a new "slice of life"
this little drawing is the latest in the series and it's titled "The Entry Way" -- when I was a little girl the house I spent the most time in was my grandmother's -- you came in the front door into a long narrow room -- on one side was the old, upright piano, and on the other side under the 6 over 6 windows was a row of white bookcases that my grandfather built -- on top of those were pots full of violets that my grandmother lovingly tended (it's funny that even now almost 60 years later I can close my eyes and see this room -- and every other room in that house)
so yesterday I did the bead embroidery on the second one -- today I should be able to get the backing onto both of these and start the next part -- I'm going to try doing right angle weave with the tiny size 15 beads -- we'll see how that goes
