Started last night to redo the lizard. At least the beads are round although they seem very large next to few 15s that stuck around the nose. The bright green color seems more joyous.

In my eagerness to start on the new little creatures that came in the mail, I put aside the just-started frog to begin on the lizard. After several hours of beading I became dissatisfied with the blahness of what I was doing. So I laid it aside and worked on the blahness of the frog. The question today is: will I have to cut off the several hours of beading and start over or can I rescue the lizard?

news on the official Fire Mountain contest site. To be included among so many great beaded pieces is truly an honor. Thanks to Fire Mountain for all the work of sponsoring this contest! I am over the moon and back to the beading tray!

Just looked at yesterday's photo and thought what a difference a day and a few sequins can make.

It is now getting interesting to see how many animals I can put sequins on before people start gagging. I still consider the dachshund but the fabric is so tough it makes my hands ache and my fingers go numb with the pressure I need to get the needle through. I may have to relearn how to use a thimble! Or pick another animal.

Here is the snake with his tongue and belly done. Below he has become a silver snake. I don't know of any with this coloring in the wild but I have a vivid imagination of the family snake in the story of Helen of Troy. She goes to a temple to pray to a spirit in snakes for her health. She spends the night on the floor in the company of the real snakes. One crawls over her and sticks its tongue in her ear. From this she acquires her ability to see into the future. When she arrives back home she finds a baby snake had hidden in the chariot. She makes a shrine for it and keeps it with her, even when she flees to Troy with Paris.

I keep thinking that the Mello's are raising giraffes just outside of Point Arena and I feel I should go take a look at the real thing but getting in and out of a car makes me ache for hours afterward. So I continue in my make-believe world.
