I'm very pleased with the colors I chose as I was dying the sheets of fabric paper. I think they all go together beautifully and tie-in really well with the colors in my living room. Even hubby got excited as I was joining the last few jump rings together. He said he couldn't visualize what I was trying to do as I worked on the individual parts. Now he gets it! :) I ended up with 94 squares (3" x 3"), all beaded, with 4 eyelets and jump rings to each square.
Here is a closeup of a few of the squares:

It felt so good to complete this project. It turned out just as I had envisioned it! I fell in love with the smaller version of this in the book, Stitch Alchemy, by Kelli Perkins. It wouldn't leave my head! As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it. But I knew I wanted to do a much larger version of it than what was in the book. And I'd have to figure out how to hang it on something larger. It all worked out just fine. The rod is 36" wide and the finished piece fits perfectly in the space I wanted to put it into.
If finishing every project gives me such a feeling of satisfaction, I'm off to a good start for the New Year. I think I picked the perfect word of intent as my focus.
