I wanted you to see the giraffe I am working on. You are going to be looking at this one for a long time since I am doing it in 11s so it goes very slowly. If you look very closely you can see the beads on the tummy. I have finally learned to start beading any animal on the tummy and under the legs first. That way I have the freedom to bend the leg aside in order to get the needle in the tight spaces on the inside of the legs. Then I bead the inside of the legs. Only giraffes make doing the neck so easy. If I had the energy I would go to the B & B preserve, on the edge of Point Arena to observe their 5 giraffes.
