Back with the November page

Three months which were a little bit complicated, but I’ve not given up the BJP and I'm here again with the November page : ANGUISH.
A short visit on my blog and you will see what it looks like.

Big Sigh of Relief! December Piece is done.

A teaser's purpose is to tease.
Therefore, everybody, please
just guess and take it lightly
when I dare to ask you brightly:
What do you suppose this is?
Come on, have fun, and join the quiz.
If your brain seems kind of clogged,
simply click - look what I've blogged!


November and Backgrounds

November is being stitched as we speak and I have been experimenting with more backgrounds for Janaury and February. See more at didis beaded goodies
I would also like to say thank you for the comments, its great to think that somewhere out there someone is looking at my work.

Hello beading friends!

It's been a while since my last post, but I haven't forgot you and my BJP.

So I started from square one in November and now I've January and February undone.

Here's my October and December pieces, which I haven't post on my blog yet. I will, as I get my Janyary done.

Have a nice beading!

My January Piece

January to me is a time of fridgid temperatures, blue/grey skies, bare trees and snow, snow, snow. I was involved in a crazy quilted 4" X 4" swap on another group, and used a little larger version of this threadpainted tree. I loved the image so much, I decided to use it again. It's free motion machine embroidered on a scrap of upholstery fabric that was layered with gold Angelina Fibre. A rather wobbly, peyote stitched bezel, surrounds it. I wish I could say that I planned the wobble, but no, it's just one of those serendipity things. I think this might be my favourite, so far. Now, on to February! - Anne Marie - Toronto

Hi Folks,

Just a reminder during this time of Valentines, please take the time to bead a heart square for the 2009 breast cancer quilts. The guidelines and free patterns for heart squares can be found on my web site: Of course, you can also design your own square using any beadwork technique.
BTW, the completed quilts can be seen here: Those folks who already contributed squares are invited to print themselves an appreciation/participation certificate.
The deadline for me to receive heart squares is March 15, 2009, only a month and a half away. If you've been meaning to do a square, now may be the time to get started!
