Where does the time go?

My new cabochon

Another week has sped by. As usual I find that I have not managed to do all the things I intended, apart from the retail therapy. I bought four selection boxes of gorgeous little triangle beads  from the Bead Merchant. Then I found this wonderful and very unusual glass cabochon by Lynne Lane at Fired Glass on Ebay. Not sure what it will be made into, but it seems to suggest something exotic, oriental, like the patterns on a kimono. I’ll try to get some sketches done next week 
Clarice - trimmed and ready to be edged

Clarice is coming along well. I have trimmed the embroidered panel, and need to attach the backing and do the beading to the edge. Then the strap to work on. I have decided on woven sections interspersed with more bead embroidered sections.
This is the first time I have done bead embroidery on 'Lacy's Stiff Stuff'. i must say I do like it, I have not had a single needle break and I like being able to colour the design on the surface before beading. I may back this piece with Ultrasuede - also a first for me. Onwards and upwards as they say.
