I find that when life gets to be incredibly busy and stressful at work, I find myself thinking more and more about the knitting and the beading, my creative outlets. In these projects, there's a start and a definitive end. In the world of software, it feels as if there's no end because there is always a bug to be fixed or a request to make a change.
I had this piece mostly finished before I moved and I was able to find some time to finish it up bit by bit and satisfy my need to make something with beads. The ball is Laura McCabe's Crown Jewel pattern and I added a little bale to hang it from a twisted ndebele robe. The toggle was also beaded.
