Added a little to Black & White

Even though we were on vacation, I was able to add just a few beads to my Black & White (and shades in between) piece. I know it doesn't look like much, but to find even 5 minutes was a challenge -- so I feel good that I was able to add something to it while we were gone.

Pennsylvania Turnpike/ Ohio Turnpike

We just returned from our trip late this afternoon. When we left Pennsylvania the weather was lovely -- by the time we got to Ohio, the weather had changed -- it was raining and there was transverse lightening -- quite a show of colors -- lovely in it's own way, but we were very happy to stop for the night shortly after these photos were taken.

Friendship Doll ~ In Progress

While awaiting more beads to work on my Black & White -- am doing a 'Spirit of Friendship' crazy quilt doll for an exchange. She is pictured here in her very 'undone' state -- the outline is just a guide -- she will be smaller than the outline suggests. There is also a photo of a close up of her face -- the beads are actually almost the same color as the background material but sure don't look it in the photo. Anyway, it is fun to work on these little dolls and always special when they are done for an exchange.

Black, White and in between

Beginning to get some 'feel' to it. The gray beads around the black and white bead and black nail heads in the center portion are size 13 -- having trouble with getting the needle through these holes -- they seem like smaller holes than most of my 15's have.
