Getting ready to Cruise!!

Countdown to Bead Cruise!!
This is my countdown weekend to the cruise. I've made my plans for pick-up in Houston and a ride to Galveston (thanks to one of my ex-doctors who is now in Houston) on Sunday, March 25. Hubby and I will be in our little room in steerage (just kidding - it's perfectly acceptable!). Soon, I'll be taking classes (from great instructors like Sharilyn Miller, Rachel Nelson-Smith, Dona Anderson, Beverly Herman and Heather Powers) while on the Bead Cruise.

It will be nice to have skies and water like this:

And to put my feet in water like this:And not have weather like this:

Religious Icons

Here is what is completed so far.
Each icon is about 7x8 inches square. I still need to complete a cross for Christianity, but that is going to wait a little while. I want to work on some other pieces in my mind!

Ganesha and I are finished.....

....Finished only in the sense that my bead embroidery has finished. Ganesha and I have had some really good times together. He has evolved and grown through the months and really turned out better than I expected. It's rich, textural and just ..... become one of my favorite pieces.

Now off to see what beads I want to play with next!
