Pink Artist offering... part 2


Click on the photo if you want a really enlarged view

I completed a second square today for the Pink Artist project. I've had this wonderful rose quartz flower that I have been itching to put to use in something. I had pink beads out already after working on the first square, it all just seemed right.

I really like these pink beads (did I really just say that?), don't they look good enough to eat?

Tomorrow I might be feeling red, or possibly yellow. I'll know when I get there... such fun!

Thanks for the encouragement ladies, I appreciate it and I'm glad you like them.

I started on another one, red and blue this time. I wish I could just sit and bead... but work calls for now.

Thanks again.

Thanks Noel!
Tina - I agree, it's amazing to watch it all unfold.
Gerry - I feel the same way when I look at something that has been created by sewing such as your amazing creations!
