I was nose-to-the-grindstone this week, working at my tech job. And when I spend an entire week without creating something new, I get really antsy. Well, I took care of THAT today! After spending last Sunday at the knitting show immersed in all that fiber, I had to work on my latest vessel. It was like therapy - and I got my February Bead Journal Project "page" all laid out and pre-felted. Tonight I will felt and full it, and hopefully tomorrow it will be dry so I can start beading it. I don't know what it will look like when it has shrunken down, but here's what it looks like all wet and soapy on my work table. I decorated both sides, so I'll have lots of beading to do.
My head was in a rather different place last month than it was in January. I was very much influenced by all the blossoming pink trees around me, so I just knew that my February vessel would represent the pink month. It was great - while I was laying out the fibers for this vessel today, my guy was in the yard mowing the lawn. Ah yes, working on a nature-inspired vessel with the smell of sweet freshly cut grass wafting through the wet lab... life is good!
I'm going back out there now to do a bit more work on this piece before I head out for supper. I hope that you are having a happy and creative day!
