|This pattern should work up to be just about 7 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide...and as always - if you use one of my free patterns, I'd love to see a pic! ;)|
I'm a sucker for team spirit though, so even though I am not a Ravens fan, I do enjoy seeing all the spirit around here. The excited, positive energy is pretty awesome. I think it was last year, when I swore to my husband, I could actually FEEL the excitement taking place 16 miles away during a Ravens home playoff game!
So enough football! I've been pretty silent...but busy with my real job! Also my husband turned 50 last weekend so I threw him a semi-surprise party!
Thankfully, although I'm working anywhere from 10-12 hours a day with the festival coming up in three weeks, I've been able to steal away at the end of the day and work on some beady projects...
I also have been working on my fourth square for the Bead It Forward quilt - a hummingbird. I have this tray in the kitchen so when I'm sitting with my guys after dinner or coffee in the moring I can work on it!
A couple weeks ago on New Years Day, I had the pleasure of joining a group of women at Bead Soup in Savage, MD for an event called "Flocking Together" where everyone attending made a square for the quilt! There were at least 20 beaders there! How cool is that? The store provided patterns and beads and the beaders worked up the pattern.
Check out a handful of the squares that were made!!!

Finally - I just have to share this pic of my sweet 5 month old puppy. If it looks staged....well, that's because it is....sort of....little Bingo likes to lay his head on pillows....my husband put the blanket over him! LOL! How CUTE IS HE!?!?!?
|(Yes, he is wearing a sweater, but we just got his hair cut and he shivers without it!)|
