Life is Not Black and White

My camera is giving me 'fits' so since I can't take a new photo, here is an older one of my work in progress (it really is further along than this photo shows). After reading Robin Atkins book, One Bead at a Time, I decided I wanted to try Improvisational bead embroidery -- my first go at it is Life is Not Black and White -- it will be interesting to see where the beads lead me. Thanks for the incentive, Robin.
I did find a photo of this piece with a little more work done on it. (above)

I really like the button and fabric on this one...do you know what it will be yet? Pin, pendant, pillow?

Thanks, BB. This will (I hope) end up being a small (approx. 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch square) that will eventually be framed. I have no real plan for it -- I am just letting the beads lead me where they may. This is a first for me, and I am having a wonderful, relaxing time with it. It does take longer for me because I do a small portion -- and then set it aside until the urge to add more beads comes along. This is the piece that will be all black and white with shades of gray, silver, off white, etc. I hope to get a picture in the next few days if I can get my camera fixed.

Thanks, LB. I'm looking forward to more time to work on this piece.
