Beaded Starfish

The pattern is here
The top two in my photo are worked in 8/0's and and 11/0's
The bottom right is worked in 11/0's and 15/0's as the pattern calls for
and the bottom left is worked in hex cuts and 11/0's
These are fun to make and work up really fast.

Happy New Year 2009

A cold start to the new year. Ten degrees this morning. I don't know what the wind chill was, but it's pretty darn cold. Ah, but just a couple more days and we'll be on the way to Fla for a couple weeks. I think I have way more beads and projects packed than I'll need but you never know what you'll need.

And my latest bead. I'm waiting for some larger seeds beads in the same colors to make the necklace portion.
