Here is the printed color card from the Take it Further Challenge shown with the items from my stash that I will use to create a beaded square. Surprisingly I had more purple stuff that worked than Green! In a sense I'm also doing a bit of a tribute to someone I looked up to - my gram would have had safety pins and ribbons and bits of things in her apron pocket on any given day. She picked things up as she went and sorted them out (or not...) later.

The center color is not really pink but lavendar. I tried taking a photo of the beads out of the plastic tubes, but those photos aren't even as color correct as this one seems to me on my monitor. I edited out one tube as being too red violet instead of blue violet. The heart shaped piece has some other colors worked into it - it's a polymer clay piece I made from scraps and so it really belongs in here, too.

I have enough to cover a huge area... so more editing will happen as I go along. The reason I'm working small - other than the obvious one of being able to finish in a month is also that there is a another challenge that this fits into - crossing off two items on my list with one project. Is that wrong?

It must be something women do with those bits and pins. I find now that I have all kinds of things pinned to me! Nice start on your piece!
