Top photo is my bead journal for the month of November. It is truly a mixed media piece. I started with a piece of shell a friend gave to me. That set the theme. I added some small shells, a shell button and some paper clay shells that I had made. I also added a piece of a silk pod. I created a crocheted and beaded spiral as well.
Bottom photo is the progress I have made on my fabric book. I wish I had more time to work it but it is progressing nicely.

http://pintangle.com/ shows us how to do this week. I believe I have done the Cable Chain Stitch before so that wasn't difficult. I did however have trouble getting the threaded part to be even. I was doing okay and then something went wrong and I couldn't get it back. I refuse to allow myself to get too bent about out of shape about something not being perfect. Done is better than perfect. Moving forward.

I gutted an old accounting text book. That felt kind of good! Sometimes I wonder how I ever found that interesting. Anyway, with just the cover left I decided to paint, emboss, glitter and sparkle it. It seems a fitting way to say goodbye to bookkeeping. Not that I will ever totally say goodbye to that side of me. Now I need to create some wonderful pages to go into this 'new' book cover.

http://pintangle.com/2014/11/11/take-a-stitch-tuesday-138-barb-stitch-and-139-beaded-barb-stitch/ It is a cool stitch and has a lot of potential. I decided to try it on my December bead journal. Yes, I am jumping a bit ahead as my November bead journal is almost done and this stitch wouldn't work with it.
