Tractor Driving Lesson

I know this post is not about beading at all, but I have to share my Birthday surprise gift.
I've always loved tractors and my dream is someday I can have a small farm with lots of tools and tractors. My best friend arranged a surprise gift for me yesterday to have a farmer teach me how to drive a tractor at his farm. It was an amazing experience. My dream came true and I was able to drive a tractor, learned how to use the bucket and even turned the compost. I can't express how much I appreciate this gift.
Thank you!!!

Chinese Dragon Robe Completed

This morning, I finished zipping Chinese Dragon Robe (pattern also made by Sig Wynne-Evans). I finished the whole thing before Christmas, but I didn't have a chance to zip the sides and the arms together before our trip to Indonesia and Japan.
After we got back, things were little hectic and I started the Winter Birds project for my son, so I abandoned the zipping of the robe. Finally, last night and this morning, I completed the robe and now it found a new home in the living room.

Winter Birds

I beaded this beautiful winter birds tapestry ( pattern designed by Sigrid Wynne-Evans), especially for my son who will turn 13 in 2 days. It took me 80 days to  bead this with my busy schedule.
These last 2 weeks I spent extra hours before bed and woke up earlier in the morning so I could sneak into my beading room to bead and tried to finish this before his birthday. I made it just in time. Pheww!!!
This tapestry is measured 10x14.5 inches (28 x 37 cm), 38 delica 11/0 colors and 43600 beads.

Happy 13th Birthday, my precious son!!
