Speaking of snoring... My granddaughter never lost her sense of humor. On her second night in hospital, she was terribly annoyed by dad's snoring and decided to repurpose the hand grenade sized stuffed dog her uncle had given her. Although she was stitched and drugged, her aim never suffered as she pinged dad from across the room with her new toy. He would wake with a jolt and she'd doze off until he disturbed her again. She has since named the little puppy, "Ammo". :) Kids are awesome!
With my little princess on the mend, my muse has been relieved and rewarding me. I got some cabbing done, which demanded more attention than I previously had and I got some more wrapping done. My cabbing was most rewarding though. I went through my stash of cabs and pulled out some that had always bugged or disappointed me in some way. I recut and repolished a slew of them and was quite proud of myself for it. Unfortunately, I didn't get before and after pictures, which is a shame because they are quite improved. I did, however, cut 3 new stones.
|Verde Antique Serpentine|
|Um... I don't know the name- some jasper from Australia?|
Here are two pieces that I finished, as well.
|Peridot with bronze webbing|
|Tribal Royal Sahara Jasper|
I want to thank everyone for the emails, messages, comments and positive vibes concerning my grand daughter. :)
