Two days from now, as part of Bead Soup Blog Party 7’s first reveal, I post my completed project.
Partner Pam Chesbro of Tulsa generously gifted me with a number of choices…
Once I settled on my design idea, I confronted the worry of “not enough time” by taking the project with me.
Here, I bead during a lull in Amapola Gallery traffic.
As one of 42 local artists in this coop gallery, I share in both the ownership and the work, so I spend a couple of days every six weeks minding the store.
When I tired of beading, I put other ideas to work. Pam’s plentiful bead soup provided me with a slew of options. With some of the bead soup leftovers, I fashioned a macramé wrap bracelet for Spring.
In addition to macramé, I resolved to try metal work. This, a studio “first”: me drilling on a metal heart that was included in my bead soup.
Once the holes were drilled, I started adding charms. (Are we having fun yet?)
Aaaaaaah! I could go on and on.
Instead, I’ll take pictures, complete my finishing touches and begin to summarize my Bead Soup Blog Party 7 experience.
Maybe I’ll even draft a post and schedule it for release just after midnight Friday morning. Be sure to check back.
How do you rev your beading engines for the deadline?
