Check out my new forged bracelet, a technique I learned from my instructor:
This was a fun technique to learn. I will practice on copper, then will do my final one in silver, I think.
My mind turns to trip preparation these days. This weekend, I drug Joe to the local dive shop to pick up snorkel gear. I first fell in love with snorkeling during our catamaran trip to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) last summer:
I love seeing the fish, the coral reef, and underwater life. It was so relaxing…. almost as relaxing as the painkillers we enjoyed.
Anyway, here is my new gear:
I especially love my new mask!! It has a special prescription insert, so I may see perfectly under water. It solves the problem of how to enjoy snorkeling if you are blind as a bat! Last year, I made due with soft contact lenses, but I think this will work better!
Thanks to my sister, Yvette, who recommended what to buy. I decided to add on booties with my fins because i’m prone to get blisters. I plan on snorkeling everyday while we are on vacation, so I want to be comfy. I also have UV rash guards for Joe and I so we don’t get too burned.
Ok, I’ve procrastinated long enough!! Time to head to my quilt studio for some quality 1:1 time with my longarm and the quilt I have loaded. Take care, Carla
