Goldwork progress on Flora's block

I've been stealing stitching time in the car and while waiting for appts. etc.  It's amazing what 15-20 minutes here and there adds up to...  I carry a cheap folding TV tray in my car trunk so I can bead anywhere...

I'm using beads, braid, and cording so far...  I plan to do a gold and black stumpwork bee where the little X is.








And the farm report is that all the snow is gone except behind the barn and it was beautiful today but down to 16 degrees tonite.  This gorgeous sunset was the view from my kitchen window last night..





And this morning one of my many hawks was using my gatepost for a lookout..  This is a sharp-shinned hawk who are wizards at skimming in among the trees and live mostly on gophers and field mice. We have mainly the sharp-shinned, the red tail and the Cooper's hawk.  They are territorial and are here year round.

Gorgeous block and gorgeous sunset Gerry. We're just digging out of a foot of new snow that fell over the weekend :(.

That gold work is stunning! I like to take things to work on wherever I go as well. Drives me nuts if I'm stuck somewhere with nothing to stitch! Have a great day. ; )

I enjoyed seeing your sunset. Aren't the hawks magnificent creatures. Can't wait until all our snow is gone.

I so love these motifs you do in the circles, Gerry! This one is another stunner!

Beautiful! Even without the bee, but I think the bee will really bring it to life.

Glad to see you're beading on the move! Your block is beautiful and I love the idea of a stumpwork bee...

And your hawks and sunsets make that farm look like paradise!

Oh to be there and stitch with you! The goldwork is gorgeous, but we’ve come to expect nothing less. Do all those beads add a lot of weight? I’m with Kerry on the circle motifs - always breathtaking! Can’t wait to see the bee. Hugs, Cathy
