My bead journal for March is finished

And it has been attached to the crazy quilt project for March.  I included an old rose earring on this piece.  It was my Mom's.  I remember lovingly sorting through her pretty earrings as a child.  It feels good to include it in my art.  I am excited to start on the next bead journal.  The stitching process is very soothing to my soul.

Work in Progress Wednesday

This is the third block in a series of four.  This one is depicting the season of summer.  The bead journal in the center is truly a labor of love.  I spend many hours doing the beading.  I honestly didn't know that I had it in me.  Once I thought it was way too tedious but now I find it rather meditative to stitch on the beads.  I will post a close up of the beading tomorrow.

I heart Macro

I am longing for the warmth of spring.  I saw my first robin today and the calendar says it is spring but where is the warmth?  Poor little robin must be longing for some warmth too.  This daffodil warms my heart though.  So cheerful!

I am very pleased to say my piece was accepted into this show.  If you are in the area I would love to see you at the opening reception this Sunday.   So weird I can't get the whole flier to post.

A million French Knots

This is a monoprint on watercolor paper.  I am adding French knots to it.  Wow it is going to take a while to fill in the snowflake.  It is a good thing that sometimes I like to do repetitive work that doesn't take a lot of brain power!
