Beadlust: Jan BJP Finished! More on God's Eye Quilt

I love your latest concept for this year's BJP. The January piece shows how less (beading) can be more. And especially I like the beaded "roads" that escape the boundaries of the beading cloth. You amaze me!

This is my three french hens for the book I am doing for the twelve days of Christmas. Evelyn.
Finally getting to post my third piece for this year. Had great expectations to do all of the 12 days of Christmas pictures but this year has been a real busy one for me and the three french hens are as far as I got. I have decided to not do the bead journal next year. I will try and finish this project first . Please check my blog funky beading for updates on what I am doing. Will try and do more blogging next year.Will keep checking on what everyone is doing. See you in 2012. Lise
