Problems getting started?

Hello everyone! I am really, REALLY excited to be part of this Project! I think I have my "shape" picked out, but I haven't started beading yet, so it's likely to change.

Here's a thought for those who have not settled on a shape or theme - just start beading! Let the beadwork tell you what it wants to be! If it's keeping you from getting started, just don't think about the shape of the outer edges... start somewhere in the center. Use a piece of your backing large enough that you can work in any direction and make it any size.

Here's to a GREAT year of beautiful beading and personal discovery!

Your comment is so right on, Susie! Each month has it's own approach and it's own conclusion but all of it is fun!

I don't know Susie - you may not know what you are talking about.....after all, you know my opium, er, opinion of bead embroidery!

Welcome to Sue - one of my friends from the metro Detroit area - and fellow Loomatic beader. She, of course, does know what she is talking about. Sue is a very accomplished beader!
