Just checking in...

Hi Everyone... Just wanted to say I'm keeping up, nearly finished with May's BJP piece. But, I still have to photograph March, April and May so I can get them posted on Beadlust. Should be soon. Happy spring to all (except, happy fall to those in Southern hemisphere).

April Spring Piece

Here is my April spring piece. I tried being even more random then I usually am, and I like the way it turned out. Visit my blog for more photographs. Hope everyone is having a beautiful and creative spring.

I had a time-problem the last weeks and got bad behind with my project. I didn´t want to quit, so I decided to restart it with smaller pieces. I did the january and february pieces again in smaler size and I am ready with march, april and may, too, so I am happy in time again.

April done and dusted!

 I didn't quite expect to finish my April piece by the end of the month, because we were moving house, but I did manage to do so with a couple of days to spare.

It's here.  I have chosen the focal piece for May but haven't sorted through colourways yet.  The house is hopelessly disorganised though I am managing to get a bit of crating time most days!

Slick Trick

The experienced beaders out there may have already know about this but I just discovered it for myself and thought I would share it.

I use small zipper plastic bags to store my beads. I bought a couple of hanks of seed beads the other day. It's always a struggle to get strung beads into the bags and not all over the floor. This time I had the bright idea to cut the strings of the hank over this pitcher (just a little creamer I picked up at the thrift shop one day).

For the most part it worked like a dream. The beads slide off the stings and into the pitcher. I'll admit that a few beads did get away from me but that was because I was trying to shoot the pictures while holding the top of the hank.

Once I had all the beads in the pitcher I was able to easily pour them into the baggie.

Because it's a small pitcher I didn't even need a funnel or anything.

I have no reports to make on finished bead journal projects unfortunately. I did January and have February partly done but I've been sewing quilts lately instead of beading. One of these days I'll get caught up and I'll invite y'all over to my blog for a party!

new BJP photos

I finished 2 more, see here for photos.  I'm experimenting with different ways to edge them, using fun yarns for these.
