Packing away until next Christmas.....

Packing away the Christmas decorations, I thought to take a photo of this Santa that I made about 15 years ago. At that time I made about 10 of them -- most were smaller than this one that I kept for myself. He has joined us to celebrate Christmas ever since.

Wonderful Quote

I was surfing blogs this morning and friend and super beader, BeadBabe, had the following quote on her blog.

"I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it." (Vincent Van Gogh)

I really relate to that --- sometime I will stay with just one phase and perfect it --- but in the meantime it is so exciting to reach out and try new things.

Thanks, BB, love the quote.

Cloth Dolls

ZELDA, a cloth doll I made for a "bed doll" challenge.

No new beaded items today -- but I was cleaning out photos from the computer and came across a Picture Trail album I set up a long time ago. You might enjoy seeing some of the dolls I made. Just click on JACKIE's PICTURE TRAIL for more photos.

Blue Monday

I am diligently working on 3 small RR crazy quilt blocks. I had stitcher's block -- have finished one of them and almost done with a second and now just have a block as to what to add. Sooooo, I worked on a little spirit doll. The form was already made (I have several forms in reserve) so it was just a matter of adding a few beads. Working on "Blue Monday" seems to have cleared the fog --- now I have ideas for the blocks --- yippee!!
