pendant - so cool!
Tori was also from an online inspirational picture on viking knitting. I purchased the pink stone in Victoria at my favorite store- Aurea, I think it is dyed agate but not sure, I just knew I loved it and had to have it. The pink wire viking knit chain was made on the long drive home (14 hours) - it really passed the time away nicely. Also new for me was the wire coiling.....love love love it.
