The beading is coming along, and time is marching along too! I can feel the deadline looming (insert scary music here!).
Last weekend I realized that I didn’t have enough beads! Yikes. That’s not good. I ordered some more, and at least this time I had a better idea how many I need to cover a given area. Luckily for me, beadfx got my order out really fast and I received them on Friday! (Which begs the side note, what is going on with Canada Post – this is the second time in a row they’ve been way faster than they themselves predicted!) I also got my new enamels from Thompson on Friday! So exciting – I can’t wait to try them out!
Anyway, it’s right back at it now. I’ve listened to more audio books (as well, as the radio, a Henry Rollins spoken word show, and watched another movie – “The Painted Veil” = very good). I enjoyed the Sophie Kinsella’s “Twenties Girl” audio book (even though I would never have chosen that in print form!), and I especially enjoyed Mark Doty’s “Dog Days: a memoir” – he is a poet and non fiction writer so the language was fantastic!
I just realized when I was looking at which photos to post that there is an unexpected benefit to documenting the process as I go along. I can see that I am making headway on the beading (even though it doesn’t seem like it when I’m in the middle of it)!
Hope you are well.
