New/old work ... and some more cats
Here's a piece that I actually began working on in early July, when we went to Chautauqua, New York, for a week. On the long car ride there, I attempted two or three bead combos but didn't get anything I liked, and kept frogging. (Do beadweavers say "frogging," or is that strictly a knitting term?)
Once we were at our destination, I played around a little more and got this Cellini spiral started, and worked on it on the drive back. Once I got back home, I found my bead swap beads from Dot waiting for me, and knew I shouldn't distract myself from creating my bead soup necklace, so this has set on a corner of the bead table. But I can pick it up again now.
Interestingly, the beads Dot sent me were in mostly browns and greens, and I already had pulled out all of my beads in those colors for this experiment, so they were easily accessible for adding to the bead soup I made for Daphne of the Woods.
And I do have one quick update to the cat humor I featured last week. I learned from the FB post of a friend who lives in St. Paul about the Internet Cat Video Filmfest at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. (I thought it was a spoof, but no!) Here's a link to New York Times coverage of the event.
