Every New Year on this blog, I usually give an detailed outline of what goals I would like to accomplish. Sometimes goals are accomplished and sometimes they aren’t, so this year, I decided I’m just going to go with the flow. I’m going to bead what I want to bead when I want to bead it! And, it’s a good thing, because I have just received a custom order for my Etsy shop – another beaded sheepdog pin/pendant! Not a bad way to start out 2010! 🙂
Today, I cut out some felt shapes for my beaded Old English Sheepdog. (I also cut out some felt for a future poodle!) Then, I stitched my felt pieces together.
Here are the beginnings of Eliza, the 4th dog taken from my Divas portrait. (You can read more about the real Eliza HERE.) I am doing bead embroidery using 5 different colours of tiny Japanese size 15 seed beads. I think I have about 1/4 of the beadwork complete. How do you think she looks so far?
