Edward Scissorfish, Tail and Fin Fringes

Edward Scissorfish is ready for displaying! The tail and fin fringes weren’t too tough once I used a single, very long thread for multiple fringe lengths (6″, 5″, 4″, 3″, and 2″). That’s a lot of beads but easy enough to watch baseball and bead.

No more baseball for 2019 but basketball season is underway and it appears Philadelphia has a team in the Sixers!

It was good to go out of my comfort zone to try this beaded piece but don’t look for another. I’m not sure my fingers can take many more stabs! I feel a real sense of accomplishment. I’m sure if I did a second one, it would be easier and turn out better. But, nobody else is going to be noticing anything amiss with this guy as long as I stop pointing them out.

Thanks again to Cleo Robbins (Busy Lizzy) for all her guidance and holding a fourth class so several of us could get the lining in correctly.
