I've just committed to a year-long bead journal project, which will be embroidered, with Robin Atkins and 240 other people. Usually when I commit to a bead project, it's a one time effort, like making a bead square for a quilt, or making an item for a charity auction. This project, though, feels like it will be more personal and probably focus on issues in my life, although I can also see using it as an outlet for things going on in the world. So we'll see. For now, I'm thinking what kind of fabric I'm going to use, gathering beads, and how quickly June will be here. Please join me in my exploration of a beaded journal.
