Saturday's Gifts

I decided to try my hand at drilling my sea glass so I can make some jewelry with it!  I watched a ton of YouTube videos and then gave it a try!
I finally applied the right drill bit and it went through the glass like butter...almost!  It is a bit intimidating using the dremel in the water but with the right safety precautions, it works!  I see a whole new craft opening up for me!
 I also decided that the reason I didn't start the yellow and blue socks again ( I had two failures at working out the pattern) was because the colors didn't make my heart sing.
I am a dyer;  I dye!  And now I am singing at the new lime green and teal yarn!
 All my busies this morning were in anticipation of these visitors!
Ella played harmonica with Grandpa but when I whipped out the camera to snap the moment, she looked away!  Very cute to see her 'play' music!
 Another new adventure for Ella-using the walker to..........run!  She was so fast, my camera couldn't focus on her!
She gleefully yelled and laughed the whole time she ran and crashed through the room!  It was hysterical to watch!
Yes, she was very proud of her new skills!
Cassandra and I even got to try our hands at more glass work when Ella napped-I have her hooked on its use-she has just started to collect her own glass now that she is a beach resident!
