I love the color of these Precoisa beads! Have you noticed that I am now spelling Precoisa, if not right, at least differently. So the squirrel is done and I have started on the worm. I was getting so tired of beading in brown, gold, black and white so it is a really joy to work in primary colors. Also this is the first worm I have done since I started stuffing the animals. The worm is so much easier to work on when the sides don't wiggle. Hm, I just tried to go back to make a new paragraph and again it does not work. Will try to get a photo of the worm between rain showers. It feels very autumn-like here.

I did search for a new blog machine and got so confused by the many sites that wanted to stick their hands in my credit card that I have returned here, with cussing,

Please insert "big" in that first line between very and tail. Will close to go seek a new blogger program.

Another design goof in the "BABE" series. It wasn't until I set it on the photo shoot set up that I discovered this. So I ripped out the beading on the front legs planning to do them again. Then I lost patience with everything and picked up the cow from the "BABE" series. I thought I could use the new Precoisa white beads. I had broken several needles in the past few days and now none of the longer needles were thin enough to go through the bead! There are days like this! So I stopped beading and gathered all my needles, sorted through them until I found a very thin (15#?) three-inch needle that sped me on my way. Having no idea of where I got this one fine needle I hauled out the latest Fire Mountain catalog to order more.

I am now working on a lovely mouse from the BABE set of McDonald's gift toy es. These five are from the movie, "Babe" and each of them is well done. They are plump and solid. Not floppy like the beanie babies. They are about the same size and seem to take about the same length of time to bead..
Again the text tool in Blogspot will not allow to go back to make toyes into toys. I am about ready to change my blogger.

I have returned to the chicken to sew on the last of the white beads. I am finding these Precoisa do really fit together as closely as I wish.
Got a note from Vicki that while she was gallery sitting at CHAC - Coast Highway Art Collective, in Point Arena on Monday that she sold three animals! Many thanks Vicki! That inspires me to get back to my beading tray.
