Beading Project - November

Finally I am back to beading, the eye is doing fine and hopefully tomorrow is my last doctor's visit.
This picture to the left is my inspiration for the November beaded project above. In November 2008 my granddaughter, Gianni was in a parade in Benton with her ball team. It was dark and the lighting was not good where we were standing. The picture is how the camera caught whatever float went by. I liked it, I liked the colors and it gave me an inspiration for my November project. Hence a beaded, blurred parade picture for November.
My drawing talent is not good so I use these photos are my inspiration. I am now working on my January project and hope to have it done soon so I won't be so far behind.
The retina detachment has been a nightmare, but thanks to a God who heals it is so much better now. Hopefully this won't happen again. Thanks to everyone for your sincere concerns and prayers. Blogging can give you some wonderful friends.

When I saw the thumbnail pic on my blog following I thought Wow! What the heck is that. How pretty!

Then when I clicked in, I still thought What the heck is that. Man its pretty.

What a great thing to take inspiration from. Wonderfully open thinking! and also beautiful beading. I really like it, and I bet you do too. Bet Gianni thinks its cool!

Glad you are OK and your eye is healthy. My husband had a tear by a nerve a year ago and it can be very scary.

I had the wonderful blogger girls conversation earlier today, and several other times. You are so right.

Yay!!! You're back to beading and you've done such a beautiful job with this abstract piece. I immediately saw a fish flying downstream over a waterfall, but I like the fun of a parade better! Oh, also I really enjoyed reading the previous post about your get-together at Bird Nest on the Ground!!! What a glorious thing to have a group of art friends like that! Hope the eye keeps improving!

Brenda, your eyes are blessed to see inspiration for such a lovely piece in a photo that others would throw out without a second thought. I say it again, as I did some time ago: I love your proclaimed attitude that it is never too late to have fun. Right you are!

Looking forward to your next BJP page,
Sabine
