The last of the year for http://www.beadjournalproject.com/ I can hardly believe that another one is gone. This reminds me of December with gray days and less daylight. I don't mind, as it means more studio time. The background is felted with a thick and thin yarn-it is fun what happens when you use that type yarn. It is then machine quilted with metallic thread. The donut is held down with straight stitches by hand. Then came the beading.
