She is not Tessie's size. She does miniatures and is one of the Wednesday Witches.
It is spectacular. I didn't have my camera with me, so I will throw in a Eugene Kupjack Dining Room box that I restored in 1986.
I feel honored to have done the work on this room. For those of you that don't know, he is the creator of most all of the Thorne rooms. Narcissa Thorne collected miniatures, and at her direction he did most of the work on her rooms.
Joan and I get along well... We aid and abet each other in collecting things...We both do minis. We both do bead work... If one of us wants to go to a bead shop, the other will follow... At least that was how it was today. Then when someone asks, we have each other to blame. I didn't want to go to a bead shop. Joan made me do it!
Anyway, when I got home, I had to experiment with some super duo beads that I bought. Those are the turquoise ones in the ring that Tessie is trying to rip off of my hand. She seems to think that it should be hers... Isn't everything I make eventually hers?
She's not getting this one. I made it. It's MINE!
I started it with a video on U Tube from Beadfulnights. I got as far as the part where I had to start the band...Then I went off in another direction.
The person doing it, was having trouble with making the ring any size other than a size 8. I needed a nine. So I improvised with the Super Duos. It worked.
I am going to have to do some more experimenting with these two hole beads. They are fun to play with.
I really need to get back to the rug now. I did a little more, but not enough...I only have 30,000+ stitches to go... Wish me luck! I'm going to need it, especially if I keep playing hooky.
See you tomorrow.
