of my new bead embroidery piece. You won't be seeing much more until it's done as I like to keep these things under wraps until they're done.
Isn't that face cabochon wonderful?! I wish I had a lot more but when I bought it there were only two and I grabbed them both. I have one more to play with. Beading was what I was into before spinning and knitting. I did it pretty much exclusively for 2 or 3 years before I got burned out. It took me quite a while to actually sit down and start this new piece but now that I have, I'm really enjoying myself. I will say this will be a necklace when it's completed and that I'll be selling it on my Etsy store. I haven't given up the dream of working, at least part-time, for myself, creating and selling my own artwork. I've gotten quite a few compliments on my other bead embroidery pieces so I have hopes my current and future pieces will sell.
Just in case you were worried I'd given up spinning, here's predrafted roving from this weekend's dyeing. Bead embroidery I find stimulating - spinning calms and relaxes me. I like to spin before I go to bed.
