                                               Happy Fourth of July!!!

I finished this giraffe tapestry today. It measures 2.80 x 4.40 inches (7cm x 11 cm), using 17 colors of 11/0 Delicas, a total of 3,344 beads. I learned some facts about giraffe. Their average height is 15-17 feet tall (wow, 3 times my height). The giraffe has one of the shortest sleep requirements of any mammal, which averages 4.6 hours per 24 hours (just like me). Healthy giraffe lives about 25 years in the wild.


  1. Hi -

    I enjoyed looking through your blog at all your 'ornaments' and framed pieces.

    Thank you so much for the eye-candy.
