I started a new painting of a woman holding flowers today. I was working on it outside until about 10 AM when the temperatures skyrocketed again. I think it was 100 degrees today. The whole state is under an energy alert notice to avoid brown outs.
I'm also beading a mermaid on my loom, but I don't have the color for the arms yet so I had to stop until I get some.
I finished the 'Dead Men Tell No Tales" beadwork but now I have to decide if I want to turn it into a necklace or a hatband. It's going to be hard to read wrapped around a neck.
I got the roving I ordered from Etsy, so I'll be able to work on my felted juggling balls tomorrow. They are ready to go through the wash again, and then I can start adding colors.

Unfortunately I haven't had the time to make any yet. I think I did make two but I don't know where I've squirreled them away. Anyway, if you have some, post yours, and I'll make some when I get time.
Anyway, I ended up getting the red seed beads I needed at a Michaels. So I've started working on the fringe for the Sundancer doll. Now I'm really enjoying it.
I also picked up at Michael's some animal print clay beads for a future project. And I got some little star shaped, heart shaped, and flower shaped wooden boxes to paint and sell on Etsy.

As I was working on it, my boyfriend told me the Indian shop at Hobby City is going out of business, and I know they carry a full line of seed beads in every color of the rainbow, so I plan to go check out their sale tomorrow (if they are even open on a Mon.). I haven't gotten to do beadwork in a while so it's good to be working with it again.
