I have completed my February BJP. I went a little different route for this months beaded rock. I joking call it my retro rock. My friends at work say it looks more like an Easter egg. I guess it does.
I didn't really say too much about my beaded rocks on my first post. Most of these rocks were gathered from Lake Superior this summer when I bugged my father to go on a road trip to find these rocks. I felt we would find good rocks that had smooth surface here due to the water just right for beading. We did not find a lot of good rocks. Only a few. But we had a wonderful trip and it was a beautiful day. Quality time spent with my father. My father is in FL for the winter so I can not wait til he comes home and sees what I have done with these rocks.
I also recently went to one of our local antique stores and found these treasures there. I just love the dollies with the butterflies on it. There were two of butterfly dollies in the basket. Plus I found 3 others that will be prefect of my quilts. I just wish I knew the people who made these wonderful dollies. I would like to tell them that they have found a good home. Maybe those people are looking down at me and know. It's a nice thought.
I would also like to thank everyone who has stopped by my new blog and have left messages and become followers. Thank you all VERY much. I will try my best to provide you with inspiration as best as I can.
Also don't forget to stop by to see the online crazy quilt competition. There are some truly beautiful crazy quilted items in this show. And don't for get to vote.


  1. Beth I see your comments in my email but not here. Anyways there is a detailed 'how to' to makes these beaded rock on my blog here. The beads are actually glued on to the surface of the rock. I think its under 'Beaded rock'

    And thank you Beth and Robin for your complements. Its fun to share my work. I live in a very small town and there are not alot of beaders here. Most people just don't 'get it'.

  2. I'm in love with all the colors and textures! This must have been so much fun to design and bead. What a fun paperweight it would be. How could you possibly have a bad day with this on your desk?

  3. I love the bright colors with the black and white checked accent! This rock rocks!
