sparkling icosahedrons

Center ball made from a pattern in Shaped Beadwork and Beyond by Diane Fitzgerald.  The other two balls use the same pattern and beads, just different color arrangements.

Well, it will be a bracelet when I get the back on it and add a clasp.  From a class with Kinga Nichols.

3-D ATC

This week I was challenged to create a 3-D ATC.  Intriguing, but ATCs are flat!  I store them in plastic trading card pages, they have to be flat.  So I layered that restriction on the idea of a tiny, ATC-sized, fabric sculpture, realized that meant creating something interactive, with parts that move, and…  MAGIC!  So here is the first of many ideas that came to me:

60 Day Bird Challenge – Day 56


I’ve been watching the spotted sandpipers every day at the lake.  In their non-breeding plumage, they actually don’t have spots, but these small birds still blend well with the rocks at the water’s edge.  They move quickly along the shore foraging, and would  be difficult to spot except that they seem to call every time they take flight.
