Yes, last week it really was warm enough for a backless dress. Now it’s cooler and rainy, but it’s actually kind of a relief. It just felt way too soon for that much sun, especially in Portland. Plus, after the first spring shower, everything smelled fresh and wonderful.
Last week I worked on some jewelry with my newly-acquired metalworking skills and tools. This is the first pair of earrings I made, totally from scratch. I didn’t smelt the metal, but I soldered and hammered the hoops and even made the ear hooks. Much more to come, soon!
