April is finished!

I'm so excited. I have been struggling with my work & I just wasn't happy with it. I'm still struggling with my February piece but I have decided, it has to be started over! I have been trying to stick to Robin's suggestion of always keep moving & you will grow to love it but it was not working. Being bogged down, I was having trouble moving onto March & April. Once I decided to just start over on February, March & April came flowing out! Here is the picture of my April piece. (March will be coming soon).
Everyone should have one special day of the year when it is all about them. My day of the year is in April so this piece is in celebration of me :) I had an absolutely wonderful birthday this year & a week later, my kitchen still smells beautiful from the wonderful flowers. Note to everyone - when sending flowers to someone who has cats in the house - don't include Baby's Breath! Receiving flowers had been banned from my house for a long time because I hated cleaning up the mess. Everyone ignored me this year but no one sent flowers with Baby's Breath! What a difference! I can enjoy my flowers & not have to worry about the mess!

Your designwork with color and your beading are always a feast for the eyes!


Kathy V in NM (and my bug-a-boo page had been October -- was I glad to finally make a decision and get it done, too!)

I know I'm writing again - I read further down and saw that your kids are graduating - all three of them? Many congratulations and I wish them all the dreams that come with transition and new beginnings. Susan

I love how you've made the center star radiate out with the other color beads. Reminds me of the posters I used to make in the late 60's and early 70's.

Great Work
Beadily yours
