    oh my gosh! Beady, she is absolutely wonderful-Im smiling, smiling and smiling some more. Each little detail is so appropriate, “When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one” The Rabbit. You have so outdone this. Those little mushrooms are adorable. great work and depiction! What a journey! I think I’ll take some tea!

    beady did you bead your necklace in separate strands? how did you do that?

  9. Beady Little Eyes
    Beady Little Eyes says:

    Thanks Stingray.
    Robin – yes – one side is 2 strands. I added the mushrooms then twisted and sewed them together. Reduced it from 6 beads to 4 and made a loop around the fob. The 8 bead strand I also reduced and looped it around the fob for drapiness.

    Beady, Every detail is perfect! Now let’s see… ‘one pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all.’ Go ask Alice… What an amusing & fun-filled piece!

    Isn’t it funny how we remember lyrics from songs that we heard when we were young–yet now, we’re always asking where we set the keys?! :)
