First Finish of 2006
All the beadwork is done and Celtic Winter is now finished. I am not sure exactly how long I have been working on her but my rough guess would be six months. I was only going to work on the beads a little last night. I thought I would do one side of the border then go onto something else. When that was done I thought okay I'll do the top of the border and then go to bed and read. By that point of course I decided to just keep going. I couldn't even leave the outline of her face until the morning. The result is that I am tired but happy. I have really enjoyed working on her despite being a little bored with the colours at the start. I feel almost sad that she is finished. Bugs Bunny is next as my boyfriend has been asking about it. He's actually taken an interest!
Earlier in the day I also made this birthday card for a friend. The stamp was free with a papercraft magazine. I had bought those little jewel flowers and diamontes and wanted to use them. I used a brad to attach the flower in the centre. To be honest I am not sure if I like it and so might not use it. What I had in mind originally was to use a photo and make a scrap book page using these things. However, I didn't have a good photo of my friend and no way to get one without her being suspicious. So I made this instead. I might leave the scrapbook page idea for my sister or my mum.
SO what's next??? LOL
Have a good one! *hugs*
