Lazy Summer Daze...

It is July and Summer is half gone. I never seem to accomplish much during the Summer. The heat and the humidity seem to grab every ounce of creativity in me and toss it aside like a limp noodle. A limp piece of pasta is about what I feel like from the beginning of the heat until the Fall frost cools our little part of the world back to livable temperatures.

So - I've stayed inside except for the gardening and mowing. Mostly in front of my computer accomplishing much of nothing. I did find a cool spot this week to work on some of the many cameos I've managed to collect. I tend not to buy just one or two of anything when I can get 6 or 8. Below are 3 of the finished products.

All three are done with a combination of bead embroidery and Peyote stitch. I used 11/0 seed beads, 15/0 Miyuki beads and 3mm Czech fire polished beads in the creation of these brooches. They turned out quite nicely, if I do say so myself. Hope you like them.
