Here's the next instalment in my BJP 2013. I was a bit worried about how the puzzle pieces would come together since it's tricky to bead a perfectly straight edge when using little round beads, but as you can see in the second photo, showing the first two months together, the joint is not too bad. Working on the little interlocking 'tabs' of the puzzle pieces is a bit tricky, and of course I have to be careful to make sure I'm using the right colours so that the little buildings match correctly from one piece to the next. The bright sky is a nice juxtaposition to the gloomy February we've been having...I can't wait for Spring to get here!
Okay, it might not be a herring but it's a little red fish! On Sunday evening, while watching the Academy Awards, I added the beads to this fish that I had sewn up earlier in the day. He's about 3 1/2" long and he's going to be used as an embellishment on a piece I'm planning to enter into a juried show.
