So, while I'm merrily making my fish beadwork, I've  been putting off an order that I need to get done.  I don't like doing fur, (you might remember my struggle with the last howling wolf) you have to  lay the beads in so many different directions, and noses are tricky, yada,  yada, yada, so the white wolf was not getting done. Once I get started, I'm okay. At least 11 whites, lots of grays and the all important carefully placed black. All the while keeping the gallery open and dealing with customers. Had the anti customer today, this guy from Fairbanks selling beads and Alaskana in the driveway.  Anything can happen on these long summer days, bought some great old trade beads...

Working on the water behind the fish now. The blue colors are beautiful, not realistic to the murky waters of the Kasilof River. Took the day off and went dip netting. Eating fish tonite!
