Hello from Massachusetts

Hi, I'm Nicki Lee. Last year I constantly checked out all the beautiful bead work on the BJP and fell in love. I kept telling myself "next year" I want to try this. I am so excited to be a part of such a diverse group of talent and can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

I am a Crazy Quilt addict and love to create anything and everything using beads, lace and color. For my project I have decided to go with the one thing that calms me and also will be easy to incorporate my favorite colors of blue and green - the ocean/seashore. Living close to Cape Cod I have plenty of inspiration and hope to depict the change in seasons. I'm looking forward to starting my first ever BJP this coming week.

Cape Cod is one of my favorite places, so I'll be watching your pieces with excitement.

One can't have a better sea infuence than Cape COd!! I grew up there and lived there through my college years- went to college in Norton Ma, at WHeaton!! Probably not too far away form where you are living. I go home evry summer to visit family and friends and the OCEAN at Nauset Beach. My daughter and I are sea adicts and she spends hours upon hours in the surf. I too am new to BJP and really look forward to seeing how the sea speaks to you!!!
P.S I have lots of posts about CC on my blog!!
Welocme! Great to meet you!! Hugs!

Do you intend that all of your pieces will "explore" the ocean/seashore???? I love this idea... to "paint" the same subject in different seasons and in different moods over a year's time is such a pathway to artistry!!!! I'm looking forward to seeing how you manifest your subject in beads, lace and color!!! Welcome to the project, Nicki Lee!

Gerry... LOL! You know me - it's gotta be blue!

Barbara - I love Cape Cod too but also love the Cape May too!
