Habitual Habitat of the Amy

I kept reading advice columns for how to bring sales to your etsy shop, and one thing they all said is to get a blog.

I can't say this blog has boosted my etsy sales, but it has given me yet another outlet for talking about myself, and that can't be bad--can it?

A New Geometry

Well. Someone looks tiny.

I mean, it is tiny, but they never really look it...until I put my hand in the picture. And boy does that throw everything into perspective.

Or I have really big hands--which I've actually been told I do have large or 'man hands' before. Yeah. I dumped him.

Okay, well, my little sister was home for Christmas, and she suggested that I make more geometric tapestries.  Of course her idea was that she would make the patterns and I would make the tapestry, but in the end she left without anything concrete, so I decided to take matters into my own hands, as it were.

This is smaller than my other beaded tapestries, but I rather like the size because it means I can finish the whole tapestry in four days (with time left over for a pin). The beads used are all Japanese cut size 11, some my poorly-cut ones, and some my better-cut ones.  I actually made the pattern in these colors with those exact beads in mind, which is strange because they seem like the six colors should be rather garish together, but instead it's a really intricate and sophisticated piece.

I changed the colors slightly and made an inverse of the pattern, but it's not as good. I'll put it up when it's completely completed (which probably won't happen until I'm done using it as a cell-phone cozy).
