Progress on May BJP

I did get started on May's BJP while I was in Alaska but I have no hopes of getting it done by the end of the month... I have 2 other projects that need to be postmarked before May 31 and this can wait and be late. Stitching time is practically nonexistent this month competing with absolute necessary outside chores...
We have both the Western Bluebird and the Mountain Bluebird in our area.. It is usually the red-breasted Western Bluebird that have nested here although I haven't seen any this year.

I've posted a photo and information on my next piece on my blog.

I know I've been MIA lately but I'm still here. I spent the beginning of the year in Australia (my first piece on the left which I've already talked about). I was also there for the month of February where I was forced to take a good look at myself and my family & what everything means (the reason for the glasses & the mirror. Hard to see but there is a picture of my family in the picture frame).

My March piece is not completed yet but will be soon. I'm incorporating buttons I made with my Dad while in Australia.

The final piece on the right is for April. I was in Hong Kong for this money where I turned 50! Where have the years gone. I used an opal to represent each person in my family - a precious stone for my precious family.

I decided to sew my pieces to an ultra suede band that slips over the front cover of my journal. Seems to work the best. I have been writing for the month in these journals. Unfortunately they have ended up being extremely personal (something I didn't expect) so I won't be showing those pages :)

delete I don't get how to post. It goes to the wrong place!

Finished my March "page", yeah!

And now I have a dilemma.  I haven't even made the vessel yet for April, so I have nothing on which I can bead.  Perhaps later this week I can get to it (keeping my fingers crossed...).

Here are the 4 sides of my March vessel.  And you can check my blog to see what my inspiration was.

I've gotten very far behind in viewing everyone's work so far.  Boy oh boy, when I can finally slow down a bit, I'm going to have a fabulous time catching up!
