I've always wanted to try beading and have admired beautiful crazy quilt creations with beading and ornaments created with beading for a long time.
I've also admired goddess dolls and have wanted to try my hand at creating some of the beautiful beaded goddess dolls that I've seen. Back in 2009 when I wrote about the goddess dolls in a Linda's Blog post entitled "Why Not Be Adventuresome?" and "My Goddess Doll Adventure So Far!" I was hoping to have some time to create some of them. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do so as of yet. I'm still hoping that maybe this year I will find just a smidgen of time.
I was first introduced into beaded ornaments many, many years ago when a colleague at work brought in some of the beaded tree ornaments she had made and was selling. She had some large blue beaded ornaments like those shown in the picture below and some smaller white beaded ornaments like those shown in the 2nd picture below. So, I bought three of the large blue ones and 3 of the smaller white ones. They quickly became some of my favorite Christmas tree ornaments.
