The beginnings...


of my December BJP! Finally I have taken the time to sit down and start my December page. I have a beautiful piece of Dupioni Silk picked out in a Peacock blue color. I also picked out several colors of white, silver and blue seeds in sizes 15 and 11. I need to pick out lots of accent beads too, but that will have to wait until I get a little further along. Have you seen the Swarovski Crystal Sequins?? They are gorgeous and I will be using several of them as well. I picked a 3mm Crystal AB sequin for this page. I am excited to get started on this one, because the faster I get December done, the sooner I can start February's piece. I have that one done in my head, and I am anxious to start. First things first though. On to December! I will post an update tomorrow. Tonight we are off to my daughter Jessica's house for cards and pizza. She and her hubby Mike are leaving for Mexico in 5 days (lucky girl) so this will be our last chance to spend time with the 2 of them before they leave. Jess has to work at the hospital the next few days until they leave. I just know they are going to have a great time.

PS. I dont know if I have posted about this or not, but my other Son-in-law Brandon is due to deploy to Iraq very soon. It was his birthday yesterday, so I send him warm Birthday wishes. He is away for more training right now. Happy Birthday Brando! Hurry home.

oooooo, can't wait to see what this piece will be! Your work is amazing anyway, but with these components on the silk and the color, well, its going to be stupendous. (Not to put any pressure on you or anything!)

I hope your son-in-law stays safe and returns soon. At present I guess it's safer in Iraq than Afghanistan.
