Well first of all let me apologize for not posting lately, I have been very busy making a new driveway for the house and my most exciting news i have a new PUPPY yeah can you believe that. Went to take one of the cats into the ver because it was sneezing and the receptionist says "Does anyone need a new Puppy" well since my bff Sylvia is looking for a new puppy for Tasha I of course said yes i do , and out she comes with a big footed monster size puppy that is black and tan like a rottweiller or houndog so i knew that wasnt going to work for Sylvia since Tasha is a little peekineese so I did a good thing and went home without her only to return to get her and bring her home . Oh the kitten is okay too just has a cold. Now onto the jewelry news I finally got around to making the first item in the Vintage Remix line which is a line I have wanted to do for a long time, I used a vintage ladies cufflink and set it into a ring .

Well my new life in florida has started i finally have gotten the intertnet again thanks to 2 weeks of waiting and a satellite company called something blue maybe blue moon or i dont know something blue. The house looks like a tracking center for ufo's here in floriday satellites everywhere on top of it for direct tv and internet. Life here in rural florida is going to be different. I have been stretching my horizons on the enameling thing, made a red heart for valentines day for etsy want to do some more stuff like it. I also attended my first ever actual knitting group met some wonderful ladies and a great little shop in town will send pics at next meeting i am going to like this i know now the knitting thing is a little different than what i am used to which is straight knitting with nubby kind of thread this is a softer ply yarn with a size 15 wooden knitting needles and am making a drop stitch scarf which i thought would be easy since i always drop stitches anyway so far so good we will see. disigned some new jewelry designs for etsy and the site preview tomorrow evening on etsy check it out!
