I made a few changes, as I often do, and switched the pearls that the bracelet pattern called for with some beautiful 4mm lapis beads. Another change I made was using oval crystals in place of bicones. Just look at the amazing blue color of the lapis beads.

Lately my stitching time as been taken up with the completion of gifts, and I finished two of them in the past couple of weeks. Because they haven't been given to the recipients yet, I can't post them yet. But I will share them once they're sent and received. I have unearthed my largest WIP, LHN's Song of the Seasons. But, you're saying, didn't you start that like a year ago? Why, yes. Yes, I did. This piece will be for me, so it always went to the bottom of the WIP pile when something else came up. So now I'm making this one a priority. It will be framed, and I already have a place in mind to hang it.
Coming up later this week: Stitch Day! I can't wait to see my Sisters In Stitches. And I intend to have a lot more of Song of the Seasons to show you soon.
