Week 39--Jewel

It must be the craziness that is the last official "hoorah!" of North American summer, but "things" are moving slowly around here. Or just the distraction of family, barbeques and toasted marshmallows. MMM.

Freebird sent us her beading pattern for her "jewel." We're impressed with her dedication: even if she's busy with family, she still has time for her art and this challenge:

We can't wait to see the finished product; she'll post it on her blog when it's all done!

We went with drawing a ruby cabochon as a scarab beetle. The added challenge was to draw black-on-black then to try to photograph it.

On our Flickr feed, so far.

We all hope you like what you see, that you visit the artists' blogs and comment appropriately. Or perhaps? Try your hand at whatever inspires you and create your own twinchies!

Until next time....
