Blogging from A-Z • C

C is for CHAMELEON.....

Back in November of 2014, Bead-It-Forward put a call out for patterns to be submitted for use in the Bead-It-Forward project.  The only requirement is that they be animal themed.  Nearly 50 patterns were contributed from bead artists around the world!  They were all gorgeous, and many beaders used them for their square donations.

A group of beaders from Poland sent in five patterns, including this darling chameleon.  It was used many times.   I love to see everyone's use of beads with different finishes and color.   Here's a sampling of what came into the Bead-It-Forward headquarters:
Sharon of Iowa

Jodi of Wisconsin

Chris of Wisconsin

Weronika of New Mexico

Therese of Alabama
Barbara of North Carolina
Linda  of Texas
Leslie of Texas
Jennifer of Ohio

I hope you enjoyed all the iterations of the chameleon pattern.  I can't wait to see what the beading group in Poland has created.  Seems their actual squares are in international postal limbo right now, unfortunately! But I remain hopeful they will arrive in the US soon!.

Please come back tomorrow for the letter "D".  If you'd like to see what others A-Z bloggers are writing about, click here.
