Ramona's Flying Thread
Some time ago I told you of my friend Roberta who could open and close her heavy closet door by concentrating on it.You have also heard of the chaos in a home a poltergeist presence can evoke.Ramona's story is sort of between these two types of occurrences.Equally interesting.
She has a shop on Etsy.Some of her creations are included in the video but you will probably want to see more.
She tells about herself in her profile:
"After retiring from a job at an automotive assembly plant I finally found time for my artistic and creative side.
I dusted myself off and then took a class in Stained Glass something I had always wanted to learn. I soon figured out how to take the process and make soldered jewelry. I now have a line I call Soldered Treasures that I am very proud of.
These days I fill my days between my soldering iron and my sewing machine my first love.
Until the grandkids come my dog Sydney and my cat Gracie keep me company and fill my days, oh and lurking in on the forums.
I belong to the Cleveland handmade Team and love chatting with these wonderful women."
Here is her experience in her own words.
"I was starting to sew a project one time and couldn't find the thread I needed anywhere and I had just had it. I gave up and turned on the TV I figured oh well might as well just relax. As I sat down the thread I was looking for cam flying across the room and hit me on the head literally.
It looked as if I had left it on my dresser that I had in the living room at the time. I saw it coming right at me and still didn't move, I couldn't believe my eyes.
After the freak out I turned off the TV and made my project, thought it was a sign.
Thank You for your story,Ramona...
