Beached! More Adventures and Misadventures of a Reforming Compulsive Blogger.
Busy day. A few fish, a few fisherman and a few pelicans returned to a beach that has been empty of all of them for the past few days. New neighbors moved in upstairs–Pat and Nancy, reformed English teachers from Michigan. A bit of beach combing, then talked to Angie, local beach jewelry vendor, who is going to macrame some sample bracelet cords for me to see if they’d work better than the wire and wax-linen wrapped button bracelets I’ve been making. Once Angie left, Candace came with sewing machine to make some cloth prototypes for bracelets. We tinkered all afternoon and think we’ve come up with a design. I’ll sew on buttons tonight to see how they work but for now I’m going for a beach dinner up the beach and then to either a storytelling or salsa dancing…Undecided at this point. All those buttons so neatly sorted on the table above were mixed up in three big bins when I started out to sort them last night. Finally finished at 4:30 in the morning. It is called obsessive compulsive!
