Happy Friday!

As you may know if you read my blog, some of the projects I take on are for event planning/management and marketing.  Tomorrow I have a new event, the first day of another farmer's market...so I am a wee bit stressed out! First contract with the city (Washington, DC), so that is adding to the pressure.  And also - not so thrilled that there is a high of 40 degrees tomorrow and I'll be outside from 7:30-3:00!!!!

However, in spite of the big event happening tomorrow, I've shockingly been able to squeeze in a little beading!

Somewhat inspired by so many who picked gray in Erin's Paint the World with Your Palette: 2nd Annual Challenge of Color Blog Hop, and the fact that I had a meeting on Wednesday and needed something to wear with an outfit with a lot of gray....I made this piece:
I mostly am happy with how it came out, however I feel like the medallion is too much dark gray.   But as it stood, I was out of the lighter gray delicas!  So c'est la vie! I could only work with what I had!!

I've also been working on this embroidered piece....I'm enjoying the colors, but I think I may have crowded the focal stone with the first round... hmmm...any ideas on how to remedy that?

Wish me luck tomorrow!  Have a great weekend!

  1. Love your gray necklace, Amy! From what I can see in the picture, the focal on your embroidered piece doesn't look crowded. Love the colors.
