I’ve completed the trial bead embroidery piece that I posted yesterday. I was thinking of doing a border around the edge, but I sort of like that it is irregular and not perfectly round. I’m looking forward to switching gears and starting to think of how I want to approach my first Bead Journal piece for January. I’ll be sure to post pictures as I go!

Hi Carol. Great trial piece. With the few parameters we are given, it allows us to change as we go. I think the freedom here is part of the greatness of the project.
Ooooooh! I like this sooooooooo much and love that you allowed it to be irregular in shape… Perfect!!!
Thanks, Robin! I definitely took my cues from your work, which I am fascinated by! I just love the whole idea of improvisational beading, essentially 'doodling' with beads. So fun!
Very organic looking – which I absolutely love! Can't wait to see your 1st BJP page. Also want to tell you that I love your illustrations!
Very, very nice, I especially like how organic or naturalistic in form the piece is with the irregular edges.
I totally agree with previous comments about your finished piece looking organic. It reminds me, in a way, of an oyster shell. It's a beautiful piece of work.
I too love the organic look and the colors. I found a magnolia bud on the ground today that I brought home inspired to use for design and this reminds me of that. I enjoy your talent.
All – thanks very much for your feedback! How fun to read what each of you see in this piece.
carol, i love the freeform shape, the colors and how everything flows so perfectly together. Very nice work!
Hi Carol! This is my first visit to your blog, and I must say, your work is absolutely beautiful. Gram would be so proud of you! Keep up the great work!
