Well this time I have had offline and taking care of DH with his back procedures has been a good time for me. It would have been better if we could have gone to AZ.... sighhh.... but at least I have been able to do some things I really love. As most of you know I was a very successful bead artist for most of my life. lupus made it so difficult that several years ago I had to stop beading. That doesn't mean I have lost my love for it. I still am very active in the beading world. The last month or so my hands have calmed down a lot. They haven't been shaking at all and I have a bit more strength in them. Still no feeling in my hands but I have been able to to a bit of beading. I am thrilled with this. Now it is not the massive advanced pieces I use to do but at least I can bead a bit right now. I have also kept up with my art every day but will show all of those later this week. I am at 166 pieces of art in 166 days. I am counting the bead patterns I am showing today. It's all art.
I look forward to catching up with all of you.
A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday.
You may remember this acrylic painting I did a while back, well I made a bead pattern from it.
Loom Bead Pattern
This is another one of my Crow patterns in Loom Beading
Even though I do not smoke medical marijuana I am an advocate of it and have many pieces of beaded jewelry and lighter covers with pot leaves. This is my newest addition.
I also love predator birds. The Eagle is one of my favorites. I do have this tested
This one I am testing right now and it's almost finished.
Yes this is one of our looms made by DH
Looms by Mike
I had to use different colored beads from the pattern. Pattern beads are ordered. I just had to bead it!
Wishing all of you a happy weekend.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
