Shop update coming Wednesday night, 7 pm EST. Along with some of the usual bronze pieces and some that are usual but haven't been there for a while, there will be a handful of these shank back buttons. I am personally in love with the bunny most of all. And maybe the lady bug too. Maybe all of them because I love buttons. They make me think of my Oma and her sewing room and the countless hours I spent making clothes out of 'terimal' for my plush bears.
Remember those bronze toggles? Finally, all finished and ready to go. These are a nice substantial weight and have forged bronze toggle bars. Not too big, not too small. I'm keeping a couple of these for myself. In fact maybe that is why it has taken so long to get these ready. I'm a secret hoarder of components. At least components are small and there is no danger of creating a horrifying episode of Hoarders where they find me trapped under a pile of bronze. No, that would be the episode where they find me trapped in a room full of towers of books. I would be completely kitted out with granola bars and bottled water so there would be no real danger.
And a handful of new beads including one of the boo boo beads. It's got a nice large hole in it so you can get chain or heavier cord through it. The other one like it is going into a secret project for my daughter's birthday which isn't until August. I am ever hopeful that I will not be finishing things last minute. It's May, I have 3 1/2 months. Shall we take bets on how soon this project will get done?
Just as a little update. I'm doing well. Dreadfully tired a lot of the time and food tastes funny but otherwise well. Moving slowly but I think this might be my time to enjoy a slower pace and learning to listen to what my body needs. Thank you all for your support. You are amazing and such an incredibly integral part of my healing. I really do not have words for how much gratitude I feel.
