Trout it Out!

Hey everyone, hope this finds you well.  I want to thank everyone for stopping by and leaving comments. You are all AWESOME!

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Trout.  A fish in an inch is not easy, but after researching trout I realized that there is a Rainbow Trout!  So that was what I did.

I used silver lined Delicas to give it the look of the scales of a rainbow trout.  That is it for me this week as I am getting ready to go on a short vacation with my son and his dog. Have a blessed and creative week my friends and don't forget to fly on over to EIM to check out all the great artwork.

A Starfish On Time...Er...In Time.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I am sending out prayers for all of the people who have been affected by hurricane Irma.  I have family in Florida and I am glad that they are all safe.

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Starfish.  So to go along with last week's theme of Crab, where I did Mr. Krabs this week I just had to do Patrick Star.  He is so clueless and loveable.

This is what he looks like for those who don't know, and here is my very loose interpretation of him.

I think it sorta looks like him.  But not to much, lol.

That is it for me this week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great works over there!  Have a blessed and creative week.

2 Weeks is Becoming a Habit!

Hey everyone!  I hope this finds you all well.  First off I want to say that everyone who has been in the path of Harvey is and has been in my prayers.  God bless those who have been affected.

Last week I was not able to post as our internet was being a bratty little child, so I am glad that I was able to post this week.

Starting from last week, the theme over at Every Inchie Monday was Squid.  I thought about doing Squidward from Sponge Bob but I just couldn't get him to fit on an inchie.  So what I did come up with was a silhouette of a squid.  Hope you like it.

 Kinda cool that it was right after Seagull so it is setting under the lighthouse!  I love the squiggly lines on my squid!

Now, this weeks theme is Crab, after thinking about doing Squidward for the week before I decided to go with Mr. Krabs.  I like how he turned out.  LOL  If I could have figured out how to put money in his claws I would have!

Also this week I finished a necklace in the Ogalala stitch, this was the first time I ever did the stitch.  I messed it up a few times but you can't tell that so I am ok with it.  The cool thing about this netting typse stitch is that as you progress on the stitch it naturally curls!  I love that its so lacy!  I used green and purple 11/0 seed beads on the necklace.  I also made it long enough that it did not need a clasp.

Thanks to Marissa, my daughter-from-another-Mother, for modeling the necklace for me.

The necklace is long enough that it can be worn as a bracelet as well. Thanks to my daughter for modeling this one.

Thanks for stopping by the nest!  Please continue praying for the Gulf Coast as they are onto the clean up.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and see all the great artwork over there!   Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
