January - 'And the Bead Goes On...' finished

I didn't get much done today as I was out and about with friends for a change. Well I wouldn't have got much done then anyway as we woke up to no electricity! By the time I was back, it was on, but I had other things to catch up on. So, I will get back to stitching skirts tomorrow.

So, even though I plan to show the rest of January's beads on Sunday, I will show the collection today. I have been doing a sample of what I hope to do for February. But you will have to wait til Sunday for that!

Don't they look fun? I almost don't want to stop with January!

And to be honest, although 31 sounds like a lot, when you see them together, you realise there are not quite enough to do something with - or at least if you are thinking of them in the lines of embellishing a quilt or garment with them. But I think it will keep it fresh if I plan on doing the fabric beads on alternate months. I have made a little list of other things to try, and there seem to be about 6 main ideas, so those will work for inbetween months.

I will come back and link this to Off the Wall Friday at Nina-Marie's tomorrow when the links open up.

Wow, these beads are impressive. Especially when they are displayed all together like this. I may have to look up all those fabric beads I made some time ago. I could give them new life. Thanks for posting.
