The BJP 2010 has begun and so have I - although not quite as quickly as I had hoped but at least its still January so I'm not behind (yet)!
As I mentioned in my October 1, 2009 blog posting my 'theme' for 2010 will be 'bookmarks'. I have a jar on my work table with bunches of words inside. Each month I'll pull out a word and translate it into a bookmark form. I made one sample bookmark and realized that you could never actually use it for a bookmark because the beading makes it too thick. BUT - I love the idea of using words and using the bookmark form so I have decided to go ahead and make the bookmarks - however I won't back them with ultrasuede (as I had originally planned to do) but eventually will mount them in frames.
My word for January is 'interlude'. I love that word - it just seems to work with the time of the year (these quiet winter days spent inside due to really cold weather). Here is the tray set up with the eyelet placed and the 'cab' placed. Now on to the beading...
Interlude, n. An intervening episode, period, space, etc.
