Wow, is this really the end of the year! It has gone quickly. I decided to finish off the year with a lacy snowflake. We have had a draught here in the Midwest for several months and I am hoping for some moisture in the ground and a beautiful white Christmas. I thought maybe one snowflake would get things moving. I made this one up as I went along and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
This year of beading has been such a positive experience for me and you have all inspired me with your creative work. You have set the bar high. I have a ways to go, but feel I have learned so much just by observing, asking questions and practice...along with lots of patience. I have especially learned that nothing is gained by rushing through the process, but rather to slow down, do the best I can and enjoy the experience in order to get the best results. Thanks so much to all those instrumental in forming this group and in keeping it operating. I won't be participating in 2013 other than following your creations, but I am sure I will be doing some beading periodically throughout the year. Hopefully I can join up with the group again in 2014. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with in 2013!
I have decided to turn my BJP2012 into a banner and will share that on my blog when I complete it, so I hope you will check back. I am working on my CQJP 2012 wall hanging currently, but my hope is to complete the banner for this before the end of 2012 or in January at the latest.
