On the run!

I'm going to this art retreat next week in Key Largo. I'm going to visit my mother first, so I will be flying down tomorrow. You won't hear from me for a little over a week, since I won't have a computer handy (sometimes it is good to step away). What's that you say? I've already been AWOL a week already? Yes, I'm guilty of making little gifts for the other artists at the retreat. I asked a few people for ideas, and got some great ones, but the best ones were from my neighbor, because she has seen me do all kinds of crafts for years, and knew what she would like if I was giving her a gift - one of these wire crochet necklaces.

That is a dozen necklaces, and my scanner bed is probably not the best place to show them off, but there they are. This is what I've been doing all week. I may make more while I'm at my mother's - I have to bring my wire supplies anyway for one of the classes at the retreat, so bringing a few more beads is no big deal. My sister says that some of them are a little short (they all fit around my neck, but some people have bigger necks, I guess), so I should probably have a few longer ones in the mix.

I miss you, and hope to be full of cool things to share when I get back!
