I promised myself not to do any craftwork this fall since I have academic work demanding my attention (high enrollments mean lots of papers to grade and I seriously need to work on my manuscript and some articles) but I am so hungry for craft time! I don't even spend time with bead catalogs or my new quill books...but I did briefly look thru the new Dover edition of Kiowa 5 paintings that arrived in the mail a few days ago, lovely. I thought I might do some work over Thanksgiving or perhaps make a Christmas gift or 2, but no. The semester ends soon and while I plan to work on my articles I will find some time to get back to Beckie's doll...I picked up some new beads ( a lovely shade of blue and some pearl whites in 13/0) for it at Lyon's Indian Store in Tulsa when I went home for the Plains Anthropology conference in October. Hard to believe that this time last year I was busy working on my first cradleboard and I had hoped to start another one this winter but that will have to wait. But the holiday break is nearly here.....
