On my last post, Bluebirdcrafts mentioned that she works for the company that builds these M1 Abrams military tanks.

Very cool, but I bet they don’t build ’em like I do!😉

And, as soon as I figure out how I’m going to build my beaded tank, I will let you know!😉

  1. >Wow, i'll have to tell my friend Robyn about this. She loves militaria, and she's an artist (like me).What a great idea! Fusion between the masculine, destructive force of a tank and the intimate, more decorative and "feminine", creative activity of beading! I LOVE it. Can't wait to see the finished product. Very happy to have found you on the Etsy forums.

  2. >This is going to be a most interesting beading journey to follow, LB. I love that your "subjects" are so varied.Again, thanks for sharing the "step-by-step" with us. It is always a delight to see what you have done from day to day.

  3. >I was an armor officer when I was in the army. I knew tanks well: my own, an M-60A1, was named "Backache" for very good reasons. I still carry a 14" scar on my left leg that Backache gave me.I hope that there is a way, using felt, to express the cold steel that is, in reality, what a tank is.
