I've talked about it several times now as I worked on this piece - and now the time is finally here! The voting has started for this month's Etsy Bead Weavers Challenge and there are a LOT of impressive entries to choose from. Normally I show the challenge mosaic when I announce the voting, but there seems to be a glitch with it right now. So I'm showing off my piece again :) Make sure you head over to the blog to vote! You can click on all the individual links to see the different pieces :)
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who gave suggestions for the piece pictured below. The top two suggestions I got were "Shades of Nepal" and "Jacob's Ladder." I really like both of them, but I decided to go for "Shades of Nepal" on this piece, and I'll save Jacob's Ladder for a piece, not yet created, not yet even imagined, some where in the future :) I've fallen in love with this stitch, so I'm sure it'll come in handy at some point!
