Busy Hands

The weather is really yucky here. It's been raining for a few days now and has been getting colder. I think winter is finally coming to TN. :(

Because I am pretty much stuck inside I figured it would be a good couple of days to work on some projects.

I have been crocheting a lot lately. I finished these two headband ear warmers today.

I really like this pattern a lot. It makes a really nice thick headband and the way it's crocheted doesn't give you a typical crocheted look. I also LOVE crocheting large flowers and I think they look cute on these.
Here is me trying to get a picture of it on my head.

Another project that I worked on today is a copper pendant I started a few weeks back. I sawed out the shape and it's just been sitting on my table all this time. Today I finally finished it! The pictures are kind of blurry and the lighting was horrible when I took these. The copper actually has a really pretty rainbow effect on it due to a patina I put on it and the stone is actually really deep blue. It is only my 3rd time making a bezel and setting a stone and frankly I am not very good at it, but hopefully you can't tell in the picture. haha...

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We ate our meal at Cracker Barrel and it was actually awesome. So nice to just show up and order and not have to cook all day long. I can't remember the last time I had a Thanksgiving with no family visiting or us traveling anywhere. I thought it would feel weird but I actually enjoyed it.
