April BJP in the making

The word that came out of my word jar for this month is: 'converge'.  Please don't ask me where this word came from way back last summer when I first prepared the word strips, because I have no idea.  When I pulled 'converge' out of the jar my first thought was 'uh-oh' because I had no idea how to come up with beading to illustrate this word.

Into the 'stash of good stuff' my fingers went and out came this metal ring that had wire woven across the circle, all coming together in the center.  Hmmm, wherever did I find this and did the 'god of found objects' have any inkling that one day - a long time in the future I would need just this oddity? 

So I have begun to ponder the word 'converge' and to bead my way through April...

  1. I really like the way you are doing your bjp, by using words pulled from a jar. I also like your use of colors, they seem very soothing to me.

    I've enjoyed reading your blog and the way you write about your excursions and love of art!

  2. what a perfect little doodad! i don't think it could get any more perfect to illustrate your word this month. and i'm loving the color palette. can't wait to see more progress!

  3. I, too, like the way you are doing your BJP. Being nudged to think about something is good for all of us. And you did find "a perfect little doodad."

  4. Oooooh, aren't oddities just the perfect things?!!!! "Coverage" would be quite a challenge for me too, as I'm not even sure what it means... but your start with the ribbons and the covered circle are a fabulous start. I'm excited to see where this goes next!
