I've made a little more progress, though not as much as I'd hoped. Life and The Simpsons Movie sort of jumped in my way. The sequins just won't photograph properly-- they are a bright red-violet with little hologram highlights. The rest of the colors are pretty close to reality, though. I wonder where it will take me next?

Here is the beginning of my July page. By now, there is less hubbub around the house, since we're no longer the new house that everyone has to see, so I have been able to get some beading done. Of course, all this has come in between reading the Harry Potter book! :-) I'm going for a more designy feel on this one, just letting it grow as it will.

I woke up Thursday at 6am (having gone to bed at 2...), with a great idea to straighten out my diagonal lines. It worked, though took quite a bit of trial and error. Then a cat came along and wanted to be included... Anyway, this is the final version of my June page. It explains why I was having such a hard time starting July.

Here's the bead and sequin jewelry piece I was working on, finally finished up. I decided to turn it into a pendant and added a peyote stitch bale big enough to accommodate chains and necklaces of various sizes and widths. The backing is black ultra leather, which sews pretty well and is easy to keep clean. I had a lot of fun making this, and it went quickly, so I'll probably make some more of this kind of thing in the near future.
In my immediate future -- start the July page!
