I found this pattern "The Good Earth" from JaValle beads few months ago and bought it because I want to make it for my best friend, who loves earth, moon and all the planets. I thought I would not even make it until sometime next year.
But in late October, after I finished beading my son's Three Winter bird tapestry and elephant,
we decided to not buying Christmas gifts this year, instead we'll give each other one small inexpensive gift.
Then I want to make something that's meaningful instead and decided to bead this.
With my busy schedule, usually it takes 3 months or so to bead something this big, but I use my spare time to bead every chance I got and I was able to finish this in 48 days (started on October 26, finished December 13, 2012).
This patterns measured 12x12 inches, using 40 colors of 11/0 delica beads. It's using peyote stitch.
I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year ahead.
