Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!

I didn't do a whole lot yesterday, as I was recovering from a stomach bug.  But on the upside, inactivity sometimes can lead to lots of beading productivity.  Basically - I felt fine as along as I wasn't moving around too much, so I sat with my beads all day yesterday & the day before.  I printed out some of the patterns I created for the Bead It Forward quilt and was amazed two days later to see I finished FIVE! 

The two-drop peyote pieces work up so fast!! 


I also started playing around with some ideas for the Bead Journal Project.  I signed up pretty recently, and have many ideas but I"m not exactly sure yet, where I want to take this!


I chuckled to myself when I pulled out this yellow flair to start some sketching on the backing.  I have always eschewed the yellow flair.  And sometimes even lambasted its existence!  "Why can't they put a better color in the five-pack of flairs!?!"  Then, today when I wanted a pencil to start sketching, and couldn't find one, the wonderful little yellow flair showed it's purpose (to me) in this world! 


  1. Hi,Amy:-)
    Colorful pictures had attracted my attention and wanted to know,what 'colorful pictures' You're presenting and when I saw them all as BEADWOVEN PICTURES,my happines has no end:-)
    They are all so cute.What are You going to do with them finally? Frame,to be hanged somewhere,or to make the pendants from them?
    So beautiful idea-should be used in a fine way-I believe,You'll find their suitable destination:-)
    I also had the 'stomach bug'.I am not feeling myself yet,but hope to recover soon.
    Warm Greetings-Halinka-

  2. Those are so cool! I love it. I think I've mentioned before that I can't do flat peyote at all. Am still kicking around this bead journal project....

  3. Hi Amy,
    Love the little two drop peyote squares they are going to be a beautiful quilt. Good luck with your journal project. I am going to enjoy seeing what you come up with. I guess there is always a purpose for everything even a yellow Flair pen.
