Bead Journal Project: February

I'm making a series of covered buttons with watch faces for the Bead Journal Project this year.  I still haven't decided whether they are going to be kept as buttons, used as individual cabochons in a larger piece, or stitched together in some way.  No matter for now...I'm having fun. 

We've had a lot of crazy weather in New England this winter.  A little over a week ago, the temperature went up to 60-some degrees and I sat out on our porch, surrounding by shrinking snowdrifts and melting icicles.  A day later, it snowed again.  I know the grass is under there somewhere, so I stitched it, topped by fluffy snow!

I love this!!! You captured the hidden grass so well...reminding me so of the long Michigan winters where it lay hidden for months.
I love these's on my list of things I want to learn to do!

Thank you, Trish! I hope you'll try them...they work up so fast it's like almost instant gratification :-)

Just got to your bead soup so I thought I would look at some of your other posts. You have done some beautiful work. I am just getting started with bead embroidery... you have my heart fluttering to get busy!

Very cool - I love the technique you used to get the snow covered grass.

Thank you both! Marian, so many projects, so little time, right? ;-)
Gorgeous and I love the story of what inspired you. It reminds me of sea foam.
