I'd like to start this off by thanking everyone who left such wonderful comments on the Sequintastic September reveal posts. And, once again, everyone who participated. You made this such a fun event!
(One of my Sequintastic projects, in case you missed it.)
I'm in the process of writing a special highlights post about the hop and updating the participants' links so they go to the actual Sequintastic posts. I'll even have a link to an honorary member, who didn't technically sign up, but who ended up creating a beautiful sequiny project for a contest!
I should have everything ready by next week, and until then, here are some of the other bead and sequin-embroidered cabochons I'm working on.
(Note: all cabs have been backed with Nicole's BeadBacking, which I love, and which I reviewed here.)
At this point, I'm close to exhausting my supply of cabs, so I'm on the hunt for new ones. We'll see how that goes. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!
Does this mean I'm done playing with bright colors? No way! In fact, I have two other works in progress that are very wild, and I can't wait to share them when they're finished. But the neutral colors and subtle variations have become interesting to me, and I can see myself exploring them some more. It's kind of like I'm honoring two parts of my personality; the loud, boingy, bouncy side that loves to entertain and the reserved, pensive side that's happy sitting in silence with some deep thoughts and a good book.
(Both sides love pie. I'm just sayin'.)
And that's all I have to say for now, but stay tuned for the highlights post, as well as a very special post in which I discuss something awesome the Sequintastic hop has taught me. And in the meantime, thanks for reading, thanks so much for commenting, and have a sequintastic day!
