Beading

Yesterday I got busy beading. As you know all of my family drama has meant that I have slipped behind with my swap commitments. I am now seriously holding up the beaded doll RRs that I'm in so I thought it was about time I did something about it.

I sat and beaded my part of two dolls yesterday, yes it was a mamouth effort and I have a stiff back today to prove how long I sat in the same position, lol! Sadly I didn't manage to get any pictures of the work I've done before we lost the light and images with the flash just don't work on these dolls as there are too many sparkly bits.

As I don't like to post too often without pictures I thought I'd share some closeups of the faces of the dolls that I have with me at the moment. I took these pics before I started working on the dolls myself.
As you can see I've a lovely variety of dolls vacationing with me at the moment. I have really enjoyed being part of these round robins but I think it will be a while before I join another. My beading skills are just poor compared to the other ladies who have been working in these robins so it's just highlighted that I need a lot more practised at this before I dare to do anything like it again.

Those dolls look fab - the 2nd face particularly appeals to me. You may not feel your beading skills are up to the standards of some of the other participants, but I bet you'll have improved loads by being involved with the RRs :)

Or maybe what we need is a beaded doll RR for people who are less confident about their beading skills. I'm sure you could find at least one other person who would be interested - but who that girl could be I just don't know...
