Excitement Around the Globe!

I've been creatively in the doldrums for the last few months... so bless every one of you for your excitement about starting the BJP!!! It's highly contageous, thank goodness, and has lifted my spirits considerably. Today I've set aside time to dig through my stash of fabrics and beads to pick things I love for September's piece. I don't know what it will be, don't have a theme... haven't even decided on the size yet... I'll just start and see what happens. Yay!!!

So many of you have fabulous ideas for this... I've so enjoyed reading your posts on all three of our blogs. Also, thanks to those leaving comments... and to the returning members who are generously sharing their wisdom and experience. This is so fine!

If you'd like to see the smallest BJP pieces from last year, you can check here on my blog and scroll to the bottom of the post. I posted some thoughts about the size of our pieces here on Blog #2.

Thanks for being here... thanks for your enthusiasm... thanks for posting!

Thanks Robin - You just helped me make up my mind about the size of my pages this time - I was teetering on the "don't want to do too large that I get bored but don't want to go too small and not have space to have fun'

I've settled on 6 x 6 squares - thank goodness - now I can finally begin.

I rather think you will be out of those doldrums pretty quickly with this lively bunch of BJP'ers this year!

Although completely new to this "setup", I have already found out that one of its dominating overall characteristics is the supportive spirit. Each BJPer is giving strength to their fellow members, and vice versa taking the others' helping hand when needed. The magic of positive energies. It's lovely to be part of this.
Best wishes, Sabine

Good to see you you here! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with this year. I've chosen a unique shape that hopefully works. Started this weekend and I'm happy so far! What another great year-long project!!!
Cheers, Denise
