Lots of miles walking rocky desert trails searching for those elusive Desert Bighorns, who continue to elude us... Miles on the Raider, splittin' the wind...
... and lots of time for me sitting at my lil' machine here, stringin' words together.
The end result is that by the time spring comes 'round I'm rarin' and itchy to roll! ;)
While I string my words between "Episodes" of... uh ... Being me... Heidi's been spending her time with her Art... She takes pearls, glass beads, Swarovski Crystals, semi-precious cabochons and other precious bits and using what they call Bead Embroidery shapes all those pieces into Fine Art Jewelry for those a mite more fashionable than this Ol' Twister.

This is the latest piece coming along...
Her art fits into our rig and our ways pretty well... and you'll not see much better any where! ;) She's created quite a few nice pieces in the past few months... and has been having discussions with a few stores 'round the west 'bout Teaching Bead Embroidery next summer... Ah the life of an Artist in Demand huh? :)

We call this black piece the "Harley Bracelet" ... :) Can you guess why?

This Copper one, she used a Montana Agate for the Centerpiece... It's a pretty thing ain't it?

I'm not one for wearin' much jewelry myself... uh ... I don't look real good in bracelets... and I get the WRONG response anyhoo... ;) but the Gals who wear such pieces look awful fine!
I really need to get that Gallery built for her Art Jewelry that I promised her... ah.... one more thing on my list of work to get done... and uh oh... another tangent! ;)

I'm trying to get caught up enough on My Word Art ;) to pull out my tools and shape myself a Tooled Leather Cover for my Kindle... something with a reading light, a pretzel bowl and a beer cooler sounds about right... don't it?
Have to hook up and drag over to the county park in Bouse today... the tanks are full and need some relief. So, if I'm to get those chores done... I best move along.
