In an attempt to slightly challenge myself during this year's BJP, I decided to play around with embroidery. I say slightly, because (honestly) I've got so many stupid personal challenges pressing me down these days, I'm looking for the BJP to once again transport me to my happy place while I stitch away the hours and escape the turmoil in my heart.
Since January's birthstone is Garnet, I choose a color story of the same (thanks for that stellar idea Tracey!)
And then placed my 'character of the month' in the center of the flower and surrounded it with peyote.
And my first BJP 2012 was born:
The flower looks so cute on my vintage sled outside my door.
