Project 9: Water Lily Bead Embroidery Cuff

The bead challenge is due by five o'clock tomorrow. I have a long evening ahead of me finishing this off, but I will hunker down with a needle and thread, and before you know it, I'll be winning the contest. Or at least that's how it works out in my head.

The method I used for the background is pretty hypnotic and my favorite thing about this bracelet. I'd like to do a piece that's made entirely of undulating beads. Note to self: do that.


MIA: Rosewood Buttons

I'm genuinely shocked to find that the last post was in January. It's been two months? I suppose that makes sense... One may recall that it was about this time last year that I fell off the face of the planet, leaving a void in my blogging. Winter marks my busiest time of year at work, gearing up for the traveling summer season and sending two publications off to press. I am happy to report that the winter rush is winding down, and life is about to return to normal. Sigh.

In fact, I have a slew a projects ready for posting, from a new dress finally using the white silk I got last year to the previously mentioned Beading Challenge bracelet. The competition ends in a week! Stay tuned!
