Starting from yesterday the weather suddenly changed. It has been raining constantly ever since, fluttering away all my fantasies of the Indian summer lingering for many days ahead and us going on trips and having picnics. And let me tell you, I wasn't prepared for the gloomy, sad scenery greeting me every time I look through the window.
But bad weather has never kept me away from my work and I have the sunshine right here on my work table.
That sunshine is my oya necklace. Not the first one to be made, but the first to be finished. I didn't stick to using the traditional oya needle or method to make it and I don't think I ever will. I used embroidery floss for the flowers instead of my beloved cotton yarn to make them smaller in size and I think they turned out nicely. The necklace foundation was first envisioned to be a lariat, a nice and skinny thing to have wrapped around the neck, but I couldn't find the right size of yarn / thread so I changed the design and turned it into a necklace.
