7 French Beaded Flowers

7 flowers, 245 florets, 6,860 beads and lots of wire later, I finished my next custom order:
Modeled after Queen Anne's Lace but shaped a little more like domes per the customer's request.

I think last week was the first time in awhile that I did not blog at all. Thank you for all the nice comments on the bag I decorated for the bridal shower--it was a big hit, and my daughter & I really had a great day.

The next book in the Friesen Project is Birds--one I know I will enjoy. Hopefully, I'll have something to show a little later in the week.

On a sad note, my last remaining aunt is now in hospice care. I've been trying to keep busy and not think too much about what I know is not too far down the road. This is the part of life nobody likes, but we all go through it at some point. Knowing that, comforts me.


see you there! said...

Another wonderful beading job. Sorry to hear about your aunt, it hard to let go of the older generation.

These are gorgeous!

Know what you mean about not wanting to think about her nearing the end. With each anniversary, I try to think of the happier times and not dwell on the suffering. They are going/have gone before us, and we will have joy again.

I am so sorry about your aunt Debbie. I often think that the love we have for someone also gives us grief when life ends. You are in my prayers.
