I have been up to a fair bit recently so this post that I was going to write up on Sunday night is happening now instead. If you are in the Seed Beads and more group than you might have seen my request for pattern testers. Well I got some great feed back and worked on the pattern so am just have a final check to go before I send it off. I am also editing a video tutorial for the 2d pentagons I am using for my pattern and 3d polyhedrons.
On the right, you can see my mini frosted glass vase design, with a flower in the vase. the testers made their own in different colour ways and they look great.
Taking the videos and photos for the patterns and tutorials took up heaps of time but I really need to build up my skills in making them so I can start selling patterns for money to put towards my beading projects.
I found out my mum won’t be in town for my exhibition as she has planned a holiday having forgotten when my exhibition was on. I am kind of annoyed with her about it, especially given its on my birthday.
Anyway for the videos and some of the photos I used my big size 8 beads, I don’t have many left so I will have to get more for video and photo tutorials as they are much easer to see for the camera. You can see my usual size 11’s in the yellow next to the size 8’s in the grey, and the difference in size.
I’m getting there with the video editing though it really isn’t my thing.
Still, it is coming along ok and will do the job, once I have finished editing it and re-adding in the sound, to make it more streamlined. There is a nice fresh pink scare on my right hand just out of shot in this picture from 13. She was contentedly purring away as I petted her and next second she had had enough and clawed me, the little fury demon.
Speaking of cats, Andy has decided we are ok enough to now walk past at a normal pace so while he is almost always moving when I seem him he actually looks like a cat instead of the cat version of the flash. Here is my best photo of him yet. He ran off just after I took it.
Ok well I had better get back to it, but I will be posing again this week as I have Thursday off, being a public holiday, and I don’t have quite as much to cram in.
