Evolution Triggered by New Stash

Hi all. Did ya miss me?

I am bound to disappear on occasion for days at a time (from the Web I mean) and it's usually due to "blinders on" focus on what I'm creating.

This past week I pieced and embellished # 27 & 28 of my Portholes project, and during this started going through bead withdrawal. It was short-lived .... fortunately for me ... & thanks to my dear friend Mary Anne (who has graciously agreed to be my personal shopper) as she dropped a whole new bag of inspiration off to me yesterday!

Seems that was just what I needed to start the vision thing happening again...as I completed #20 in the 2008 series of ornament covers.....but as I was working on it....something way cool happened. I was thinking about a comment I had made to someone about the covers....that smaller versions would make fabulous CQ embellishments. My subconcious must have picked up on the thought, & the new stash triggered some ideas that have evolved from them....and more!

Needless to say....I ended up with 6 new creations between last night and this afternoon! Some are based on the circular concept (medallions) but...freeform beading that does not have to go on a ball...well that's a whole new tangent and world of possibilites! I made a fan and a couple of straight edgings that can be couched onto a CQ project....as is or have stitching added to further embellish!

Now....I know what you're all hoping...."Oh...Let's see...let's see!"

Well kids....I think for the moment I shall reserve the visuals....as I have some plans cooked up for them already....which I will share with everyone when the time is right.

Suffice it to say.....that I myself am totally impressed with these, and I know you will be too....but "good things are worth waiting for"....right? I promise to make it a "not too long" wait!

So...stay tuned...you won't be disappointed!
