Finding time to DO bead embroidery when it's TIME to do bead embroidery is quite the feat. Now that I have everything gathered for my spring rain fairy - I just don't seem to have the time to get her started. I did find a surprise in one of my UFO boxes today, though - a partially finished set of fairy wings, beaded in the EXACT same colors that I plan to use for her. Thank you, Spirit! Now I'm at least a little bit ahead of the game.
This project has also got me thinking about the other pieces that I've embroidered - and where they ended up. Unfortunately in some ways - I still have most of them. Fortunately in some ways - I still have some of them. They are beautiful works of art that are worn, and admired. I still show and try to sell a few of them on occasion - this one will have it's second round at The Lansing Art Gallery http://www.lansingartgallery.org/ when I take the other vineyard pieces to them in April...
And as far as those dreams - never did get the nap, and now I think I'm going to go try to dream again - FOR REAL.
