I won’t bore you with another picture of the snow from our window…but it’s so pretty. Because we live in a tiny house, we can see out the windows on all four sides at the same time…so when you sit on the couch, it’s like living in a snow globe!
Aside from the campground, another passion of mine is bead embroidery. I love to create highly embellished collars with hundreds of different kinds of beads. I started a few years ago, compelled by a cover photo from Bead and Button Magazine of a necklace created by Sherri Serafini…it was love at first sight. It’s a perfect hobby because I can do it anywhere and still be close to the phone for reservations. Yesterday I finished a collar I started in November ’06. The colors are black, oranges, slate blues and purples. For me it evokes the November Coast, walking the beach on a story day at sunset. The ocean turns to a steely, cold blue but the sky glows in dynamic tones of purple, speckled with silver. The because November can still be pretty warm, I included greens in the collar to remind me of the hardy green plants growing along the edge of the beach…not to mention the fir trees that topple right down to the high tide mark.
So with no further ado, here are a picture of my newest bead creation. If you’re curious about others, surf over to the Fiber College website…the link’s on the sidebar.
