Ravoli Lace


I have been busy and this is the first piece that is completed this week. It is lovely shades of peacock blue with a gorgeous large ravoli in the center. I finished off the ravoli with a lace "skirting" on each side. I closed it with a wide gold clasp. On the lace I started with a dark blue/green size 15 (very small) bead and graduated up to a lighter ruffle. This is all on top of a peyote base of even darker & larger peacock shaded beads.
Are there ever days when you can't quite get anything completed? Well, today is my day for numerous projects with the house cleaning nagging in the back of my mind. I started on covering a letter holder that I have been wanting to do. I forgot to take a picture of it before I started. My goal was to make into a Vintage/Victorian dresser set. It is coming along but it took me until 2:00AM to finish covering just the base. Now I am studying it to see what comes next. I want to add Vintage accessories to add to it but nothing has "hit" my creative juices yet.
I also have a square box that will be lovely once it is done. I made some organza roses in brown, white, pink & mauve and I thought I would use one of them on the top.
I also have a frame to finish for my daughters Mothers day gift from the silhouettes of my grand daughters.
So as you see I have numerous unfinished projects that I MUST get to. I want to make one thing at a time and try to forget that my list is growing by the minute. I was going to include pictures of the desk letter holder and the box but now my battery is dead on my camera and I have to charge it. I guess, I will leave all of this mess (while my battery is charging) and go take a nap. As nothing is coming together I will lay down and try to regroup. Once my camera is charged and I can get the pics I will post the update....a nap is on schedule...zzzzzzzz
