Grandkid quilts and bad batt
Bead Emroidered Neckpieces
Pearls, crystals, seed beeds, dichoic glass, amethyst chips and briolettes, and a quartz cabachon. Still haven't figured out what to do for a 'chain' for this piece-- maybe some kind of a beaded spiral rope?
At the last gem show I went to, I bought a bunch of beautiful agate slices. This one is dyed and measures almost 5 inches. Also pearls, dichroic glass and seed beads. I think it need some brach fringe -- lots of it!

Fractured Quilt Challenge
Got the new issue of Quilting Arts the day before I sent it and would have happily embellished it to kingdom come. I may make another just to play with. The new QA has gobs of surface design techniques!
Closer detail -- Pentel dye sticks, cool threads, pearls, angelina fibers...much fun!

Progress on TJay's table
Work continues on the French braid quilt...
The strips are all done and trimmed -- still have to sew them together and add the birders. Have no idea, where the hell I'm going to find a large enough space to lay out the quilt sandwich and do the basting. It'll be about 110'...

Wednesday -- 90 degrees at PJs
Panorama of the whole mural -- sorry about the glare!
Pat -- the odd-looking thing on the left will be the front of the old chapel at Fahy. Aunt Ann says there's no roof and it's long deserted. I thought it would look cool with the gravestones around it. Also, note that there are 2 Cleary's on the right. Let me know which spot you like better. The cows and sheep will be in that spot just below and to the right of the Campbell house. They're drawn, you just can't see them in the photo... Moo
