Today it's the last day of June - time to start at least this months BJP-piece. ;-)
It has been unforeseen a very troublesome time of my life with hardly any energy to think about projects in my life.
I indugled in summer delight which gave me so much joy - and that was enough and exactly what I needed.
For s*w*i*t*z*e*r*l*a*n*d I had the beads and misc. together very early in June and they have been sitting next to me when I was beading. I planned to work into the June bracelet abstracts of my beloved mountains, maybe even kind of a climbing route. But I never found the exact picture in my mind.
This morning I took the advice I read on so many blogs: Take one bead and start - it will all come out.
And so it did, at least I hope so:
I started with the cute sun twinkling with her eyes at me and went on stitching a snowy slope as the beginning of a mountain. But it did not feel right and I felt like I can't do it.
A moment later looking into the beads all of the sudden I knew what to do: I go on with more or less stitching rows and letting the colors speak for themselves and letting them merge.
It is not important that the piece carrys mountains, skiing, climbing, beautiful tiny high altitude flowers, crisp air on it. Important are my feeling and thoughts while working on it.
Now I'm in a much more happier mood, because I know what I will be doing. Yeah, and I know that this I can do!
The weekend is young; I need to recover from an awful week and part of it will be working on s*w*i*t*z*e*r*l*a*n*d.
