17:365 updated - Cat-Toes and Egg
Philippe: No matter where we are, the cat comes over for cuddles.. Of course, in this particular case, she looks more interested in the toes than in the scritches. :P (I really, really need to get out of the house for pictures.. )
Anna: I just finished making this and taking pictures for a craft group I'm on, and the family voted this picture for my picture-a-day submission. Who am I to argue?
For the crafty types out there, this was done using No. 10 seed beads, netted from a ring of 30 alternating colour beads, and finishing with peyote stitch at the base after the egg was tucked into place. The egg itself is the same wrapped foam core I use in temari. The instructions I was following suggested wrapping the egg in coloured foil (and No. 11 size beads, which I didn't have), but the beads I used were shiny enough on their own.
