Doll Journey: Timing
If there is anything I have learned about beading, it is how much time it really takes to accomplish something. After all, the main reason I pursued beading was because it consumed more of my time, which slowed ME down. I naturally zoom through life and that is NOT always a good thing.
I have learned to pace myself or to set realistic goals when something needs to be done.
What exactly HAS to be done by WHEN?
I decided that both legs needed to be beaded by the 18th so that I can bead the back and arms just before putting on the wings and feathers. Somewhere in there, the hair has to be figured in. I am still up in the air on that one because it will catch on everything but then again so will the feathers.
I am almost done with both legs! I am going to stick my neck out to get some of the back done before I crash tonight. I am going to need a little leeway for the hair and or feathers.
Here is how it looks to this moment.
|Just a little more to do under on the back of the calf and at the knee.|
|This isn't the most recent, but it shows the flow of the scrolls so nicely!|
Here are the first 7 packages of feathers to arrive.
The ladies from BeadDreamz (and DBS) have graciously donated a bit of their time to give this doll wings to fly. Each package here contains more feathers than I initially asked for. They beaded until they couldn't bead anymore. One lady even beaded all but the last 4 15's onto a feather because she totally ran out of beads at that point! (Thanks Debra you rock and have a great sense of humor!)
I can see her done! I cannot wait until you can too!
