Koala tapestry, Feb 28, 2014

I finished my Koala tapestry project this evening. I started this on November 29, 2013, but stopped right before I went on vacation on December 22, 2013. I made Chinese Panel 1 instead during my trip and finished it first after my trip, then went back working on this Koala.

This pattern is designed by Maddiethekat, measures 5.80 x 7.20 inches (14.7 x 18.3 cm).
It uses 23 colors of Delica 11/0 Seed Beads with total beads of 12,528. This tapestry is made using peyote stitch.

Feb 10,14 lampwork fish beads

I haven't torch for a while. It's been cold and busy. Last night after I got off work, I decided to take a little time to relax and torch. I made 2 little fish beads. I kind of broke one bottom front fin of the orange bead, but they still look cute to me.

Sunset Desert Fan Lamp, Feb 7, 2014

The last 2 days have been winter snowstorm in Oregon. I only worked half day yesterday due to the snowstorm and the school let out early.
So I decided to make another fan lamp which reminds me of warmth. Well, actually hot desert.

Here it is, desert during Sunset fan lamp.

Swan Fan Lamp, Feb 1, 2014

I found a very cute and elegant pattern online for swan and decided to make it. I wanted something a bit different, soothing colors of sunset. It has 32 pieces of glass.
I think I will give this one for youth ministry auction in May 2014, to help youth ministry to go on mission trip this Summer.
