I just can't get enough of beading -- and working on more than one project at a time is a great stimulus for me --- soooooo, I have joined a beaded doll round robin. The theme of the round robin in Summer Magic. The doll's name is "Blossom". The little form pictured has a head that may or may not be beaded as a flower (the beaders choice) and her arms are shaped like leaves -- again, whoever beads that section may see it differently -- that's what will make it so much fun -- I just put her in the mail today for the first stop in the RR. I will update the blog as I receive photos. I made her form from fabric I had found earlier in the week at an Historical Society Flea Market -- the face has a butterfly on it -(I wish I could remember where I got the face -- I have two others like it but with different colored butterflies). She is summery, yes? She is traveling with a booklet for the beaders to write in. (On the mailing route sheet, in the photo I have smudged out the names and addresses of the other RR beaders for privacy sake)

Wish I could bead this.....
Four youngest grandsons, ages 11, 9, almost 7 and almost 5, silhouetted against the blue of a contemporary piece of art being displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago. I sure wish there had been computers, digital photography, etc. when the three older grandsons were young. They are grown up now and live 2000+ miles away in San Diego.

This will be a 3 x 3 inch square. I'm debating taking out the bugles -- so will hold off finishing for a little while. I have begun my 3 x 3 square for July while I ponder the bugle delima. Since this is all a learning process I may just leave them and go from there. This is really a wonderful project -- thanks again, Robin, for getting it going.
