nearing the finish line


The April BJP heart still isn't done. I'd forgotten how much work all the little details of putting together a wedding are and how time consuming it all is. I wouldn't trade it for anything though - it's been such fun spending so much time with the kids. The wedding is next weekend and then my time once again will be my own. I've signed up for 3 classes on joggles.com as compensation to myself for deciding my health just wasn't good enough to attend artfiberfest this coming fall and I'm really looking forward to them. Projects on the horizon include finishing the April BJP page, making the May page and then binding the hearts into a book. I'm also in the process of making a 3-D fiber/beaded gypsy wagon and possibly a project for the beaded book exhibition hosted by Beadwork Magazine. In the meantime, it was great fun to take advantage of a rare sunny day to take the hearts outside and take a picture of the 12 that are done all together.

I've just a bit more to finish on the April page - I've never had something go so slowly before - I just don't seem to have the interest in finishing it though I'm eager to start May.

I've followed Beadbabe's award link. And I think I could look at April for a lot of hours. How utterly lovely!

It's looking really nice even if you don't want to work on it. You have a lot going on right now and it's sometimes hard to settle down to something past the excitement stage when you are already too busy. It looks pretty done to me and just pretty too.

It is so much fun to see all your hearts together! Having made one daughter's wedding gown myself, I don't know how you found time to do that April heart at all -- it is beautiful.

They are just gorgeous! What a feeling of accomplishment to see them all laying out like that, eh?!
Congratulations!
