Chinese Panel 1 Tapestry, January 30, 2014

I started this project (and stopped my Koala tapestry project) because I wanted to do this project during my long flights and my stay in Indonesia in December. It has 7 colors, so it's easier for me to do it during travel.
5 weeks later, I finally finished this tapestry.

The pattern is made by Sigrid Wynne-Evans and it's called Chinese Panel 1. I also have her Chinese Panel 2 pattern, and will make it sometime soon (after I finish my koala tapestry).
It measures 4.10 x 10.13 inches (10.4 x 25.7 cm), using peyote stitch with 12,464 delica 11/0 beads.

Just in time for Chinese New Year tomorrow!!  Gong Xi Fat Choi!!!

Jan 25-26, 2014 more ice cream beads and lots of pink beads

I had great time torching this weekend.

On Saturday, I made 2 more ice cream cones : mint chocolate chip and vanilla with chocolate syrup. Yummm.  And I also practice making tiger striped bead which I learned from watching youtube from hotglass channel. Turned out pretty although it was my first time making black and white twisty stringer.

On Sunday, I kind of in the "pink mood" so I decided to make everything pink and with grey combination (my favorite combination color with pink). I made feather bead using pink and grey, learned to trap bubble and using aventurine to make sparkly bead.
