Beading the Border Blocks, Part 3

We are marching right along here! This morning I watched one of my all time favorite movies as I worked, True Confessions, with Robert DeNiro and Robert Duvall. Made in 1981, it's a tough story about two brothers...an ambitious monsignor in the Catholic diocese of 1940's LA and his cynical police detective brother...and the hypocrisy and redemption in both their lives as a horrible crime that involves them both gets solved. The story is from a novel by John Gregory Dunne, no slouch at telling the wicked, wicked truth. It is fabulous...if you haven't seen it, do!

Some of the beads I used were really small! These are mixed sizes 20 to 24. (Sorry I wasn't able to get any other way of sizing them while at Beadcats. You can just call these "dust" and it would be pretty accurate.)

Top row, left to right....

I am going to have hell to pay, getting this all evened up properly, I know....

I had to put that airplane in for Robert, of course.

One more row of blocks to go!

Yesterday we got 1.75" of rain, while Seattle got 4". Twenty miles of Interstate 5 are closed both north and south, and several hundred people are still stranded by flooding in our region. We are sending out prayers to them!
But meanwhile, it is clearing up......

Sorry about the bad weather out your way - it's like Santa Fe here in Austin today. Stay warm and keep beading!!

It's all so wonderful! I love the extra little touches, like the airplane. Those are my kinda beads. The smaller, the better. =)

All that rain is so good for beading. Think-if it were dry, you might be outside gardening! I hope it all clears up soon and the floods go down quickly. We know all about those after last summer.

Love all the beading! You're making me look at my own quilts in a totally different way -- I think they all need extensive beading. Thanks for showing so many pictures.

The detailing you do is simply amazing. And you have that rain, we have that snow. It just makes for lots of indoor work time.

Thanks for the film tip. I'll put it in my Netflix queue.

your stitching is beautiful and the quilt for your church is a work of art!
