More sneak peak....BFAC
I actually ran out of beads from the Beading for a Cure kit! I had purchased additional beads because I knew I wanted to do a bigger piece than last year, but after running out of tube extra tubes of the size 11 orchids, I decided I needed some help. I went onto my Delphi Group "All About Beads" & let the girls there know that I needed more beads. Instantly, Gretchen responded & told me she had both the translucent & the matt...yippee! I know, but I still won't haven enough so Tracey said she had part of another tube...I jumped on that too. I still hope there is enough to finish the beaded hair. I finished the "baby" with what Gretchen sent, but haven't started to complete the head of hair. Usually I like longer hair on a doll, but the weight would have made the doll topple over, so I gave her shorter curly hair. I still need to finish more surface embellishment on the Mother & then use the crystals for a fringe for the Baby. I have until August 3rd to finish, get pictures and mail her off. Whew...but I can get it done. I'm leaving next Wednesday for a week out in Seattle visiting my friend Cynthia & would really like to get it done before I leave. Don't know if I can do that as even though I have the next three days off from work, I'm going to take my Mom up to Holmes County Thursday as she's never seen the Amish (plus I want to get more wool felt in Berlin & Chris wants to try out his new camera), and Friday I'm working a full shift at Byzantium. Oh and barbeque at my cousin's on the 3rd...work four more days, pack, mail stuff...and try to bead & relax. I'm tried just writing about it. But anyway...this is for Gretchen & the girls on Delphi-Mother's Love. By the way, if you want to know how big this doll is, I just measure her & she is 14 inches tall.
