I've almost lost my jewelry muse...

I think she must be hiding. Every once in a while- I catch a glimpse- and can make something stunning. I've been forcing myself to do a little- but mostly I end up starring at my supplies.

So, I've pulled out my yarn, and I've been working on the afghan again. I've been working on this for over two years- but only when the mood strikes me. So it's not even the size of a baby blanket, yet.

*But* this past weekend my parents were visiting to see the grandkids, and Mom & I went to my local yarn store. One of teh girls there had made a fab afghan & gave me the pattern. I bought (um- Mom bought) the new hook I needed & a few skeins of yummy wool (I want felt scuffs!) and the yarn she needed for the bag she is knitting. We sat out back and stitched away the afternoon. It was nice. When we went inside, we watched some NCAA Basketball & kept right on working. I got more done on that afghan in a few hours than I had in the past YEAR. Oh the joys! I've even gotten a few rows done since she left. I hope my muse has just temporarily changed mediums, because I've just made two BIG jewelry supply orders! eep!

I've not had the camera out lately, so just pretend you can see the fruit of my labor! I guess I just needed someone to sit with to get me back into yarn-- now if I could get my niece over to help me get some jewelry inspiration!
