I'm beading slowly, as I find the time. Until just recently I'd forgotten how good it feels to be productive. I just finished two of these three pieces. By finished, I mean completely finished -- framed and able to hang on the wall. I'm quite lax at taking the final steps to finish my work. Once the fun part is done I loose interest, and move on to a new piece. Bad habit. I'm going to try to remember how good it feels to have things 100% finished.
These three pieces, all 10 x 10 inches, and are my second effort at becoming a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association. I've made changes since the last time. I've incorporated a suggestion from the prior go round, and am using uniform frames. I'm going to call my medium "assemblage" and not embroidery. Assemblage is a recognized "fine art" while embroidery has strong craft connotations.

I'm satisfied with my effort. I'll let you know what happens.
