When it all succeeds

I feel like I've had a number of false starts.....a project I envisioned which didn't go as planned. There are times that is fine, another direction presents itself and it all works out and there are times that the plan needs to be abandoned all together, and then.....

There are those times where you have a vision, the materials are perfect, the beading falls into place and the result is magic. Last night I created magic and it felt really good. Alas, it was book magic so I won't be showing you the entire piece.

I started with a LillyPilly Designs donut in pearl and aqua and added a compliment of beadwork.



I wanted a neutral backdrop and when Susan suggested netting I thought it might be perfect and it is!



I'm delighted with this piece and am anxious to finish it....perhaps tonight I will be beading, today is for instructions.

The day started with a soak in the hot tub and a stunning view of the sunrise,



but the forecast is for 80 percent chance of rain, so it looks like a cozy indoor day.

Beautiful beadwork, beautiful sunrise. It's raining now in central CA; it started last night.

That is a gorgeous "teaser." The colors are amazing together and I can almost imagine where you are going with it. Your book is going to be awesome. :)

Stunning, as expected. I can hardly wait for the publication of the new books. Bravo!

It's cold and snowy here so a soak in the hot tub sounds fabulous. Love the colour combination and unusual beads. Can't wait to see it (and bead it?)

It's nice to even see the little teasers of the piece. I like what I saw. Glad it all worked out for you.
