So let's dive in. This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Sofa and all I could think about was those tacky fabrics from the couches of the 1970's. Anybody else remember them (or try to forget them)? Of course you do! This pattern was awesome to design but being my head was foggy it was a bit of "fun" to bead.
Does it or does it not look like a '70's sofa? I used 4 colors of delicas. I do love the color combo. But I am so glad it was not on a bigger scale pattern, lol.
For a while I have been wanting to participate in Bead-it-Forward and I have been mulling it over and then one of my beady friends, Becca, mentioned that I should do some work for Bead-it-Forward. So I got off my butt and designed 3 patterns. I am hoping to get them all done, but for now I only have 1 done.
For those who don't know what Bead-it-Forward is, a bunch of bead artists send in 1.5 x 1.5 inch square of bead art that pertains to that years theme. Now the beautiful people in charge put all the squares together in small 9 square "quilts" and various other items, which then get auctioned off. 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. Each year they pick a different theme, this years theme is Space.
So for my first time joining I am really excited and I give you my first BIF piece.
I have yet to attach it to the backing but I have to get on it and send it in ASAP! Hope you like it. That is it for me this week. Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great artwork that the ladies have come up with, and maybe even join in the fun. Also go and check out Bead it forward to check out the great art work and get dates to when the auction will start. Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, I love them all.
