Next Mirrix Free Bead Pattern

This is my ode to spring, which must be right around some corner.  I designed directly with the bead software.  At first I tried to draw the pattern on paper, photograph it and then open it in the software.  I hated the results.  The black lines got blurred and the colors were muddy.  So I put my six hour drawing aside and went right to the software with the help of my Bamboo tablet and pen.  Turns out I could quite a lot of control drawing in the grid and was able to pick exactly the bead colors I wanted versus the bead colors the software wanted.   This is the result that will be posted as a download to our website next Tuesday:
