Bits and piece's

First is the SOLAK square I'm working on when I need a break from the model.

Next we have the Santa and here's my progress so far on the front of him, his legs are done but I'm not entirely happy with the way the boots turned out so I might re-do them.
In case your sat there thinking that the red is higher than the white your quite right it is, the red was done first and then I've gone back and started the white because the thread makes a difference with white beads. It's not something you have to do but it looks better in the end if you take the trouble to do it.

A few weeks ago I was browsing round a few blogs and the same design kept jumping out at me and was struck with the mad idea of doing said design entirely in beads!
I knew straight away I wanted to use black and gold so I've diverted the black delica's I bought a few days before and spent age trying to decide exactly which shade of gold to use.
Then I thought it would be a good idea to pick out part of the design in red so more time was spent deciding which shade to use
The red and gold delica's arrived this morning and I'm really pleased with the way they look together.
Now all I have to do is finish the model and Santa then I can start it and no I'm not going to tell you what design it is just yet as I'm toying with the idea of having a little guess comp when I've made a start.

And lastly have you seen the new TW freebie

Wow talk about gross typos in that last comment!

Santa looks great! It's fun watching the beading designs. *looks smugly at her crowns*

Now I'm really curious about the new project.

Thanks for the heads up re the new TW.
