Work in Progress: Belated Bugles

This week my workspace is feeling totally neglected. I caught one of those early spring colds that feels as if you’re being sucked back into the depths of winter, and it put me into a huge creative slump. Luckily, I have made a bit of progress on the new bugle cuff, but things are slow going. It has been nice to get in a lot more relaxation time than I’m used to, though. Hopefully, I’ll figure out where my motivation is hiding and get back to my normal routine soon.

Blue Bugle Cuff in Progress


I decided to swap out the beige seed beads I had originally chosen for this piece, and use cream instead. The beige looked a bit too yellow, and seemed to clash with the blue. I still haven’t decided how I’m going to work the trim. I’d like to include both black and cream, but I might just go with a single color. I won’t know for sure until I try them both.

What are you making right now?
