Beads and Animal Skin

and more playing with beads!! I finished the little starfish - a "jeweled" mini-ornament I made for my friend Vikki last year but never finished. She wants to do a nautical tree with it. Cute!! Also started on a piece she wants to use for the crown of a hat she will show with her finishing at the Dallas needlepoint market in April. Beading those leopard spots is blinding, but so showy/gaudy/flashy - I think the term used to be "pizazz." It will make a striking hat when she finishes, complete, probably with a net veil.

The starfish looks very rich with the different "surfaces" combined in the stitching.
And that hat!!! You have got to show it to us when Vicki has completed it.
