I have completed my March beaded rock for the BJP. I know I am ahead of schedule but I have extra time on my hands and might as well be productive. I also don't have a lot of other distraction in my life beside work and maybe my doggies but they are not really a distraction. They just need some love once in awhile. Also this stuff is a passion of mine. I love working with all the fabrics and beads along with silk ribbon and all the other wonderful stuff in my collection. Sometimes I joke that I could open my own craft store with all the stuff I have collected over the years. I'm sure there are a lot of you in the same boat. Lots of stuff and I've been thinking lately I might as well start using some of it up. What am I saving it for? So this is one of the reasons I've been really kicking out the projects lately.
I really like how this rock turned out. I started with the porcelain jasper and selected my seed and bugle beads off of that stone. The colors are greys and pinks. This rock took about 5 days to make. I work long days but when I come home I usually pick up my projects and cannot put them down. I often look at the time and have to tell myself to go to bed. I think twice this week I went to bed after 2 a.m.
Well next on my list is my 5th CQJP block. I want to write a book on crazy quilting soon and I want to complete a few more crazy quilts before I tackle that project. Probably another reason I am working so hard on these CQ blocks. I want to put this quilt in the book. I also like to challenge myself to improve my skills with each quilt. To bring up my game so to speak. Well off I go.
