Blogging from A-Z • A

A is for ANIMAL THEME

This month, for the Blogging from A-Z challenge, I will be blogging about Bead-It-Forward.

Bead-It-Forward is a project where beaders from around the world donate 1.5x1.5inch beaded squares, which are then assembled into quilts, shadow boxes and other crafted object.  These assembled items are then auctioned off (this year at Bead Fest Philadelphia in August) and the money raised is donated breast cancer research and care.  Here are some examples from last year's sea-themed Bead-It-Forward!



I plan to highlight some of this year's submitted squares throughout the month and other things related to Bead-it-Forward!
Here are some "A" animals that were submitted:
Antelope sent in by Pauline of New Mexico
Animal from The Muppets sent in by Barbara of North Carolina
Antelope sent in by Maria of Louisiana
Arachnid by P. Elena of New Mexico


See you tomorrow for the Letter B!
(Be sure to check out some of the other A-Z bloggers!!)
