That's what I'll be up to all morning, and then this afternoon I bead. Tina will join me in the studio where we will discuss the best way to show off the beaded beads that she completed with my pattern. I'm thinking a bracelet of cubic raw ropes, but maybe peanut ropes, the jury is out until we bead up some samples and decide.
It sometimes still amazes me when my minds eye doesn't reveal the flaw in my thinking. Yesterday I completed a large pendant and had an idea for a chain which I started beading up only to realize it was much to dainty for the scale of the pendant. Why did I not see that coming.....it was such a good idea when I was thinking it through.
Beth also came over and is going to make up some additional Dream Keeper rings like the one Sherry so graciously beaded for me. I may, caution this is not a promise, but I may get some kitted up for bead and button.
It's a ring people are enjoying a lot, and it's been in high demand, but I haven't had time to turn it into a kit yet......we'll see.
Here's one done by Suzl in Germany, pretty.
It's that time in the book where I'm waking up in the night mentally going over my progress and hyper ventilating, but I think I'm on track.....although the last few weeks of illustration are going to be daunting.
But for now, Gabriella arrives in a few hours and we're going to be in full time beading mode, fun!
