What's up now

I wasn't able to log on for more than a five minutes on Tuesday, and it didn't get any better Wednesday, so here is the post I would have shared on Tuesday.

My Bearded Iris bloomed again this year, and then bloomed again! For a total of four blooms. There probably won't be any new posts until at least June, may longer we'll have to play it by ear. I'm going to be very busy. Talk to you then.

Fourth of July Red, White, and Blue Fireworks Earrings

    I was going to post this on Thursday, but the wind was so bad I couldn't get a connection in the house and it was misting so I couldn't sit outside to get online. Not that I'll be doing that anymore; too many close calls with dropping my laptop. And last time a bird pooped on my monitor. 
  But better late than never right?

    Here is my latest item : Fourth of July Red, White, and Blue Fireworks Earrings. They are based on my Rain drop earrings but with round beads so they look more like three fireworks in the night sky. They are nicely patriotic and a elegant reminder of summer nights spent on a quilt watching fireworks paint the sky in a Kaleidoscope of colors. 

 Soon I will have a pair for every season. I just have to pick out the beads for the Autumn one.

   Each earring is made of three small (6mm) red, white, and blue glass beads (one each) on three separate strands of hand curved stainless steel wires. The entire piece measures 2 2/8" from the top of ear wire to the bottom of the longest bead line. The ear wires are hypo-allergenic stainless steel.

   The chicken wire seems to be working. The cucumbers out in the garden aren't growing very well, but they haven't been eaten. Yet.

   The cucumbers I bought are doing well too. Six survived. I'm afraid to plant them out in the garden; they will be staying in the front. I transplanted them into bigger pots the other day, they look ok.

   This is shaping up to be a terrible year for pests. Or a great year, depending on your view point. The kale have nasty green caterpillars on them. Some of the caterpillars are on the squash too. Speaking of which, if you have squash you should be checking for borer worm eggs on the under sides of their leaves and stems. If you don't sqush or otherwise remove the tiny red eggs within three days of them being laid they will hatch, bore into your plant, and eat it from the inside.

   The wind is terrible still. Ruining my internet connection, beating up the plants, and drying out everything.

Blue chick

I finished working on a blue version of my chicks a couple of weeks ago. The blue really goes well with the yellow beak and feet. I'm going to add it as an offical option for the chicks later, but I wanted to debut it on my blog first. I could decide on which photo to use.

  One of these days I'm going to have to try taking group photos of the chicks in my old Easter Basket. Don't forget about Bats Bizarre's Mother's day sale. Use coupon code MOTHERSDAY for 5% off your entire purchase until 5/9/14.

Don't forget Cinco de Mayo is Monday. Mom and I will be having cheese enchiladas; here is our recipe:
