Fancy Folk

It is the last Thursday of the month and time for StitchNewEngland’s Fancy Folk Zoom. Pam started it last year and I have been able to join except while at sea (we will NOT discuss the low bandwidth on Windstar).

Anyway – I decided it was time to start with the beading on the Nora Corbett Zodiac Girls – starting with this morning I worked on three of them and managed 200-400 beads on each-

there are beads hanging from her horns, edging all the flower blossoms and cascading from her hands. And, as it turns out – I still have some Kreinik to add (blah)

I managed all the draping beads and along her hair and hands. But you see those three little squares up there? I have about 10 more to stitch. And bead….

Maybe next month?

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
