Geisha - in progress
Workin' on the chain gang, lalala...
To describe the last month as "busy" is comparable to calling a category 4 hurricane as "windy with showers."
The day job, folks, is killing me inch by inch. And then there's the endless effort to juggle my own work, keep the house livable, manage to possess at least one clean pair of underwear and keep up with correspondence.
After a binge of earring making - I started playing with my bead charting software this morning.
I bought it a couple years ago because it was nifty and inexpensive and I like to work in square stitch. One quickly tires of graph paper and fatal mistakes one cannot erase. I haven't used the program a lot but since I've recently rediscovered how much fun peyote stitch is - I thought I'd play around this morning and the above, "Geisha" is the result. She's the focal of 2.7 inch wide cuff and I'm at row 43 of 80.
My cat hates me for the lack of attention. I haven't done the ironing. I have hand cramps. But I'm having a ball!
Colors are crappily rendered by my camera - way darker than the piece. I can tell this one if going to be a bear to shoot when it's done!
Hope you're all having a great weekend!
