I got a promotion at work so to celebrate I decided to buy myself something nice, probably a new Pendleton blanket. But instead I bought a turkey feather pow wow fan made by a very gifted Caddo artist (I fell in love with the small green feathers) and I asked her to also bead the handle to match the dress that another friend will make for me from green wool broadcloth. I still need to make the rest: medallion necklace, hair ties, and moccasins but I'll use Tracy's bead work to tie it all together somehow. Think I'll get brass conchos for the belt as they will look better with the green wool and I'll add my beloved brass sequins near the hem too (its starting to sound Northern style).
