I've been spending a lot of time on facebook and not enough
time on here, but I haven't totally been doing nothing.
There have been so many beautiful embroidered pieces being
shown by various beaders. Jean Hutter can whip one out a
day I swear...I'm almost embarrassed to say this but I have
been working getting this far for two weeks. Tore it out
three times, and spent lots of time just looking at it.
I'm so anal when it comes to beading, abstract is hard for me.
But I'm on the right track now (not going abstract but...)
and this might get done by the weekend. The cabochon is from
my good friend and ceramic artist Melanie from Earthenwood Studio.
The tinier ones are also from Melanie, I've been saving them
for a while. Lots of greens and bronze beads, little bronze flowers.
I'm thinking green for spring. Of course the picture doesn't
do it justice, no sun today, but its not freezing outside either.
And the days are getting longer....
