March 2016 Bead Journal Project

I've been very busy recently with various projects. I've just bought a new sewing machine and have been trying to do free motion embroidery without much success so beading has taken a back seat for a few weeks. Still, I managed to finish my little March piece in one evening. It was my daughter's birthday and the first day of spring so this piece is very cheerful and full of spring colours.I wanted to cram the beads on to create a feeling of abundance so I piled them up and sewed quickly without too much planning - so different from my other projects. The fabric is a piece from my experiments in confetti dying. It's the drippy one. I also used some of my favourite buttons and I really like the result. Here it is.
