No posts for a long time because somehow summer doesn't seem the time to be sitting at the computer. With the garden, sunshine and just the wonderfulness of being outside, who wants to write or even read a blah, blah, blog. Now the rains are upon us and the holiday festivals are beginning so here I am writing again. Also, I went to a baptism for my great niece a couple of weekends ago and my sister commented that she checked my blog and I had not been writing anything. So here I go again.
The summer festival season was really a downer this year. Seems like after buying food no one had any money to spend on jewelry. The Scandia Festival in Junction City was bloody hot and I am giving up on that fair. On the upside, I decided to take my basket weaving skills and try my hand at wire weaving. There is a really good website http://www.gailavira.com/tutorials/ that has free wire weaving tutorials. I practiced the basic weaves and made a number of bracelets to sell. I also bought a few of her tutorials through her Etsy shop and was busy each night madly wrapping wire. The instructions of the tutorials are wonderful and I highly recommend this site if you want to expand your skills.
