Still here and still beading

I am having the hardest time getting a good picture of this page. The fabric and the beads are picking up glare, I think when it is done I will have to build a light box to photo.

It has been a real healing page, it just has taken me some time to sort out my feelings and how the page speaks to me. I started my August page and it is astounding how the two are tied together. It wasn't planned that way, it just happened. It happens to have a snake......transformation.

I have this next week off and hope to have both done. I have planted 4 dozen iris, 2 more peach trees and am in the process of moving some things around. I only ordered 1,500 bulbs this, one year it was 3,000!

I am also going to take a ceramic class and make my back splash tiles for the kitchen. We remodeled this spring, red walls, white cabinets and grey counter tops. Replaced some of the appliances with stainless steel. We will finish the crown molding and trim this winter.
This is a piece I did 5 years ago. It is Mike's hands, yes he does have a short finger, oil rig accident.

Have a good day all!

This is wonderful! I understand your aggravation with lighting and photo-taking. My August page is difficult to photograph, too.

Photos of bead work never does it justice. Never has, never will!

Hey Judi, I've been there done that too with the shine from the beads. Try it in daylight but in the shade & with no flash, that was how I finally got a good pic of the Tide Pool when I first made it. Now I have a light box & what a difference.

Wow that bowl from Mike's hands is fantabulous! Love your kitchen too, those dramatic colours look great..

LOL at myself, I meant to tell you I love this page, the face is perfect with that gorgeous fabric

kv, Mary and Ellen....I purchased a light box today on ebay. I couldn't stand it any longer. I did save about 50 bucks for the size I got. I have been beading all night, on a roll.

Ellen, it has been a bit trying to bead, but then so are the feelings that it is all takes time.
