I got a lot done over the last few days, finished the pines and added branches to the other trees. Filled in the edges and put some little touches here and there. I will sit it aside to make sure I am done while I decide on what type of beads to use for the edging.
I was a beautiful day, sunny and about 18 degrees above 0! Took a short walk while the sun was up.
I think we have reached the part of winter where I get antsy. I started beading the pine trees, got done with one and jumped to the door frame. The door needed more outline, it was really bugging me. Made a bare bush out of horsehair and beaded it into place under the pine trees. I found a cool raven bead and had to add that, but she needed to be doing something… dug up this antler looking piece, stained it and beaded it in place. Now, I will go finish that pine tree!
Thanks to all for following and your kind words!
Happy New Year! I have been working on the night sky of my new beadwork. I am almost done with the sky section and making my plans for the trees. I will be adding a layer to the trunks and sewing in the branches. The layered work is tricky, a lot of it is done one bead at a time. I think I will start with the pines on the left using a bead mix of dark greens in size 15/0. I have plenty of inspiration right out my window!
