I had a lovely surprise one day last week. When I came home from a Dr. visit (what else do I do these days) there was mail for me and not just mail but a package from my friend Jo in New Zealand.
I was so excited to open it and it was one of her faces that she does the wonderful beading around. She did it on a fairly large piece of black fabric to give me room to play with it. I am thinking of how it would look on a black jacket. I thought purse but I am one of those people who really can't be bothered changing purses so end up using the same one every day and the rest of the beautiful ones gather dust or hang on the wall.

I love the colours Jo used. The larger beads surrounding the face had both turquoise and gold in them and then she used gold beads at the tips and they sure do sparkle. I had trouble getting a really good picture. I find beads very hard to photograph but at least it will give you an idea of what she has done.

Go on over to and have a look at her etsy sites. She has 2. One for her own work and another for her vintage linens. Her prices are very reasonable and her work is wonderful.

Thank you again Jo for this present.

Lucky you Freda! Such a nice present to get in the mail, especially when it's not expected. It's beautiful!

That is so unusual! I'll visit your friend's Etsy site in a minute to check out her other stuff, but I have to say I grinned at your comment "came home from a Dr. visit (what else do I do these days)" - oh boy, can I relate to that!
