Goddess's in the house!

Hi Everyone!
Here are some more Goddess's for you to enjoy.
I'm back in the beading mode and I'm happy to say that the beads didn't fail, only my creativity stalled for a bit!
It does feel good to bead again, after a long pause.
cheers, Denise

May 09

Hey, I just posted my May BJP, take a look. Julie

Happy Solstice!

I finally finished my May BJP page and hopefully June will move a bit faster. It is just a wonderful accomplishment though to open the drawer and see all of the pages looking back at me. We're on the home stretch now! My page is here if you'd like to see it.


Happy Solstice everyone

I just uploaded my pieces for November, December, January, February and June on my blog here.

The past few months have been challenging, thus my efforts are very simple :o)

My May Triangle

May is, quite simply, cherry blossom time. I'm not really a pink person, but I confess to waiting anxiously for those very first blossoms. This piece is about the simple joy of nature and creation. Isn't it all amazing? No, the world is not full of light, but somehow this time of year reinforces my belief in the possibility of change. The background of the tree is a scrap of monoprinted satin that I made with transfer paints. I have a postcard from this material currently hanging in the Grand National Postcard Show at Joseph Schneider Haus in Kitchner, ON. (the show opened in May). The tree is free motion embroidered by machine and the central motif is 1 1/2" X 2". The piece contains silk flowers, pearls, accent beads, 8, 11 & 15 seeds & #2 bugles. Stitches used are peyote, for the bezel, backstitch, stack stitch and free form edging.

I'd like to dedicate the pink light in this piece (okay it has some blue, red and orange as well) to Pam T. You are one courageous lady, and I'm honoured to be in the same BJP group.

Little Mouse

This is my granddaughter whom I am making the book for. I did finish this book and will show you more of it later. Her graduation was this last weekend and she soooooo loved this book. She could not remember giving me this little story but when she saw the original story she said. Oh grandma thats my handwriting and had a little cry. This was a lot of work but worth every minute!!!

Spring has come by the water fall

This is my May BJ piece. I took a woven piece of cloth, felted it and added felted wool on each side. The flowers are crocheted and beaded. Added a bit of embroidery and beaded some ferns. Lise Pederson
