January BJP done!!!

I was already signed up for BJP when I was able to take the wonderful class on bead embroidery in November from Robin Atkins... I came home so excited that I plunged ahead with my project. So I will be doing two pieces in January and will have one extra for a month that I run out of time. I chose 3 1/2 by 5 inches and it didn't take all that long with #11 beads. But Robin has me totally hooked on #15 beads and that takes a whole lot longer...

Since I've spent most of my adult life involved with wild birds and their habitat, it seemed to be the most appropriate theme for me...

Geryy I read so much of your blog I don't know what to comment on first. Stold a few of your recipes they sounded so good. I loved your dolls. I am new to crazy quilting so I learned so much. I like your stumpwork I have 2 books on stumpwork embroidery and I love the history of it.You have great ideas on embellishing squares that look done even more.
Happy New Year

I'm enjoying, and being inspired by, a couple early birds for January -- this is lovely! Looking forward to your next one.

Oooo, lovely! I'm excited about the BJP too - but not THAT excited (about 1/2 way done for January!)

Love your January piece - I love birds, too! What really grabs me is the composition - birds are so active and you've captured that wonderfully!

Today is catch-up on blogs day, and here I am pleased as punch with your January BJP... AWESOME to the max!!!! I could tell in class that you were going to take this bull by the horns and run, run, run with it! Is this your original design? I love magpies... one of my three favorite birds!!! Robin A.
