A new State joins the BJP - Nevada

Last month I had the opportunity to go visit my cousin Patrick in Flagstaff Arizona.  We took a little roadtrip to Las Vegas and in doing so, I had been to a new state to add to my BJP collection of state quarter magnets.  The inspiration for this month's BJP was so loud, I had to put it to the top of the quarter pile, so to speak and whipped up the piece in a day!

Strange But True...

... I have actually completed one page! This is the preview, and you can see the entire piece on my blog, if you like.

July Bjp

For my July BJP, continuing with my tree theme, I did a live oak with moss.  After a lot of thought, I decided to use embroidery floss for moss instead of beads and I like it.  There are enough other beads there.

June PJP Finished!

bead embroidery by Robin Atkins, BJP June, garden
My purple thumbs seem to be greening, the subject for my June BJP!!! A bit more about that on my blog, here.

A very big beady project has entered my life... one that will take about 6 months to complete. While it's an incredible opportunity, it will suck my energy and time like never before. If you don't see me blogging and commenting as much for a while, please forgive me and know I'll be back as soon as possible.

BJPs this year are awesome!!!!

June's journey takes me back to being around 12 years old discovering the Mammoth Caves of Kentucky during a family vacation.

Whatever the sun has sung-July BJP

I haven't quite completed my project for July but it's mostly done!
the phrase for this month is whatever a sun has sung is you, and I need to add bells, to make it sing the right way, and a back with a pin so I can wear it and then it will be done.
and you can see it here in all it's sunny glory

Macrame, anybody?

Sorry, this is slightly off-subject... or so it seems...

I'm looking for anybody in the BJP who does macrame with beads, especially done with finer (lighter weight) cord. Please contact me if you do. Thanks!
