May BJP 2011

This piece of fabric was given to me by a good friend Janita.  It is beautiful Pakistani cotton with a lovely brown border.  I used a lot of my favorite and more costly beads on it, nothing else would do it justice.
here is a close up of the brown banding.
and a lovely charm my sister Stacia sent to me in a box of goodies.
Have a lovely day! xx

April BJP

Here is my submission for my April Bead Journal Project.  As I said before I got a little side tracked with my cross stitching and other interests.  This lovely fabric is from a fairy series and these are all just wings.  I think the colors are beautiful.  I never have a plan when I start these squares I choose the fabric piece first and then I prepare it by basting it to a felt backing.  I then proceed to stare at it until something comes to me.  I hope you enjoy this one.  May square is started so stay tuned in the next week or so it will be posted.  Have  a lovely day!
