I have signed up for an online course sponsored by the EGA. It's called "Creating Beaded Gardens," taught by Nancy Eha. It starts with creating a crazy quilt block, and then using beads to create a spider web and spider, vines and leaves, and assorted flowers. I haven't actually started working on this yet, but have enjoyed watching other stitchers post photos of their progress.
One student, after seeing a bunch of different photos, left the post that all the quilt blocks were so very "fiddle rent." I think her auto-correct got the best of her on that one!
Anyway, the reason I'm not working on creating my beaded garden is that I've been working on a number of other projects.
First is a piece I found on the "Stash Unload" Facebook page. It brought a smile to my face when I saw it. It's called "The Sampler Sampler" by Brightneedle Charted Designs. I've stitched lots and lots of samplers over the years, but until now, not a Sampler of Samplers.
Second, is a piece I am doing for my pastor. It's a Lizzie Kate design, "Time for God." I'll be making this into a bell pull.
And my most recent completion, another Lizzie Kate design, "My To Do List."
