After a quick run into Coeur d'Alene to pick up some necessities, I settled down on the deck to do some beading. Sweet Hubby took this picture of me, hard at work.
The results-18 more Snapdragon pieces.
Saturday I made this beaded bead. There's a bit of just about everything in it.
I started with Right Angle Weave, then did some Ndebele, and finished up with some peyote. I embellished with netting. A nice satisfying project.
I love the colors. They remind me of the ocean beaches in Mexico. I apologize for the dark bead used as the base. I have no light colored 20mm beads in my stash. I am going to fix that problem asap.
Earlier this week I made use of that Octahedral Cluster kit.
I love this bead design.
It has some interesting geometric lines in it.
After making the kit I felt sufficiently confident to strike out on my own.
The kit uses 6mm round beads. I used some 4mm glass pearls.
Yes indeed, I am liking the beaded beads.
Well, I'm off to see Star Trek 11 again with my friend, Andrea. She's single, no kids (unless you count the 4 pugs that live with her), and wants to see it. I offered to go with her so she wouldn't have to go alone. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. I can hardly wait. I love that movie.
Have a great day.
