A lack of crafts

This week, I'm staying in Arlington, taking care of the dogs. Which means that I'm far away from most of my afternoon/evening crafts.

And while I could move the stump (they have a backyard that I can carve in, and its not that heavy) I really don't want to. Its heavy enough to pass on moving it, plus the tools, and sharpening gear...its just not worth it. So there'll be a hiatus on the stump.

Spoon carving is in the same boat, more trouble to move that it is worth. A bucket of spoons, and knives, and the sharpening gear, plus enough spoons blanks that I'll want to carve.

So that leaves my titanium. Which arrived last Friday. I got all my ti gear into my little timbuk2, and it is easy enough to do inside. Since the weather hasn't been all that great, that means my indoor project seems to be the way to go.

I've got all my colored ti coiled and split into rings, and just under half of my raw ti done as well. Now I'll start in on some projects. The top of the list is another double-twist bracelet for Kelley. And maybe a headpiece for her Faire wear.

Other than that, I'm going to try some experiments with heat coloring some finished pieces, and see what kind of results I'll get.
