We have been having an odd winter in North Pole. Last night it was 35 degrees above zero, and raining. Yep, raining. The weather man says it will be above zero for the next week. This makes for poor road conditions but saves on the heating bill. I like that I can hide inside andContinue reading “35 degrees”
Turkey, stuffing, pie…. between cooking and eating I found some time to bead!
I have completed the hills and mountains, starting to bead the sky! I’m going with a summer blue, evening sky but…. check out this photo from our sky last night! I will probably use this for reference on another piece.

Almost done with the main part, should be done tomorrow. Now to decide on my edging.
No beading yesterday, bummer. I got a good bit done today. This piece is filling in nicely. Enjoy.
I am pleased with how this is coming together. I put in 2 hours earlier today and 1 hour this evening.
This is 3 hours of beading. I put down 3 beads at a time, go back through those beads, then lay a stitch between every-other bead to keep them in place. After I have finished a complete row around I go through each bead again.
This was a fun project. I would like to thank the new owner for taking the time to find me and asking me to do this piece.
These are my latest embroidery pieces. Been working on the ptarmigan piece for a month! I really am happy with it. I am going to enter them into a juried show for October. Stay tuned, I will post if they get accepted. Wish me luck!
