Bead Stacks in Need of Viagra!

OK...so I've learned my lesson...no matter what I want to do, sometimes it's better to wait just a bit! I was so excited when I started this month that I plopped down those tall stacks w/o thinking! So now, after weeks of working around them, they're all flopping over! See?


So, after I get all done, I'll go back & reinforce them so they can stand tall & erect again! :)


The next thing that happened was that I ran out of black seed beads! I have a "starry night" sky to finish here! Come on! So I took out my Delicas & started to outline all the "fireworks" with them. Tedious tiny little things! Then my pal, Azlina, sent me some black beads from Malaysia! So now I can work on filling in the background with bigger beads. See? The beads on the right are the Delicas & the ones on the left are from Azlina. Now, if that's not enough, well, then there's always the Ben Franklin craft sale tomorrow!!



So this is where I'm at this evening! Once the background is in, I'll put on a SIMPLE border & be done!

My pal sent me a card once that said, "You are a human sparkler!" It's how I've always felt inside! But sometimes I need to calm down. So I think you'll be seeing some ROCKS next month! Time for grounding!!!

Glad to see you've got the beads to keep you going! Yeah, delicas are pretty small for a sky. Rocks for next month huh? Can't wait to see what you do with that one.

My pal Lynda, who is not a blogger, asked me to post this for her!

"This is what I tried to add to your blog but I was having to sign up to too many things - can you add it for me?

This multi-task, strung tight as a piano string, stitcher loves every bead of the busy multi colored art work. Looks like I feel on the inside when I'm trying to get a piece finished. I love the excitement. Great Job! And good to hear you got worked up - you are too calm anyway. HEHEHEHE! Love you, Lynda"

CC said...

OK...Lynda! See, these other people think I'm a wild & crazy lady! Yet you think I'm too calm! So what does that make you??? Hehehe!!! LOL!
Thanks all for your comments! I love looking at everyone else's blogs too! I wish I had the time right now to comment on all the other beautiful work I'm seeing. Hopefully soon!
And, Jo, can't wait to see your fishes!
With aloha, CC
