You’re hungry and you want to cook a steak on the grill.
You want to impress your girlfriend by using the fireplace.
You’re out camping, and you want to roast marshmallows.
You’re ice-fishing, and you need to keep warm.
You need to make smoke signals so that someone finds you in woods.
Your neighbor’s barn is blocking your view of the sunset.
You can’t figure out what else to do with that stolen car.
(Feel free to add to the list…)
To light a fire, you need the proper materials, such as kindling wood or a can of gasoline, and either a lighter or waterproof matches. Zippo lighters are the best, but sometimes they run out of fluid. So, if you’re in the wilderness, make sure you also have some matches. If for some reason, you get lost in the woods with nothing, then you’ll have to rub two sticks together until they ignite.
Speaking of having the proper materials, today, I looked through my bead stash and realized that I hardly had any red seed beads! I guess I haven’t used much red since I completed Rudy’s Dream last year. So, today I went to Beaucoup Beads to do a little shopping. I was thrilled because everything in the store was 20% off! Do you think I have enough red beads now? I also got some red Nymo and some oval-shaped Opalite beads that I plan to use for headlights. That should keep me busy for awhile…
When I got home, I cut out some more felt shapes for my 1943 Chevy fire truck. I cut out some black Ultrasuede for the interior, as well as a couple of the tires, and I cut out the windows. Also, if you enlarge the photo, you’ll see that I cut out a couple of pieces of clear vinyl to use for the windows, as well. It’s kind of a slow process, but I want to make sure everything is just right before I start beading…
