May Paths

Here's my May page! So, I'm only 2 months behind. Not too bad! Right? Working is putting such a damper on my beading, along with the carpal tunnel that is really acting up. Just had the nerve test done for it and so far no nerve damage so that makes me really happy. I have a doctor visit on Monday to see what I'm supposed to do. Wearing a brace 24/7 helps but it sure slows things down. It hasn't stopped me though so that's a good thing. Other than work and running around with my son, not much happens here. Summer school is going well, only 2 weeks left after this one! The weather here has just turned for the better! We had a very soggy spring and now the sun is shinning and my flowers are blooming and everything looks beautiful. This page turned out totally different from what I saw in my head to begin with. I started with the cab and took my colors from there. If you look closely, you'll see that it is kind of geometric itself. It's purple and sage green, have no clue what it is, next time I'm at the store I'll ask. I liked it because of the striations in it. I used size 6, 8, 15s and delicas.

Isn't it cool when the beads take over with their own idea for a design? I love what you've done with this month's piece.

Great job of picking up the colour in the cab! I think this one just might be my favourite so far.

This is so pretty! I love your choice of colors and the texture is loveley! Nicw work, I wish I could say I was only 2 behind!

These two colors together just send me right to heaven! I love these pathways...

Could they represent your busy life and the cab is the hub or the centering? Could they represent your nerve pathways in your wrist?

I love inigmas like this!!!

It's beautiful and one of my fav color combos too!
(take lots of breaks while beading if you can...I've had the carpal tunnel surgery on both hands and it's nothing you want to do for a lark!)

One phrase popped in to my head when I saw your piece...Elegant Simplicity. It is truly beautiful!

How beautiful! I absolutely love the color combination and the cab is wonderful. The whole piece is so serene and lovely.

It looks wonderful. It goes so well with the cab. That's a lot of beading while your hand is in a brace. Hope it gets better - your hand that is. Your beading is just great.
