But it did, and we spent a gloriously refreshing couple weeks at the cabin.
Ted got the hang of it pretty quickly.
With so few distractions
"Hey guess what, let's go to the beach."
Like, a ridiculous amount of earrings (more on these soon). I couldn't stop. It happened sort of on accident, I hadn't set out to make that many. Really, I think it was the lack of distractions.
about all the super neato suncatchers and mobiles I keep seeing on Pinterest.
The challenge here was making it fit in the long window without distracting from the beach view. I built it in several shorter sections and fastened them together, some while they were laid out flat and others after hanging it up. For a mobile it's pretty heavy, and about as tall as me.
Glass, shells, rocks, even a small float are mixed together with the glass beads, jewelry wire, and some random rusty hardware from my Granddad's basement that I'd thrown in a bag to take with me, not knowing what I'd make with it.
But it's the beach. The beach is supposed to be imperfect.
I made other stuff too and can't wait to share in more posts, but for now I'm just starting to settle back into home and studio, back to reality, where it is starting to feel like . . . fall.
Hope you are enjoying September so far yourself.
