I'm happy to report that the "Dressed Horses Bag" is in the mail. It seems like I was working on it forever, but really it will only be a little late getting to Italy. I was suppose to have it done by Christmas but it just didn't come together in time. Thank you Shira, for your patience. All of the small bead detail on these blinged out guys was very time consuming. It was fun working with this color palette, pinks, reds, and golds! Not my usual fare and I love doing something different! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. On to the new year, starting with a clean bead table. Next up is a little bag with a woodpecker design. I see the little feathered friends at my bird feeder everyday.
