First Post, First Project

I'm a first-time BJP participant, and am looking forward to a new challenge each month. I have done the beading on my January project, but the way I plan to finish the project will require a little more bead embroidery. As is so often the case in my designs, my final result looks nothing like my original concept!

Isn't that the way it should be? I find if i force myself to make something look the way i think it should, it never turns out. I too am done and would never have imagined making the piece i did! There are no rules - just follow your muse!

BTW: My kiddo's are 8 and 9 and when they were younger i would 'help' them with crafts, but you know what? The one's i've kept and framed and really appreciate are the ones made from their hands alone. Bet this it true for many of us...

I have found the same thing also, mine don't match what I thought I was going for when I started. Just like Double Infinity said, when I try to force what I think should be it turns in to a struggle. Much easier to let it just flow and turn in to what it wants to be instead.
Can't wait to see your pieces!
