Now for more....

lentils!! Neutral colors this time: I'm on to the bigger rods now...short rods are all gone! I have about another week, maybe two before I start my next challenge--making beads not to sell :) A week of making beads just for me, to make new jewelry pieces for next year. Fun! My friend Tanya is joining in the fun as well so be sure to check out her blog!

And please mark your calenders for next Saturday.....Open House at my new place, with loads of cool things for your Holiday wish lists! Come shop! Support the Arts!

We interrupt the lentil parade....

to bring you my bead embroidery project! This is the drawing:It's the start of a Zentangle, but then I stopped. Looked at her. Decided she needed to be beaded.

This is the drawing transferred to fabric and the beginnings of the beading:

You have go to love those coral lips!! Not to mention the evil in her eyes. Piece measures 5x5". To be framed or put in the center of a mini art quilt. Haven't decided. More updates as she progresses :)

in oranges, yellows and reds this time:And since you're probably tired of the lentil parade, I thought I'd show you my first R.A.W. piece from the NanC Meinhardt workshop: Yes, this took all day :)

And part of the night.

My torching table.....

Has never looked worse! I hate using a tiny piece of glass.....I want the entire rod! Plus, I'm just lazy like that :)So the goal of this week (and maybe then next couple of weeks ) is to turn that mess of glass into beads like these: Made last night. 20 focals! TWENTY!! That's a lot of beads! So wish me luck.....

Oh, and I'll try to get an "after" shot. If I make it to the end of the mess before I die a horrible glass-related death. Like impaling myself on one of these short rods.
