I prefer stone collector to addict…

I’ve spoken about my cabochon habit before, but today I thought I’d fess up.

They do say that admitting it is the first step to recovery.

Ocean Jasper

African Green Opal, Labradorite, Chalcedony, and some strange pieces at the bottom.

A mixture of odd yummies

IMG_6226

Some Prudent Man, Ruby things, and other lovelies.

This is the chrysoprase, chrysocolla, gaspeite, and shattuckite page with a few odd ones sneaking in.

Crazy Lace

Things I don’t know what to do with

IMG_6230

Serpentine, blue opal, petrified wood and larimar.

IMG_6231

Red Creek Jasper, Sonoran Dendrite, and a few of their friends.

The turquoise page, although I think a crysocolla has sneaked in when I wasn’t looking.

Fossilized Coral

And, of course, the brecciated mookite page, with some phoychromed something or others, a couple of willow jaspers?, and two stones that don’t know why I bought them.

Don’t judge me.

They actually are more beautiful that the photo’s give them credit for. The colours didn’t come out well.

I took them so that I could keep an eye on what they’re doing and print them out to design around.

Somehow I’ve got to set them before P sends the van to take me away.

I did make some pieces recently that I didn’t show you.

One of the custom pieces.

Imperial Jasper

Which was followed by his friend who didn’t want to be left out.

The friend

And I started another painting.

In other news.

Spud is causing as much trouble as she possibly can.

IMG_6030

Except when she’s so tired she just has to fall asleep wherever she happens to be.

Here she is at the vets

IMG_6025

And this is what she thought about it.

IMG_6026

I think she’s actually been sent here to cure me of my need for material things as she and Nutmeg continually race back and forth until all my things get broken.

And all my computer and phone wires get chewed through.

And all of my skin gets ripped off.

And my sleep is interrupted by sporadic pounces.

Darn cute kittens…
