Embracing The Pink--October BJP
I've written before about my mixed feelings about the pink month of October. You can see my other October pieces here and here. This year I decided to embrace the pink.
The foundation is Lacy's Stiff Stuff painted a mixture of red and white Dye-na-Flow..
There is a large heart, several large round beads, bugles and sequins. There are also 6/0s, 8/0s, 11/0s and 15/0sTwo kinds of larger beads, 6/0s, 8/0s, 11/0s, and 15/0s.
The backstitch and the stop stitch were used in this piece.
The size is 2.25 inches by 3 inches.
I used size A pink Nymo thread.
What I Was Thinking:
I decided it was time to come to terms with the relentless pinkness of October. I decided to push my self through it. And I did. Pink is not my favorite color, under the best of circumstances. But I did enjoy working on this piece.
Issues That Came Up:
As I worked, I wondered if all these different shades of pink would work together. I think they did!
