I'm working on my school project - and it's coming along!

Thanks for the comments everyone! I have all kinds of bead ideas running around in my head and I should have policy running around in my head!
I'm almost finished my paper, then back to beading!!!
What till you see the beads I bought at Out on a Whim Beads!
I'm using them as incentive to finish my honours project! When I'm done, I get to bead with my new beads and the ideas are bouncing around in my head!!!
Cheers, Denise

Picking Up The Pieces - well 1 of them anyway!

Picking Up The Pieces
She has puzzle pieces missing! But she found one, and I think that's all I'm going to add otherwise, it's going to look funny. The puzzle piece has boucle stitching on both sides and is quite tactile. The doll itself is only beaded on one side, and that works for me, cause she's hanging up on the wall. I did back her with another piece of material to cover and protect the stitching though.
I like how she turned out and I like how she is looking down at the piece. I really enjoyed working with the yellow - just what I needed as I watch the snow melt outside. It was a fun project. Hope you enjoy her!
cheers, Denise

In which the Beaded Art Doll Women Inspire Me!

I joined Beaded Art Dolls on yahoo. What an amazing, creative group of women! The latest challenge was to use a flat puzzle shape and bead it a specific colour. Everyone had two choices, they could do yellow plus 10% of a contrasting colour or be randomly assigned a colour. My random colour was red but I've done red, so I went back to the yellow.
What you see here is my tray, with most of my yellow beads, and my beady doll. She's called Picking Up The Pieces, because, as you can see, she's missing a few. They will be beaded and dangling from her arms when this is done.
It's been fun! And relaxing as I continue to work on my thesis.
