This is my addition to Susan F's doll, Magia del Verano (Summer Magic).
This is a 100% beaded doll round robin. When I received Susan's adorable little doll, she had her face in place, This is a very nice doll form and stuffed very tightly. It was a lot of fun to work on -- this is my first beaded doll RR and I really enjoyed working on Magia del Verano. Susan requested warm colors --- to reflect her Arizona summers -- I may have gone up a few degrees in my colors and ended up hot. From here the doll travels to Indiana for more beading.

At last I was able to squeeze out a little extra time and did some more beading on Orange Julia. Her hair is almost complete. I will be glad to start a new phase on her -- so many pretty orange beads just waiting to be used ;-)

You can imagine my surprise when Donetta honored me with this award. Thank you, Donetta, you made my day -- I am not worthy of such an award, but I will pass it on later this week to those who so truly deserve it. [The dolls for the women's shelters was started by Pat Winter -- already a recipient of this award -- and justly so] Thanks again, I appreciate the thought very much.

And then there were three....
Also did one more bracelet. They are addicting :-)

I did get to do another bracelet right away -- I like these colors -- go well with jeans. I don't have the thread tails done, but the lighting was better this morning for a quick photo.
Here's a pic of the two bracelets together -- these are such fun to make --

See, told you I couldn't get enough of beading. I saw a class was being offered at a bead shop not too far from me -- and, since I had never done a bracelet, thought I would give it a try. I loved it --- and the best part was all 8 who were in the class came home with a finished bracelet -- and all were really lovely. The different color combinations really change the look of this piece. Thank you Debra, it was a great class. Tonight I hope to make another so I don't forget how to do it.
(I did get another bracelet done tonight -- this one is in 'denim blues'. Hope to get a photo of it tomorrow)

This should also be a fun challenge --- only shades of orange beads with one highlight color (mine will be a coppery brass color) may be used. This is for a bead-a-long and in the end, the finished doll stays with the maker -- so, Orange Julia will be mine ;-) I have even more orange and shades of orange beads -- so don't know for sure what all will be used. The fun of the beading journey. This little project will be my "take along" and "when I need a break" way of relaxing. I think it will be a blast.
