Hello to All!
Well, this week has flown by! Can't say I've gotten a huge amount accomplished but there are a few updates. It was one of those weeks where I was constantly busy but just didn't seem to get a lot done. The wedding is upon us and I did finish the purse. I decided to keep it simple and just put yo-yos along the top. Now it matches the dress and is somewhat dressed up. This is the other side. Really, the only difference is that I used different color buttons.
I have been working a little here and there (which explains why it's not finished yet) on the bead challenge, "What's Your Sign." I got one part of it finished. There will be a beaded piece similar to this one hanging underneath but it will contain a real butterfly wing. Then I think I am going to hang them from a piece of driftwood. I would love to have dangles and some beaded butterfly wings but there won't be time to get that done before April 1. I think I will just get done what I get done and then after that, this piece may be one of those works in progress that I add to occasionally, when inspiration hits and when I get some free time (I crack myself up sometimes).
And here is the other side:
And now I have one more update. This one I am very excited about (not that I wasn't excited about the others). Very soon, I will have The Beaded Locket kits online! Yes, it's true! I worked on these samples and getting the beads together for a long time. I finally handed over the kit making to my friend Irene's daughter, Katherine and they are just about complete. Actually several kits are done and I'm having her make more. I'm very pleased with them, having rewritten the instructions and put together some very unique pieces in the kits. Asbjorn has started work on the website. I'll keep you posted and announce when they are online!
But here's a sneak preview of what they look like:
So that's all for now! We are off for a wedding this weekend, where I will wear the dress I made , with my altered purse and this hat. I had shoes but I did buy one thing: a new lipstick.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
