Just a quick Monday morning report on how this is going. I have moments when I am working on the piece that I should not be doing THIS. However as the beads take over the patterns I am pleased with the closeness of the values and hues. Am on to the legs - the easiest part. The question now is: can I do this and the wings and get them done before next Saturday when I take the bear to Point Arena? I have had moments when I thought of making a beaded tutu, in pink pearls, and then there are moments. . . I also want to add a picot edging to the arms and legs.
