Bead Journal Project - April

Everyone knows that if daffodils had wings they'd be goldfinches... Since my bird garden is festooned with daffodils in April it's only fitting that my April BJP be a goldfinch. The color is off in this photo.... The background beads are actually an iridescent peach but try as I might I couldn't get it or adjust it.....

I know that without this project I would have NEVER gotten around to documenting the development of my garden for the birds and how it changed my life... My first plan was to use part of the story with each finished bird but now thinking I'm going to use the birds for a cover for a book about the garden... Then I will make copies for kids and grandkids...

Following post is installment 4 - Hips! Hips! Hooray for Roses!

Your beaded birds are just amazing. You couldn't do such an amazing job if you didn't love them so much, too...

Gerry I love this piece. I love the 3D you created with the thistles. I'm working on my journal for March and it has 3 cute birds that I stenciled. Cannot wait to get started but have other commitments to do first. I also love the pictures of your garden. All those roses, they're terrific. I regret they refuse to grow on my (too hot) balcony.

The plan for the book is brilliant! Beautifully beaded and the little ladybug for just the right amount of color and good luck...

Oh Gerry, your goldfinch is so lovely!!!! Yes, the color doesn't look quite right, so I'll just have to come visit you and see it AND your roses in person. I've been reading back through your older posts and enjoying everything... puppy, roses, hips, stories! I'm soooooooooo glad we connected!
