But let's move on. What happened this weekend? Well, Nacho is feeling better. If you didn't read last week, Nacho had another abscess in less then a month due to fighting with Toonces. You can read about it here and here. And don't forget I'm having the Nacho sale again to help cover some of the vet bills. Use coupon code NACHO20 to get 20% off anything in my etsy store. That includes clearance and patterns.
Hmmm, what else happened this weekend? Oh yeah, I finished up all the beadwork on the solar system project over the weekend. I am also about 85% finished with Saturn's rings, I should have photos later in the weeks of that. I'm so happy with how it looks so far. I haven't decided on arrangement and a few other things need to be added, but overall I think it's looking good. We had some friends over this weekend and they said it was even more impressive in person. So I'm glad it's getting such good feedback. I think I might be able to meet my goal of getting it done before the end of the year. Fingers crossed.
I also got about 95% of this wonderful custom cuff finished this weekend. Now I jut need to punch some holes in the leather and make a cotton ribbon for the closure. I'm in love with the design and I'm loving it with the studs added. I glued it yesterday, so tonight I should be able to put the finishing touches on it and get it ready to go to it's new home.
And last, but not least, I practiced some embroidery stitches. I've never attempted these types of leaves, so I thought I would give it a try. I have a sweater that I love, but I put a very small hole in it. So I used these embroidered leaves to cover up the hole and add a little interest to the sweater. I learned a lot from these two small leaves and now I can't wait to try it out on some other projects.
I also wanted to show off this great cat themed treasury that my Down the Rabbit Hole cuff was included in. Check it out and all the kitty goodness.
