Time flies....

Gee it's now more than a week since I began this blog.. Time sure flies when you're busy & I have been busy in my garden & have peas, sweetcorn, lettuce & tomatoes planted so far along with carrot & radish seed all in a row - well 2 rows really - we are looking forward to eating salads from my garden this year, I have only ever grown tomatoes & swiss chard before so this is a new adventure.


I have been beading too & have all but finished a doll that I started for the Bead Art Forum's Beaded Heart Swap - due back in February but I lost my inspiration for a while. Anyhow here she is.... Miss Heart of Gold I'm kinda pleased I didn't get her done for the swap, as she is much bigger than the hearts that did make it in time. She stands a little over 5" tall & is 2" wide - She still needs a few final touches but I couldn't resist showing her off
I still have to get what I am doing for Robin's Bead Journal ready & I still haven't worked out how to post on the Bead Journal Project yet. I guess I need to ask someone how to go about doing that... OK, that was easy Bobbi helped me out, thanks Bobbi ;9

Ellen, Miss Heart of Gold is terrific! Very unique and artistic. =o)

The first doll I ever started was Heart of Gold, also. She's all pink, white and gold, and I'm still working on her from time to time. I've finished several since I started her, but she will always be with me so I can take my time and do her up right.

Best of luck with your new plants, and enjoy all the goodies from your garden!

Your heart turned out amazing!! Love the vibrant colours! It's going to be fun to watch this blog - post pictures of your greenhouse would you? I want to see the set up you've been describing!
Cheers, Denise

Hey lone beader, I LOVE your 3D stuff especially the firetruck because it has inspired me to make a campertruck for my DH's birthday. It's a classic '65 Chev 'cab & chasse' & the other love of his life LOL Waving from the Pacific coast in Wa

Hey Denise, she did turn out well, eh? I am working on a little lighthouse right now but I need to finish her off totallyt. Joe has cut a piece of plexiglass for the base to sit on as she is top heavey. Do you want pics of inside the green house or of the propagation beds, which are outside?

Hi Ellen!

I absolutely adore your unique beaded heart knob throb... It's adorable! I am one who isn't all that gung ho on hearts but this is really won me over! This is too beautiful for words and I love how unique you made her. You certainly have put lots of meditative thoughts into it as well as all of your love. It shows. I'm absolutely thrilled you have a blog! I'll add you on my blog! :-)
