    Besides quilting, I love counted cross stitch, canvas work and as you can see beading. Here are a few pictures of my beaded animals. Unfortunately the colors do not aways show up true. I have made about 40 different ones.

    Thank you - they are so much fun to make, I never know what the finished product will look like until the final bead goes in.
    I currently have an order for 15 dolls so have been really busy on them.

    SPARE time???? I've done beading -- if I did those I'd have NO time for quilting, cooking, cleaning, eating, going to the bathroom.......... Good job! I'm impressed!

    They're all fantastic, especially like the Oregon duck. And you quilt too? Amazing.

    The cleaning takes a back burner to everything in my house, the cooking has been reduced to almost anything that can be done in half hour (DH grills a lot!), the bathroom, of course, is a necessity (lol).

    Those are adorable and must take up a lot of time.
    You do lovely work and I know that I could never duplicate yours.
    Keep on showing us your charming creations.
