Who would have thought that I would spend days working on this little beaded flower! Not me, that's for sure. I decided to overcome my fear of following written instructions and attempt this beaded pattern. I am so visual and learn quickly if I can see the object first. So this was a real challenge to follow a numbered sequence and finish this piece. It only took four times! I love to bead. It is intimate and portable. The textures and colors of beads intrigue me and distract me. Now I can move on with a bit more confidence and make some more pieces and expand on this idea.
