The Green Cloud

Good Morning all!!!

I'm reporting to you from under a green cloud of pollen. Well, to be fair, we had a little shower last night that rinsed the sidewalks & cars into a streaked, tie-dyed looking landscape. This has been one of the worst years we've had for pollen in several years, but hopefully it will end soon. Luckily, I don't really have sinus problems & allergies, but I sympathize with all my friends who have been sniffly & headachy for the last few weeks. It's no fun seeing green water pouring out of your hair when you wash it, but there are worse things in life than a little green goo.

I'm back at the bench & working on a couple of new pieces. One is for my friend who is getting married next month & she wanted me to make her "something blue" for her wedding.....most of it's in the pickle right now waiting for completion. The other piece is a little something for me. I realized that I only have a couple of my own pieces & that I needed to do something about it. Well, I may have bitten off more than my little torch can handle. It's the largest piece I've attempted & I may not be able to do it, but I'm going to try. It will require the use of 2 torches at the same time (safety hazard?? Yep.) but it's a bit exciting to have fire in both hands. Hopefully I'll have photos tomorrow....I don't work very quickly so it does take me a while to create new piece.

In the meantime I hope y'all have a great day!!

Pollen sufferer here, of the sort of yellow kind? I wear your Candy's Heart often :-) Looking forward to seeing what you make to keep and what you made Blue! *hugs*
