I have returned to beading, I believe it has something to do with the attractive vibrant colors of the beads. I am currently working with seed beads. I believe it connects with my the rest of my work. I have several 8.5 x 11 canvases and will be posting them soon. My pathetic attempt to bead my initials and the year is at the bottom right. I am starting on a red and possibly pink piece next (Will post when I finish). I am estimating maybe two-three weeks.
