Beaded Arrow

I just finished the beaded arrow. It could be used as an applique, sewn to a hat or a quiver for example. Or I can put a back on it and use it as a brooch. I quite like it and can't wait to try it in other color schemes or even on leather.

Green Arrow Pin

Today I started working on a green arrow  pin, trying to keep my sanity during all this packing and sorting. It's taken on a surrealistic quality and feels like it will never be done. Maybe I died and went to hell but instead of flames its endless stuff I have to sort and label.

So to keep from going insane I started a beading project with a handful of supplies. It's late so I'll add a photo another time.

Lucerne Valley Or Bust

Lately I've been really into beading felt hands and hearts and such and turning them into ornaments or pins. It's always a delight to work with little beads and sparkly things and real stones. Sometimes I give them as gifts but I hope to list some in my Etsy shop when I'm done moving. I hate the endless packing and drudgery of moving but it will be great in the long run. At least when I'm not baking in the desert. I'm looking forward to the first snowfall.
