My fingers are sore. Why? From all the lacing I've been doing on this custom set of 5 Large Rose stems. 80 petals down, and I still have a whole 'nother set of petals to make and lace. :S
I don't know why I have such a hard time photographing these rainbow finished beads. The dark orange is the only one that's accurate. The light orange shows too yellow and the salmon pink is too pinky (It's not a bubble gum pink I promise!) and the gold isn't really that yellow. I am using natural light, so I don't know what gives. Maybe it's my computer and not me or my camera?
I'm still waiting on the red beads to arrive! :S So for now I'll just be making the bunches of leaves I'm going to need.
I mentioned that since I have custom orders that will take me well into October, that I was going to reserve the weekends to work on the patterns I'm wanting to publish for sale. This past weekend I started on the pics for my Beaded Gerbera Daisy pattern. I'm excited about it! I wasn't able to finish it though, as my children were filled with demons and it didn't feel right to leave my husband alone with that kind of nonsense, so I will do more work on it this upcoming weekend. :) Look for it in my shop soon!
Here is a little sneak peak of my Gerbera!
I'm not going to be selling ALL my patterns, as some of them I'd like to keep to myself, but I will be offering some. Another one I will be doing soon (maybe next month?) is for my Bearded Iris.
