Hand Work To Go

Lately I haven't had any studio time.  It is go-go-go around here with all the activities.  What little time I've had at home, I've spent prepping work to go.  Above is all the bead work that I did on my daughter's birthday present.  She loves to draw, so I made her a journal I keep some of her precious sketches.  I'm still debating between the bottom two.  She loves pink and purple, but I really like the splashes of green.  I have two weeks to decide, so I wont worry about it for now.  I did learn the hard way to make sure the bead container is closed tightly. Whoops. At least it was in the storage area in the door of the car when it opened so the mess was contained.  I think I still have a few spare beads rolling around in there--just in case I need some when I'm out and about.

This morning I'm making a bunch of fabric beads.  I'll then have all the little scrolls to tie with ribbon and yarn waiting in the car for when I have a few spare minutes.  At least I shouldn't have to worry too much about them scattering everywhere. 

I actually have a day at home today.  I really need to do a lot of free motion quilting.  I ran my first ever half marathon on Sunday and hopefully my leg wont hurt too bad to push the foot pedal.
