Yes, I said the 'F' word
Well, we often get threads in here asking what you are working on but let's see what we have all gotten finished. Yes, I said the 'F' word, but we all know some of those 100 projects we have going at once have to get done at some time so let see them if you can post a pic. If you can't post a pic then feel free to describe your latest completed works.

My wife and I have been getting the kids dance clothes together and I will have pics of lots of the pieces (as well as the kids in thier complete outfits), but until then here are the boot I just got done for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. They are about a kids size 7-8 and made of commercail tanned hides with Czech beads and silver spots.

Here is a roach I just finished tonight for a Kiowa bud of mine. It is made of blonde porky hair with clipped striping in front and lightning bolt design base.

Very nice work PWB 49

I posted pics of my wifes belt and barrette in the gallery about a month ago. I'm working on a design now for my belt. I'll have to post some pics here once I get it finished.

powwowbum49 06-12-2003 05:15 PM

Thanks all, but I want to see your works too. I checked out the gallery last night and saw Chemists doll that I hadn't seen yet and I have too say it is just toooo keen. I also saw Blackbears latest beading that is looking top notch as always.

Maybe folks can post links to some of those newly finished items that are in the gallery, cause lord knows it took my 24k bps connection forever to go throught the gallery.

spottedeagle 06-12-2003 07:21 PM

#1 My wife's belt and barette:

We didn't get a good pic of my son but here is his Straight dance apron and trailer. I made the design and my wife and I both did the sewing on it.

Nice work folks!

PB49: What is on the base of the scissortail feathers, thread or quills? (I can't tell from the pic)

The base of those feathers are thread wrapped, though they are not actually scissortails. They were made to look like scissortails but they are Blue eared pheasant that was just creatively cut...so to speak! It was an experiment to see if I could get them to look like scissortails, but were completely legal to sell. I guess it worked...LOL!

Here is another pic of a pair of scalp feathers I made quite a while back and this pair is wrapped with quills at the base. Just to show folks what you are talking about. These feather are also another of those experiments. They are completely legal for sale also...they are peacock lifter feathers.

Aint creative clipping great!!!

Yay!! I got a shawl done!:D One down, 5 to go.

Emmy 06-20-2003 03:19 PM

i finally finished my dress and apron. will be done with the moccs & leggins tonight.

LummiGirl 06-20-2003 03:29 PM

I finished my 8th key chain last night. Whew. It may not sound like a big deal, but the beadwork alone on these little suckers takes me about 5 hours. :)
