Because I felt like beading



November is a departure for me. I didn't fill the entire page with beads. But I did felt the three long pink/orange/red tubes and embellished them. It's also somewhat symetrical, somewhat not.

I went to this crafty fair at LACC for the Felt Club event. It was ok, click the link to read my entire review about it. I really wanted roving so I could make some beads; the Nov weather has been dreary enough that I needed the wild hot colors used in this piece.

So this month has been less about what Nov means to me and more about playing for the heck of it. So it's all about the title of this post: Because I felt like beading.

I loved those felted beads, although I don't really like that page. I need to play more.

I have thought over and over to work more on that page but decided against it. It's sort of a reminder to me that I can over think things.

Playing for the heck of it, and celebrating that notion with a BJP... ooooh, what a concept! I love it! Also I love the colors on this one... beads compliment felt so nicely, don't you think?

Yeah, felting is fab, there is an essential-ness to them that works so well with beads.

LOL, I am learning how to better play and just bead (sorta kinda).

Thanks Norazihan! Wow, you're from Malaysia? I took a look at your blogger profile and wasn't sure where I might post a thank you for leaving a comment. :-)

Do you bead? If you do, or think you might want to delve into it, you should think about joining next years Bead Journal Project. We have all levels of beaders participating.

Thanks Hélène! Those colors and texture of the felt was just what I needed in November.
