almost but not quite......

almost but not quite finished~i have to mount this piece to something heavy~search around the 'create room' i know i have something here~i am thinking a heavy card board??~its amazing how all these little glass beads when combined will become pretty heavy~and then i am thinking a picot edge maybe?? or keep it simple and just line the edge with size 8 chartruse beads~ i really enjoyed this bead challenge~making a flat beaded piece instead of having the thick stuffed doll form was fun~and the challenge of using only one color of beads-different hues~and 10% contrast was enjoyable~

I like the bead patterns you created....I'm sure you are very pleased she is almost finished.

Why aren't you beading the back, Tammy? Pick a color, any color. lol I am sorry I started the back of mine. I just want to finish it.

I love this yellow fellow, and yellow isn't even one of my favorite colors. Your doll encourages me to get Yellow myself!

Thanks for sharing him/her with us.

Beadily yours

You did a awesome job on this puzzle doll! I love the colors too! I can relate with flat versus stuffed. I am just doing my first stuffed piece and it is quite the challenge for me...very different than beading flat which I'm used to.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you are feeling better! ;-)

Love the bursts of flowers and the spiral circle on the bottom! Wasn't it fun to do yellow - espcially in the spring when we need that colour so much!
Cheers, Denise
