appaloosa & paint bead work
I had a great day riding yesterday , there was Salmon spawning in the stream this time and Annie stuck her whole face in the water, I thought she was trying to catch a fish! After my ride, my daughter Esther and I went to visit me friend Virginia. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing her amazing bead work she does. I need to have her teach ne how to to this. Although I don't know if I can draw free hand as well as she does. She actually draws the picture and then she does the bead with a super thin needle. here is one she hasn't finished yet IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/008-7-1.jpg) Here is a finished patch, this one is a Arabian pinto IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/021-5-1.jpg) Paint horse head IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/020-2-1.jpg) appaloosa IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/019-1-1.jpg) pony with war paint IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/017-5-1.jpg) blk/white paint horse IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/018-1-1.jpg) Then she takes the patches and sews them on a medicine bag like this one IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/003-8.jpg) and this one IMAGE(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy134/rodeoratdogs/004-7.jpg)

I do to, the pastel colored beads she used in that one are really nice I think.

That's neat, I'll have to ask Virginia, she may already know Penny. She knows alot of horse people and has lived and shown horses here since way back, like the 50's. She owned Appy's, Paints and QH's.

......I love the beaded halters and headstalls too.
