Finally, I made some additional acorn earrings. This time I used earthy autumn-toned beads and antique gold metallic thread to create multiple loops cascading from the caps. I did not paint the caps, but only gave them a light coat of a lacquer that has just a hint of sparkle.
Tonight, it's time to start a new project. I like to have the television on while I work, but I can only watch things that I know well -- don't have to pay much attention to keep up. Having grown up as the oldest of seven children, working in dead silence is impossible for me. I need the comforting background noise. So which will it be Leave it to Beaver re-runs or Star Trek Next Generation (I own the complete series of each). Very different choices from very different times, I know ... I'll have to ponder on it.
