Beginning Of The Bead Lusting.

Yes, This is the one that started it all.  I love her and every week or so I take her out and fondle and fawn and pet.  Sick I know but I can't help it!  I think she is beautiful.  She is hand embroidered and beaded.
Her tail feathers remind me of a peacock.  I used gold thread and royal blue pearl cotton for the french knots.

She measures roughly 5x5", is backed by felt and her hanger is beaded and knotted.  I was thinking maybe a 3x3" would make nice christmas tree ornaments.

Just a quick recap of bird number 2.  She was a gift for Becky.
Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I just wish Merchant & Mills would open their online store already!

  2. And I love my bird, she is gorgeous, lives in my guest room at home in the states. Analisa has taught me this craft, it's great fun, we've spent a couple of mornings doing the beading so I've learned that she worked a long time on this bird. Thanks Analisa...I know you love me!!!!!

  3. I'm so glad Becks! I'm happy to enable you further! I'm sure Tom is cursing me right about now. lol
