12 By 12 Progress

I'm pleased with how far I was able to get yesterday on my art group project. As a reminder, the theme is "door" and the technique is "beading."

First I made the base with the door way.


Spooky helped by keeping my sewing chair warm while I took a short lunch break.



Then it was time to add the beads.


The beads are also going to be the door. It is only partially done, but I think it is done enough that you can get the idea.


The idea for this came from one of my other art group members. She mentioned the idea for a beaded door but had already started on a different idea she had. I asked if I could use her idea. For some reason this reminded me of The B-52's song "Love Shack." I don't know if the shack in their song had a beaded door or if it even had a door.

I received the hunk fabric as a door prize at guild one month. I had no idea what I would do with it, but thought it was pretty funny fabric so I kept it. I'm not sure if my husband approves or not of this little project. When he saw it yesterday afternoon he didn't say anything.

Ha! I love it. This is prefect. The beads make me think of the Hippy Time. Great block!

I'd say Yes! I do believe the Love Shack in the song had a beaded door! LOL

Oh, God. That's great. Not quite Jim Morrison! But what a great use of that fabric. You are awesome!
