October Fest

Welcome to the October Fest Blog Hop!  

Today my post will be short as the participant list is long and you need time to hop.

I made one bead embroidered piece.  My inspiration for this piece was a tornado. 

I wanted to capture pent up energy.  The whirling, swirling unpredictable motion of wild winds.  I'm not sure I managed that.  Now that I look at it I see a fire dancer instead. 

This is my first raised bead embroidered piece.  There is a piece of rope sewn down under the beads of the body of the funnel. 

A HUGE thank you to Rita at Toletc Jewels/Jewel School Friends for putting this hop together.  Here are all the other lovely participants, if you prefer they are all listed on Rita's blog as well:

    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working.

Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.
