Swirling Leaves

This is my October doll for BAD. We have agreed to do a doll a month for the next year. Not too bad a deal until you mixed it with BJP and Beaddreamz various challenges as well. Oh well, it's only time and beads. LOL
In truth, I love having all the different projects going on at the same time. It keeps the creative juices flowing. I always did work better under a deadline. Not for me the ordered existence of doing one project at a time and finishing it before starting the next one. Now I just have to come up with some new classes for the LBS. Maybe I will do a class in doll pins. Hmmm. In January, I'm teaching a beaded brooch
class for our Bead Society. That should be fun. We have some very talented ladies in our group.
Off to the County Fair tonite. Our Bead Society has a display in the Gem and Mineral Bldg. All of our pieces use gemstones of some kind. It looks really nice. Get to see Gretchen Wilson tonite. Sure hope it doesn't rain. The weather has done a 180 turnaround in the last 24 hours. It was up in the high 90's yesterday and today our high is supposed to be 70. Should be comfortable walking weather for ambling around the fairgrounds.

The dolls are quick and easy-only 3" tall. I'm still lagging on BJP, but at least I finally got started. LOL
I'm glad you like her.

Hi I love this design. It has some of my favorite colors. Fall is such a great time of year! Thank you for turning me on to this incredible artwork. I posted another comment but it got lost in cyberspace. So I made my own blogspot and now it should work.
I'm new at this. Maybe I should ask my teenage son to help? I am going to start planning the coast today. All I can think about is learning the stitches to do bead embroidery. I am so excited; you have no idea. :) Yeah!! Heidi

The colors are my favorites!

But then I don't think there is a COLOR I don't like?

Love her, Arline -- I thought I left a post here before -- maybe it is on the BJP page -- gad, it's heck to get old and look the memory LOL.

Anyway, love her --
