Progress on Fiber & Beaded Figure
Last week - I had an unexpected trip to Arkansas, to attend to some family issues and got a chance to do some very focused beading on the figure that I have been working on - and after a good 8 hours of beading -my neck is cranky and the piece it is now finished!
Here is a detail of the head and face. I don't yet have a "name" for this figure, but she feels very peaceful. I like how my first attempt at a paper clay face turned out. The piece, took a few turns that weren't expected. The head and hair were difficult to work on the finished and stuffed piece and I moved to a curved beading needle to keep my sanity.
I am teaching a beading workshop to some friends from the Lake Norman Quilter's Guild in my studio in the next few weeks and I am happy to have a new piece to show the crowd.
