And there is even more yet unphotographed. Really focusing on the beads in order to temper my output. I did come up with a cool millefiori technique last night but by the time I really got it down it was too late to bake them. I'll do that tonight and take the technique a bit further with the colors.
It's raining today and it feels like spring rain. All through this summer and this past spring I feel like it has never truly *felt* like the right season. During spring it was still so cold that it felt like a fall season transit. I know the whole country baked like crazy this summer but we had it pretty mild until July, and by then we were vacationing in Kansas where it was like 111 degrees, and we missed the bad heat here and the critical no-rain standoff which ruined everyone's gardens and crops. In general, I've felt a sense of seasonal/weather displacement. I always have to stop and try to remember what season it is. That today brings a sense of spring so close to fall is nutty.
