This year I’m once again participating in Robin Atkin’s Bead Journal Project. The hardest decision for 2014 was choosing my theme or shape. Initially, I thought I’d work with abstract squares, then it was butterflies, then I decided upon a series of shapes that would create a coiled snake, then retro inspired owls and finally I’ve turned to birds. Each month, I’ll bead embroider a bird shape to represent what’s going on in my life or what I’m thinking about or inspired by at that point in time.
JANUARY: long hot summer days, endless sunshine, sandy beaches, blue skies, ocean waves and inviting swimming pools.
