I've just joined Sharon B's Take It Further Challenge and it looks like great fun. It's a bit more structured than the Bead Journal Project, but not enough to be constricting, more of a challenge, I think. I seem to work better with a bit of a deadline and this will give me another one to shoot for. Plus it starts this month and goes for a year, so when the bjp is finished in May, I'll still have something else to work on.
I've gotten a bit done on the next piece in the basho series but not enough to post yet...I think this afternoon will be spent doodling ideas for the TIF challenge.
