Nope, that idea didn't work...

I may have already said as much on this blog, but after the beaded book didn't work out, I decided I'd try doing a necklace based on the expression "a stitch in time saves nine." Today I sat down to work on it, and it was one little problem after another, which resulted in a crooked and unattractive pendant. Grr. Hopefully I can pop the old watch face out of the glue, because it's the only one from my package of watch faces that actually has numbers on it.

So after two failed attempts to come up with something appropriate, and the deadline for the November challenge looming, I'm quite frustrated. It's reached the point that -- despite the fact that I am not an evolutionist -- I think I'm going to go WAY back on the ancestral scale and make a primordial ooze bracelet. Ooze about matches my mood right now. And ooze is green. Working in green should make me happy.

And if that doesn't work out, I have to give up on the November challenge altogether! I have too many other deadlines on the horizon. Darn my tendency to bite off more than I can chew.


  1. Nice to know someone else does that. LOL. I've seriously over committed myself this year. I thought not working would make it easier. NOT! I have great faith in you though. I know you will find something to do for the challenge.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Arline!

  3. I think it would be hard to mess up primordial ooze -- after all, it's ooze!

  4. Well, I'd do it in free form RAW, and I'm not very good at free form *anything.* I crave symmetry!
