Bead&Button Bead-It-Forward

So I haven't spent much time in my bead room lately...much to my chagrin.  I have enjoyed reading my new Beadwork and Bead&Button and I love the concept behind Bead & Button's Bead-It-Forward which the founder: "corralled squares of beadwork from around the world and pieced them together to form bead quilts that were donated for" their annual [charity] auction.  

Since I've had a huge workload lately and been spending most of my time in front of the computer I decided to draft some bird patterns for this great bead-y cause.  I haven't worked any of them up yet, though I intend to try one or two of them this weekend.  But if anyone would like to work up a square, you are more than welcome to use one or some or all of the pattern's I've created!  The deadline for submission is March 12 and I hope to post several more bird patterns between now & then!

Happy Beading (and here's to hoping i get a few hours in the bead room this weekend!)

And in other new puppy is doing great...and could he be any cuter!?!

...and if you are so inclined...and can spare 1 minute and 13 is a video that (in my humble opinion) is pretty cute and funny!


  1. Ok, that is just too much cuteness factor! My dog has a binkie too, and it's so funny to watch her drag it around the house.
    Thanks for the patterns. I'll try to get one made as well.

  2. absolutely adorable :) Both of them just too cute

  3. Amy, thank you for sharing the patterns. I read the article in B&B and thought I would give it a try. What program do you have on the compter that helps make the bead patterns? I am very interested in getting a program to do this. Your little puppy is adorable.

  4. LOL-- thats adorable. Great patterns too...


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
