Of course after spending two days at the Santa Fe Bead Show last weekend I had to start beading. How about a kalidecycle? First get out the new beads and let's decide on colors. Looking looking looking. Of course decided on beads from Fusion Beads I ordered a month ago instead of new beads from the Santa Fe Bead show. Next, bead 4 patterns with 6 triangles of each pattern. Here in progress and finally all triangles finished. Now waiting for Wednesday class to learn how to put them together so they move like a kalidecycle. I'll post that one. too.
Some of the beads from the Bead Show in Santa Fe. Triangles are #10 delicas from Fusion Beads I ordered a month ago. Three patterns of 6 each triangles. One more pattern of 6 triangles to make.
The "pick up" silver triangle on the left by the scissors will give you beaders an idea of the size of the triangles.
All triangles complete. I put a few #11 delica triangles to the left to give you an idea how small the kaleidoscope would be if I used #11 delicas. And #10's so much easier on the eye. TAnd the beading above this is a beaded feather in progress. All of my projects are either "in progress" or UFO's (unfinished objects).
Cynthia and I spent hours at the Santa Fe Bead Show yesterday. And we bought some shiny beads. I forgot the one thing I was there to buy #10 delicas. Back today, but couldn't talk Cynthia into joining me. It was OK, I visited with lots of addicts like me who have no desire to get help for our problem. Bought more shiny shiny beads. Having too much fun to remember to buy the #10 delicas, again.
Plus, I got to meet a real Fairy Princess (aka Beading Addict in Training).
Fun day fiber weaving with two great friends/artists. Cynthia hosted in her studio. We made a great mess and greater fun. Most of the supplies bought at Santa Fe artists' sales. The three of us decided to teach each other from classes, workshops and even you tube videos. Having too much fun with my two Cynthias. I'm working to become an honorary Cynthia. Stay tuned for future learning days and more Lottie Logic. And as always I must thank Delbert Beckham for coming up with the phrase "Lottie Logic". He sees logic where there is none.
Someone said I was delusional. I nearly fell off my unicorn.
