Double Infinity - June's block ready for viewing!

Since June is my birth month, I wanted this block to be special to me. I had these really cool half faces I though represent the duality of gemini's and just had to use them! I searched all through my fabric and decided on the 'reverse' side of an oriental teal brocade - imagine that! I've shown a small piece of the fabric for you to see. Don't know what to say - all my pieces seem to look the same to me, an organic bubling effect of color and texture. My favorite beads on this piece are the 4 blue ones on the upper left - i'm at a loss for their name, but think it starts with a c??? Lot of fire polish here - and the picot edging is just perfect. Hope you enjoy it as much as i do! You can go to Flickr to see a larger picture at http://www.flickr.com/photos/30235567@N07/3665757898/in/pool-871696@N21

February BJP

I must confess that I have become a bit of a BJP slacker. I have four (almost five) completed pieces that I have yet to share with you all. My goal is to get them all photographed and blogged about within the next week. First up is my February piece and I'd like to invite you to check it out on my blog if you're in the mood for a virtual trip to a beaded tropical sea.

I am absolutely blown away by the wonderful bead work that everyone has shared through the BJP blogs. I am continually inspired by every one's creativity and am deeply moved by the heartfelt honesty that is shared through the BJP. I consider myself very fortunate indeed to be a part of this group!

Happy Beading!!

... One more month done!

I managed to tackle May within May... despite it now being June before I decided to upload a photograph. I chose to bead a sketch from St. Michel du Cuxa for May - Bruno actually said he wanted to see this one in beads. So, I've done it! It's uploaded on my blog... or you can click on the 'sneak peek' there and it will take you right there!

Happy beading!!

Believe it or not . . .

At long last, I have three months' worth of BJP projects posted on my blog. Never been this far behind before! As soon as another batch is mounted and ready, they will find their way to the blog soon, too.
