Yay! I finally started doing some beadwork on my Boston trolley car! In the following three photos, you’ll see that I’ve stitched some size 11 Czech glass seed beads which outline the body of the car and circuit boards.
So far, I’m using 4 different greens, and a white. The greens are fading from one to another slowly across the train. I started this way so I can get an overall feel for how I’d like it to look.
And, it also appears that we have a driver waiting for passengers! That’s my longtime blogger friend Aaron the Truck Driver. Yea, I know. He’s a truck driver, not a trolley driver. But, he’s been drivin’ tractor trailers over on the west coast for a very long time, and I’ll bet he can drive just about anything with wheels. Of course, it would help if we had wheels. It looks like we aren’t gettin’ out of the MBTA‘s train yard today… :0
