A Quill on the Horizon

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I have been beading all weekend.  Some of it I can not show since it is for Christmas.  But, I can tell you that I had to do the frog stitch.  For those of you who don't know what the frog stitch is it is when you have to rip apart work that you already did for whatever reason; ripit, ripit, ripit.  Get it?!? Anyways!  Yea I was not too happy about it but I did fix the issue and now I am happy about that.  I think that even if I started on Christmas ornaments in July I would still be behind!

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Horizon.  I love the look of the horizons here, which kinda inspired this weeks inchie.  I used 4 colors of Delicas and made a bright blue sky with a beautiful sun and one lone cloud.


Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Quill.  What a nice word that is so hard to display in beads.  But I used a feather pattern that I designed last year then added an ink pot next to it.  Easy!  So here it is.


Also this last week me and my daughter went to see the Impractical Jokers.  It was so great, we had so much fun!  I had pics but they were all blurry and no I did not get to meet the guys, wouldn't that have been cool!  OH YEAH!

Well, that is it this week, a short and sweet one as I have to get up early for PT.  But before I go I would like to urge you all to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the other artists work.  Who knows you might just want to join in.
