I had originally thought I would entitle this piece "Denizons of the Deep", but then after spending quite a few hours beading these silly critters, "Warts 'N' All" seemed much more appropriate. It was fun, but I'm glad it's over.
I found that I could catch up on a few dvd's that I had been wanting to watch while I beaded...that was a treat. It felt rather decadent to be sitting there in my sewing room actually handsewing in the middle of the afternoon. I got to watch a lot of the Swedish cooking dvd by Tina Nordstrom that my cousin Eva sent me. It is terrific! I was pleasantly surprised to hear that it is thankfully in English, but the scenery is almost as much fun to view as the cooking. I hope I can find copies of the recipes at the website. Thanks again, Eva!!
Kristin and Dave had wrapped a recent gift for me in some lovely paper and I saved it because I thought that it might make a nice silk scarf. Here is my adaptation:
I just love all of the color! On a little more subdued note, I painted this one last evening. The combination of the turquoise, royal blue and chartreuse is rather refreshing in the summer heat, don't you think?
Both scarves were both done on silk crepe de chine, using DuPont dyes.
