Working on samples for classes. Still have classes every monday til April 2, then I'll be able to work on my own projects. This is the beginning of a sample for my crazy quilting embellishing class and a netting sample for my beading class.
As I had to prepare samples for a beading class too, I got out my beads and did surf a bit on beadwork sites to see what's new and began drooling over this site and this one. Now I just can't wait for Serafini's book to be out so I can get it. It's due out September 2007 and you can be sure I'll watch for it. Gladly I have an issue of Bead and Button where that same artist gave basics instructions to make that kind of bead embroidery neckpieces and I am slowly planning one. Slowly I said....In fact, I am waiting for a bead order and to find a couple of focal beads or stones...perhaps I might even make them myself.
For those who like mix-media including fiber arts and beads, Myra Wood is a must.
Meanwhile, when I have a bit of free time, I am working on swaps. Until now, I enrolled in three swaps, one in which I have to make a bag that is done, one in which I have to make an etui or other contraption to store craft material and one in which I have to make something corresponding to the ethnicity my swap partner like. All three are well on their way of completion but I can't post full pictures just yet so not to spoil my swappee's pleasure.
Have a good week.
