I ended up being super busy and tired on Saturday and had good intentions of posting on Sunday but live just keeps rolling on and rolling me along with it. Though I have better progress shots to share today so that might have been just as well.
My latest TokyoTreat box arrived on Saturday eventing of all times and was ‘hidden’ on one of the chairs outside as we weren’t at home. It’s a bit devastating that I cancelled my subscription today so only have one more box to look forward to, but I couldn’t justify the expense right now. If you have not tried Japanese marshmallows then you really need to they are divine, full of soft, sweet flavour and so squishy as marshmallows should be. I’ll also have to cut back on buying books which is really more devastating but I have enough reading material (unread) for a few months and can really be more picky when buying books. I can also reread what I have so there is that. While I don’t miss working out at the mines one little bit, I do miss the money and with wanting to buy a more suitable car (there is really nothing wrong with mine, it’s just old and ill suited to me (it was a compromise as my dad was trying to get me to buy an even more ill suited car) personally.) And wanting to buy a new bed with a much softer mattress like my old one I had to sell after moving. I might just be cheeky and buy only a mattress to save money, who needs a base? lol.
Ok and let’s move on to the beading which you would rather hear about. So I had meant to be good and go back to making Christmas items but I just had to experiment with and idea for the structural of my open Fibonacci sequence project only I got side tracked by how beautifully the matte black and iris blue beads look together (no the photo just dose not do them justice). This one is going to be an odd little odd beat project and I would love to do more projects in this combination . if only you could see how stunning the colour comb is. I have plans to get more in the future.
On the flat Fibonacci sequence project I’ve made some progress but it is slow going on all of them and this one has more beads then the open one, but i only have five more rows of black cubes togo and then I will go back to working on the solid 3d adaptation. It’s still mid orange cube and is proving a tough customer. But I am sure I’ll get there eventually. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it past seven cubes but we shall see with time.
I’m pleased with the progess I’ve made even’ if it has been slow going and a bit of a slog.
And well here is a top view of the 3d open Fibonacci sequence project. As you can see the larger two cubes are not sitting straight by them selves and I’ve yet to decide what to do about that though I have a few options, including adding wire in the cubes. It would be nice to be able to have clear glass cubes to insert into the middle of the bigger ones to keep them inform without adding in supporting beams of beads but that would be extremely difficult to achieve and expensive to boot.
Well I had better get back to working on my bead work.
All the best Lou.
