As usual, once it's beaded I'll get some much better pix of this piece. I'll probably be working on it tonight in front of the TV. That is, after I felt and full my March vessel. Nice segue, eh?
So March... I'm looking at the calendar thinking that the Bead & Button Show is going to be here in a flash, and I have almost NO bead inventory. My leaf stash is WAY down, and my friend Nanette has asked me for enough leaves to make about 35 of our jewelry kits. That's 105 leaves, just for kits! That doesn't include any beads for MY booth at the show, and I know that some folks will be looking for leaves. Suddenly I'm feeling overwhelmed again - the attack of the leaves! I was looking at some shops out on Etsy, and I found the perfect focal piece for my March BJP vessel. Kristie-Lou from sculptedwindows had this fabulous cabochon and now it is mine. It sure does reflect how I feel!
And here is the March vessel at the wet and soapy fiber stage. First picture is the top, second picture is the bottom.
Right now, I'm very happy with it. But who knows what it will look like after I full it? Since this one is completely abstract, I don't think I'll have the same issues with it as I had with my February "page". I'll have more pix and progress to report later in the week, but now it's time for a caffeine break - cappuccino is calling me! And it's time for you to go have a happy and creative day!
