This book, Faces in Places, was just published and I have 5 photographs in it.

Yesterday's production. I think the black one is the nicest one so far. So tasteful...
|I think I want a jacket out of this fabric.|
|Not my kind of color/print, but I think people will like it.|
|I didn't like the ink used to print the white on red - too plastic.|

I was working merrily along on these, first the blue then the pumpkin, and I ran out of both colors of thread. I could have gone to WalMart in the middle of the night (open 24 hours!) but I decided to just finish them the next day. The pumpkin print is adorable, even though it is orange. I'm not a fan of orange...
|Blue Flowers SOLD!|
|They will be for sale on Etsy, but first I'm offering them to anyone who is a reader of this blog for a discount - $32, free shipping. Leave a comment and I will get back to you.|

I've been feeling very productive lately, and I'm making more aprons. I like these a lot, especially the one with the black trim. I changed the way I finish the neckline, and I like it much better. The one with the yellow trim and the blue/black/gold ones have the old neckline.

I've been making these tiny earrings with seed beads and other beads; they are about a half inch or slightly more. I have a huge collection of beads; I buy them because they don't take up much space, unlike most art and craft supplies. Available at my Etsy shop [tarazara].

My latest obsession, a recurring one throughout my life, is beading. Now I'm making rings and earrings with seed beads and other beads. It's exacting work, which is what I like to do. I'm constantly thinking up new styles and variations, from simple bands to miniature crowns. These and lots more available on my Etsy shop [tarazara].

These are some copper figures I made ages ago. I only have the one with the bead skirt. The others (there were a couple more) I gave to someone to photograph for an art site, and when I asked for them back, she insisted she didn't have them. The site was supposed to sell various kinds of art and crafts, but I don't think it ever got off the ground. I learned my lesson; never hand over your stuff - use your own pictures. I think I didn't have a camera at the time and just scanned these so they are not the best pix.
