Still making stars for the Christmas trade but do not know how many there will be as holding the tiny parts of one, gives me cramps in my fingers. I am doing one now in 8s and so far I have less cramping sessions with the bigger chunks. I got my shipment of 9 frogs for $10. at eBay so I am really eager to get to work on those instead of these fiddly stars.

I found out, when I sat her up with the beads done on her chest that she has boobs. How great that she has been a 'sh'e all along!
Barbara Fast, at CHAC gallery in Point Arena, invited me to be in the Christmas jewelry show and requested that I make more of the puffed stars and sun prism balls. So I gathered all the stuff for each project before sending my Fire Mountain order off to Vicki. Last night I started on the puff stars and found it very comforting to do something so familiar. Thank goodness I had two boxed of Delicas in eggshell colors so I am off and beading. I am hoping to extend the star theme by make sea stars too.

I started beading on this the pink frog I had gotten from BB Toys. You see them on his one foot. That was the result of my whole afternoon's work.
Yesterday I had stopped working in the evening on the monkey because I could see that sewing in his upper lip needed precise work and I felt I was too tired to do a good job. However when I sat down today to work, after a good nap, I still did not feel I was up to the job and all I really wanted to do was bead. I immediately found the red/pink beads that were perfect for this frog and never got up the nerve to return to the monkey who goes on living with a loose upper lip.
I see I need to redo the backdrop. The sun is moving northward and I need to raise the whole setup. For this shot I was using the last ray of sun and got the edge in too. I wish I had my old Photoshop program. I could have fixed that right corner in two shakes.
