While having four heart attacks and three strokes on the same day (so it feels) I also worked a little  on the legs. To the left you can see how I beaded around the leg but this was very time consuming and clumsy so I got the idea of making the Russian spiral (as a tube) and then slipping it up the leg. Works like a charm. Adds a nice new texture. It is so much easier to bead these tiny parts off the animal and then slide them on and sew into place. I remembered the trick from the time I was beading tree branches
