I did do something idiotic. I wasn't thinking and sold my March bear, Shawnee. After I was unpacking from AFIC, I realized it was gone. I really don't think I'm going to make another one, so when I display this year's BJP pieces I guess I'll just have to add a photo of Shawnee.

Hi All -
Here's my May brooch, part of my future wall hanging. You can see all the May flowers blossoming with the happy Spring colors. View May BJP My Gallery only allows a certain number of pieces on each page, so the May piece is on page two. If you'd like to see all of my pieces, just click on Page 1 to view the rest. I'm really pleased with the way my pieces look and can't wait to see the wall hanging completed. Remember to click on the photo to see a larger image and to read about the piece.
Have a great month.

ABOVE IS MY FIRST CRAZY QUILT BLOCK CREATED FOR A CLASS ON JOGGLES. LOTS OF BEADS!!
Okay, I know it's almost the end of May, but i finally finished my April piece a few days ago. My youngest came into my craft room and said "mommy - why isn't that done yet, you are always so on time!" Well, let's see, there was the embellished crazy quilt class i took on Joggles (see photo above - i just had to share it with you!!), and my 100 year old grandfather's passing to keep me busy. But i am already almost done with May, so i guess i've caught up! I started my April block with a lovely batik and used the flow of the colors to create an organic "Spring Blossoming". I really love the sparkle of the true cuts. Hope you like it too! Heres the link to get a better look up close. http://www.flickr.com/photos/30235567@N07/3546596332/in/pool-871696@N21

Hi all - just finished my May piece which is the 1st time I've tried to make a landscape. I also included some ribbon embroidery. I'm excited about next month because I'm taking a crazy quilting class so those techniques will be used in June. This is right up my alley. But back to May - View May BJP here. All my pages have a roll over so if you are viewing the back of the mirror, move your mouse off the image to see the beaded side. Take care and Have a Beady Good Day. Karen

Just a little slice of heaven, aka April. Forsythia and rain, daffodils and dandelions. What a wonderful time of year. It is so hard to be depressed, what with the mysteries poking through the ground, trees with their new leaves and more sunlight every day! Simplistic I know, but sometimes simple is good! Take a look at my complete April piece. Happy beading!

I really was falling behind - since my March Journal page kinda became two pages, I've had a few commissions, and I'm still catching up from going to Europe... I'm happy to be caught up and I'm working on May's journal page in MAY! YAY!!
If you click on my 'Sneak Peek' to the left, or click here you can see the whole piece (along with a little ramble on my insanity...)
