Getting back to bead embroidery definitely makes me happy, although this piece really isn’t about being happy. It’s my Bead Journal Project for April, a month that was all about separation and change, about moving, about finding a new way of being, living alone and being single rather than married. Both the beading and the process of changing my life are still on-going. I don’t know what the future will bring with either.
How lucky we are to have our art to explore and express the changes in our lives. Go to Robin’s blog post for an image you can click to enlarge.
