A new obsession with bead embroidery ...

It began with buying a cabochon that I thought was really pretty, thinking I'd decide later how to place it in an appropriate setting.  Then I bought a book about bead embroidery, fell madly in love, and now I'm working on my first piece ... which is going to be way more complicated that anyone's first try at anything ought to be.

But ... now I can't resist planning ahead.  So here are some of the wonderful little cabochon treasures ... everything from Bird's Eye Rhyolite to Ocean Jasper to Morgan Poppy Jasper to Sonora Sunrise Cuprite ... that I've lined up for projects number two through 90, give or take ... it's going to be a wonderful, relaxing summer on Cape Cod, inventing complicated projects to embroider with beads. 

A little diversification never hurt anyone ... did it?
