Won Annual Bead Giveaway from Sigrid Wynne-Evans

We came back from 10-day trip to Japan and Indonesia yesterday.
I held my mails while we were gone and got them all delivered yesterday. I received a package full of beads with a nice card saying I won annual bead giveaway chosen randomly by Sigrid Wynne-Evans.
Thank you!!!  Sigrid is one of my favorite bead pattern artist/maker and her patterns motivated me to keep beading and brought smiles to me and others.

Have a Happy New Year, everyone!!!

My Dragon Robe Stand

I got an early Christmas present for my Chinese Dragon Robe. My friend made the stand from scratch. It's so beautiful. Thank you sooo much!!
Now it'll take me a little while to sew the sides and arm together to make it real 3D robe.
The robe measures 17 inches wide and 11 inches length, pattern made by Sigrid Wynne-Evans.
With that note, I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!!

Front side of the Chinese Dragon Robe is finished

After 59 days working on the front side of Chinese Dragon Robe, at any little chance I got , it's finished. I can breathe and sigh in relieve and enjoy the beauty of it now.

The whole back and front robe took me almost 5 months and it's not over yet. I will still need to combine the front and the back while waiting for my stand to finish, then I'll need to combine the side while it's on the stand. What a great big project it was.

Animal Series 2011

I finally found a perfect frame for all animal tapestries I made in 2011.
I'll hang it inside my new "beading room" soon.
