I have more finished key rings to show off, too. I MIGHT bead another one or two, it didn't take THAT long.
This afternoon I decided that it was time to get back to the river challenge that will be displayed at the Pamlico River Quilters Guild meeting in September. I had a brainstorm about how to make the treetops in the distance. Plastic bags! I found a couple of green ones, then cut and scrunched and melted (between two Teflon sheets). I also decided to take the easy way out and STENCIL my seagulls. Here the freezer paper stencils are ironed on and the tree tops have been glued. I still need to figure out tree trunks and what to put in the foreground.
