To Dream - Perchance to Bead

Took me longer to get back to this than I expected - I've been making Moravian gingerbread cookies. Which also took longer than I expected.


Got them all iced and sugared this afternoon, and instead of finishing the vacuuming, I decided to photograph my latest treasure box. I think this one makes ten.

I'm very glad to be working on freeform bead embroidery again. It feels like a homecoming, like walking to the heart of the labyrinth, like finding my center again.

More later, as always.

  2. I know just what you mean about freeform embroidery. I can't seem to stay away from it. It's addictive. I love your boxes and the cookies look delicious.

  4. Welcome Home Morwyn! I know just how you feel. After doing some patterns from Marcia Decoster's Beaded Opulence book, I took a break and made an art doll. Ahh, it felt so good to just bead how I wanted and not have to follow directions.
