Birthday Muse

For my birthday on January 22 I received Thom Atkins' book Beading Artistry for Quilts and I was inspired to work (play) some more on my stars for 2012's BJP. By February 22 I had finished two more stars. I will post photos on my blog. I made the trip last year to LaConner Quilt museum to see Thom's work and was awestruck. I took lots of photos but we all know that viewing a piece in person tells a different story than photos. This book is full of inspirational photos and some sage advice.I highly recommend it. Thanks Thom.
Here are parts of the two stars I have finished and I have another in progress and so many ideas that I don't know sometimes where to on to beading...Vickie
