I’m happy with how it turned out.
Beads on PaperAlicia, Mikwako and I are working on some ornaments done with beads on perforated paper.
Alicia is doing a little bear holding some greenery. Miwako is doing a partridge and a pear. She asked me what that meant. The 12 Days of Christmas isn’t well known in Japan, like it is in the US. She changed the brown of the partridge to shades of blue to make the blue bird of happiness. I completed a snowman head and a cardinal at home and started working on another ornament that says JOY. The patterns for these pieces came from a booklet of ornaments designed by Sam Hawkins and another design by Mill Hill beads.
