I finally got the finishing touches on the Bead Journal piece that I started several weeks ago. I'm very pleased with how the lake stones look against the beadwork. From top left, the stones stand for Spring, Summer, Fall and winter. The copper Etal backing does a nice job of representing the Copper Country of Upper Michigan. Now I have a total of 6 pieces to back - not the year's worth that I had hoped to have, but given the hecticness of the past year, a respectable amount.
