Bead Journal Project

JUNE is in honor of my friend, Sally, who enjoys all things "rooster". She purchased this button for a sweater. JULY is in honor of my Dad, a watercolor artist. Just couldn't resist making the color wheel as a wagon wheel - he was born and raised in the "wild" west - Montana.


AUGUST is in honor of my husband's Aunt Marion. The focal piece on this is actually a stick pin. I stitched the post to the reverse side before adding the backing fabric.
For those keeping track, May is the missing month. In a couple of weeks we will be headed to our summer home in Maine and then I will be able to work on it. The piece will honor my husband's mother and I need a snippet of her wedding gown to incorporate into it.
