Update on the Heart Purse

Well, it isn't a purse yet, but it is getting closer. This is the top of the purse. I have had to change the way I am making the purse because it is too hard on the bead work to try and twist the purse inside out after stitching it together. I had it half way stitched when I figured that out. Oh, well, that is what happens when you try new things. Hope you like it.

My big winner at the NE State Fair is

The one with the five cabochons. I have already started planning new pieces, but I have a lot to do for the wedding also. My niece gets married in 11 weeks. I have to finish the love stones, the DVD and the purse. Hope everyone is doing well.

Research on Roses

I wanted to make a rainbow rose trellis necklace, so I was doing research on the different colors that roses are. I found two different green roses. I didn't find what I would call a real blue rose, so I have to exercise my right as a creative artist for that one. I was amazed by how many different roses there are.

Other than the research I have been trying to get my living room so that it doesn't look like it was taken over by beads and a bead artist. I know that there are lots of people that have more beads than I do--I just don't know any of them.
