At last something to share. It seems like ages and ages.
Mairi received my Fair and Square round 6 offering –
It’s a German online freebie that was charted for pinks, but since Mairi is a purple fan I switched out the colors. I’ll get back to you on the site for the pattern since I can’t find it right now.
The pattern can be found at Borduurblad.
And from Mairi I got these stunning squares and goodies:
Can you believe how pretty her vase of flowers is? Check it out close up:
See? Absolutely lovely!!! Aren’t I the lucky one?
Sonda received her PIF yesterday so I can safely show you now –
The fabric is one of the Wichelt overdyed jobelan’s… Watercress, I think. The thread is a purple Carrie’s one of her limited editions. The beads are some gold powwow offerings.
Last weekend was another powwow weekend for me, and it was as wonderful as usual. Ok, so I got a bit sunburned because I forgot the rule about not wearing caps with light colored under brims (reflection is a pain!!!), but I think I might make it out without peeling. Sun idiocy aside, check out how visually cool everything was –
First the Tiny Tots division takes the field -- too cute, aren't they--
Then there's my favorite shawl dance --
In case you ever contemplate beading-- the neck piece on the woman in the red shawl, the one with the eagle on it, is all beads.... ALL beads. Little, tiny beads by the thousands.
Yes, I now the night shots are “different” but I like them.
My other favorite, fancy dancers, in action --
Also, powwow is my big bead shopping event of the year and I came away with a nice pile –
There was even a new badger, but I’ll have to picture that another day since somehow I forgot to take that shot.
