Since most of my tapestries have brown or grey colors, I wanted to make animal that has bright colors. So here is the Flamingo. I had a busy of couple of weeks explaining why for such a small tapestry (3x4 inches or 7.6x10.2cm), it took me more than 2 weeks to do it. This Flamingo used 35 colors of Delica 11/0 beads, total of 3,600 beads.
I'll be making a very big project after this, as big as letter size paper, so it'll be at least more than a month or two until I can post another tapestry project on my blog.

This goose reminds me of a place that I used to go all the time. It was just a few miles away from my house. There was many geese and ducks that swim just as everything in their world is so peaceful. Watching them gave me peace. So this tapestry is my reminder of those time. It measures 6 x 4.3 inches (15.2 x 11 cm) and uses 29 colors of delica 11/0 beads. Total beads used: 7,800 pieces.
