New Trails


Well, I stitched nine of these little squares into 3 sets of 3 and am wondering where I'll go next with them....this is all so new to me that I feel blocked, but I know it's exactly the feeling my new beading students have....there are so many directions to go that it seems overwhelming to choose just one. So I'm telling myself just what I tell them...just choose one and if you don't like it, rip it out and choose another one....tiny, baby steps.

I love the moon face one.
You gave yourself a challenge -- it will be interesting to see where you go with it. Have fun with it.

thats good advice you gave to yourself! i started a beaded thing in Jan and it is languishing for lack of direction

Following the advice, no matter how good it is, is the hard part for me. Great advice though. Go for it.

Your bead work is exquisite. Its so intricate, should take mammoth time and effort. But they are beautiful pieces of art.

And congratulations on your OWOH drawing post, it seems to have become an instant success.

These are wonderful! Absolutely adore the animals and moon strip. Good advice to yourself and students too. Honor those baby steps...it is part of any journey. "New" students?!? We have much to catch up on my friend. Love the pirate shot below...with their friends...it is such a great picture!

Sending you my love, Bobbi!!! ~me
