Don't be afraid....I have no photos of my thermometer today!! I'll just say that it's going to be another scorcher and leave it at that. I hope where ever you are that it's cooler and more pleasant than here.

I've been working on my art doll and have a bit more to show you....

Excuse the needle stuck in her and also the lovely background....a brown paper bag!! I was looking for something to put behind her so the colors would show up and as a final resort I just grabbed the bag. No one ever accused me of being a photographer!!

This is a close up of some of the beading. Don't look too close though because I'm not that neat!! I think this is clickable if you want to see it bigger.

My kitties are both mad at me because when I'm beading I don't let them into the studio. Too many chances for a disaster!! So they ignore me now when I come out. LuLu scratches at the door because most of the time when I'm in the studio she keeps me company. Harley must think it's "girl stuff" because he seldom comes in and if he does he strolls around, sniffs everything and then leaves.

I'm off to do more beading. See ya later....


  1. wow-you've really found your niche there Janet. That's going to be so pretty. I've seen those around before but I particularly like your color combination. It's lovely

  2. I love your beading! I'm so impressed with the details you already put on it! The brown bag works perfect as a neutral backdrop... I wish I could send you our weather. They say that we have a heat wave - but I'm wearing long sleeves:-)

  3. I'd like to say I envy you and the weather but I won't and I don't like ours either so I'm not much fun am I.
    But I do like your art doll.

  4. you do beauitful bead work Janet.
    PEace, KAi :) xx

  5. Janet this is coming along beautifully, I love the color combinations! Beading is tedious but the results are so phenomenal. I've wanted to do some beading again (used to make handbags with beaded detail) but I feel like i'm going in 6 different directions already. I CAN'T wait to see how this progresses and then the final doll - spectacular!
    p.s. I know what you mean about nosey cats "hey Mom, what's this? Can I bat it around a while? Knock it over maybe?" LOL!
    Stay cool!

  6. Wow, pretty beading.

  7. I could swear I commented here. I think I am losing my mind.
    I love the doll Janet! I am starting one this weekend. I will show you! When it is done! Show us yours, when it is done!!!

  8. Quite exciting seeing this come about. It is lovely and the colors just sing.

    She is fantastic. I love her. I am less neat than you are whenever I try to bead. Love Hugs and Blessings

  10. That is going to be one beeoooootiful dolly, Janet! Such patience you have. I can't wait to see the finished beadedbabydoll.

  11. WOW!! What beautiful work!

  12. Fantastic Janet
    stay in doors out of the heat
    and bead
    it is so pretty!!!!

  13. Hi Janet,

    I think you've done grrreat! as Tony the tiger used to say. I love the work and the colors. My cat just walked across my tray, my first time beading in a week plus and it is good to be back at it.

  14. You are doing a great job there Janet. And have a real flair for color choice. I can understand you keeping the kitties out while you bead. I can just iamgine them knocking over containers of beads (mine try to do that all the time).
