Another Beading Disaster

This my big boy so far. I am finding the belly part a bit finneky. If you get what I mean.

I have had another disaster. The Wild Child and the Princess came to see us the other day. The Princess was picking through my very small work table. Then it happened ALL the beads for Teddy Koi landed on the floor. I could have cried, so could the Princess needles to say. She was on her knees picking them all up in an instant. The Wild Child was helping her, they picked every one of them up.
I need to get stuck in and finish him before the third disaster strikes.
I am still so in love with him. My better half said he would like to hang him in the window of the car. Dont worry that will not happen ..

More of the beading of Teddy Koi

Here is more of my lovely boy.
I seem to be staggering from bead to bead.. It is so intense. I can only do a little bit at a time. However every time I finish each new part I sort of hold him up and gaze in wonder at him. I really never thought anything could give me such enjoyment. Mind you he is not even nearly finished..
I have found the most difficult part is the back scales. It is a bit fiddly and my fingers are not so agile as they used to be. Also while the children are here they just want to pick him up and wooo and ahhh at him. I dare not try to do any of Teddy when they are here.
I had a misshap the other day. I spilled the tray of beads I dont have to tell you I was on the floor in an instant groveling around picking all the little things up. I think I got most of them.. My Wild Child picked up some that I had missed. What a Boy.
