2009 BFAC (Beading For A Cure) a teaser...
I have been working away on my entry for the 2009 BFAC (Beading for A Cure) auctions. She is turning into quite the beauty. I posted about her beginnings here. And a progress post can be found here.
I thoroughly enjoy the color combination and the bead sizes - seems they have worked out perfectly for my doll. I have had a pretty hectic work schedule which makes beading time all the more important to me. I try to bead at least a little bit every evening. I try to get through 2 yards of thread each evening - if I can do that, I feel like I'm making good progress, not to mention it helps alleviate any stress from the work day.
Once she is done - all 10 1/2 inches (front and back) will be beaded. I am a good way from finishing, but that's okay - I'm having a lot of fun on the journey!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
