Making Progress

Sunday, January 29, 2012

I've finished the outside of my beaded prayer, finally! Now I just have to do a fringe around the edge. I've never done a beaded fringe so I'm going to look for some directions first. My hope is to finish this by the 31st.

New Project!

Sunday, January 1, 2012

I was hoping to finish this today but I don't know if I will. I worked on it last night but even with glasses and a good light it was straining my eyes so I quit. This is a project from the book Beading for the Soul. I love this book! It has some great projects in it and this is one of my favorites. It's called a Beaded Prayer. I'm using it more as a beaded intention/wish for 2012. I'm going to bead the outline of the rose and leaves and then put inside a piece of paper with my three wishes for 2012. I thought about everything I'd like to happen in the next year and these three are the most important to me.

I'm not sure how spiritual I am but it makes me think of the saying to work like everything is up to you and pray like everything is up to God. There are parts of these wishes that I can't control but I think there is a lot I can control and I'm going to work on that.

After the paper goes in I'll bead the edges and maybe add some fringe. Sorry the pictures aren't great. I kept trying but this was the best I could get.

The last picture is Mr & Mrs Freddie! I'm going to turn the edges under and then add a felt backing. I thought they came out pretty good. My mermaid is still in the project list but I haven't had a chance to work on her.
