Well this past week has been one of trial and error and lots of things have really not gone to plan work wise.
But you just have to ride out these times I feel even tho at the time they can prove to be hugely disappointing on a time wasting basis.
Is it time wasted tho?
No, its all down to development and some things work somethings don't. Toady I'm ironing some fabric envelopes for a another project that just didn't work out....but I love them all the same.

 Something about neat stacks of envelopes and what they may contain....

In Case.............

I found this tiny case over the weekend...its meant for jewellery so you can work out how small it would be. I built a cobweb in it from nylon thread. I think its a really pretty result and a tiny pearly spider is all that is needed to finish it all off. Ive done a few very large cobwebs in the past now but they have all been out of clear thick fishing line so using a thin thread was tricky but I think its worth it.

Here's a large well actually very large mouse Ive been working on I like to make something big in between my other work almost like a project.
Shes been a lot of work and Ive done some very late nights obsessing over her.
Shes done now and I'm going to curl up and get some sleep myself.

Thread and silk......

I may have mentioned this on my blog and older posts....I have a little omen that seems to come along quite often.....little spiders hanging from their silk. Ive had them hanging above where I work and even hanging off my work. I take a comfort in seeing them as a good luck thing. Everyone has a thing.....don't they?
Toady I go to my sewing machine and this little guy is hanging of my sewing thread.
Wishing you a day a 'good luck omen' day.
