Finding New Things

Hi all, well here I am at last. so much goes on here and I have my fingers in so many "pies" I just can't seem to do as I promised myself and get here at least once a week. I think it is the same for a lot of bloggers, as we are such driven people. I have just bought a new Computer too, as my other one gave out, and there has been the usual teethings with it ,but I'm on the way now with a beautiful new Toshiba, wow I am lucky .!!
 I have found Kumihimo Braiding and am having a go at that. when I get my mind set on something, I have to go all the way and get to the really "nitty gritty of it all" so that is taking up my time and of course had to show my Sewing friends when we have our Sewing day group.
 We can see so many possibilities with it andI have seen some great braids , so just Google , Kumihimi and you will find yourself in a new world, if you havent already taken this up. Maybe I am years behind, but thank goodness I am still HERE and can still learn, and find new things all the time.
 Of course that is not all, I have also as I said in an earlier  blog, Chain Maille, well it is so georgeous that I want to do it too , and have 4 ladies with me doing that. Of course, here again I am a babe in the woods and am learning as I go, but have started to come right with it and some nice things ae coming from that.
 That's not all, of course as I still have my Poly clay , and til April was teaching that. we now have that down to once a month and have some lovely gals doing that.
  Here in my city we have just had our Agricultural show, where we have an Art and Cratf show. I put some articles in and got a second prise for my Polmer clay efforts. I was so pleased as at least Poly clay was recognised. I plan to do more next year. there are buttons abd ear rings and pendants, and a bit of  fun dolly things.

 This week with Cindy Lietz the tutorial is Sculptured Ranunculus flowers.  and there is a preview that can be seen here.Can't wait for this one.
I also found this lady and her blog is so interesting.
 go there.
 Of course there is also my foray out to the Gem fields with a friend who lives in a place called "Sapphire" where there are really still Sapphires in the ground.
 So here is a pic of my shovelling a bucket of dirt, from which I hoped to seive thru and find my fortune. LOL
 P.S. I did find the minutist pieces of uncut black looking saphhires,so I was really happy.
 Well all,thanks for reading my blog.
 Hope to be here again soon. Think I have done wonders today, now back to all those things that take up the space in my mind. Mmm , a thought , wonder if my mind is really big enough to have all those things playing around in there. LOL!!
 Bye, love to all,
 and have the greatest day, as it is the only one you have and then it is gone,
as it will be a new tomorrow.

Hi all,
well here I am again within a week, amazing. I  am trying to be here now at least once a week. See how I go!
 Have found a new craze, altho still interested and doing Poly clay

So here it is, my first Chain Maille bracelet.
 not good yet at photographing  as have a new camera and have to learn a few new things about it.Hence the bright light where it's not meant to be!
 Dont you just hate when you get something new gadget wise, there is always something different than what you have been used to.
 also when last I was here I did want to put my latest Scrap clay bracelet in too.If you click on the pic you will see the flowers alternated on the tiles.
 It is in my Picasa, but hope this is easier to see. also have a back view of it,
This just amazed me how it came out, just being my scrap clay, as in ALICE STROPPEL
OK now I must go, ,but thinking of all my blogger friends and feeling close to you.
Have a great day and be kind to yourself.
 Love to you all
 Elizabeth .

Hi All,!!!
well here I am at last, bet you thought I had gone to another planet, or at least got lost to Blogging, as it is just over a year since I have been here.Just amazing, how could I do that?
 No, just found other things to do, and as everyone who blogs knows,
 there is never enough time in a day for all the things we want to do.
 I have done so much over the last year, like everyone I guess, and of course have been computing, but just never seem to get down to the
" nitty gritty "of it, altho have always had fun ,lurking on other blogs.
 I have kept up with the  tutorials from  Cindy Lietz
Now I am here tonight especially to put my latest pictures of a Bracelet I have just made.
 It is ala Alice Stroppel
 It is my take on her Scrap Clay tutorial.
 You may be able to find it in my Picasa, Click on the Picasa image in the right hand column,and then on My Photos.
 Look at the Scrap clay Bracelet 2 pictures, for June 2012.
 Must away now, but hope to be back soon.
 Have a lovely day where you are, and remember,
Things are never as bad as they seem
and there is always a Silver lining, even tho
 you may not see it at first 

 Love and Best wishes to all
 Love you
