BJP So Far!

Hi, all!
Robin asked if I'd post a pic of where I'm at so far with this year's project. I haven't finished February, but you can see my sketch, & how far I've beaded, here if you'd like.
Warmest aloha,

November Bead Project Finished

Finally I have November finished and you can see it at Despite the reintal detachment I was able to finish another project and now am working on January. Yes, I know they are out of order, but I can't help it. I believe the point is to get them done so I am trying. Thanks to all who gave me warm wishes for getting well. I thank God for his healing power. Ya'll have fun now!

Mystery beadwork!

vintage bead embroidery, Robin Atkins collection
I just wrote a post here about beadwork of mysterious origins. Please take a look and let me know if you recognize it (or call it to the attention of someone who might). Although it's not directly about my BJP work, one or two of the designs may inspire my next piece... guess which ones ;>} ... who knows, maybe inspiration for you too!

February Cuff Done early, yay!

For a few months, I was having a hard time getting motivated to get done before the end of the month, not this time!
You can see my February offering here. I'm pleased with this one, it's only taken 6 months for me to get into a groove.

January and February Done and Posted ~ Finally!

I have finally finished and posted my January and February BJP pages. It's been a very busy and crazy start to this year for me, with a lot of changes to come.

I do apologize that I have not had any time to keep up with anyone. I really miss having the time to look and read everyone's pages. I've been so out of the loop (in many areas) for too long. Hoping that will change very soon!

You can view both here. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

December is finally finished!

Hi all,

I took one month away to bead a pair of ballet slippers for an exhibition. Now, I'm proud to say that I finished my December BJP and have started my January BJP. I hope to catch up before the month of March. In the mean time, here is my Dec. page.

Beadily yours

Latest Page completed

Here it is, the month of February-the time of cupids, hearts and getting my January page completed.  You can find my January page here:

If you like to see my February offering for the Eyes Have It come on over to and you can see a new hobby also.  That is two for one, plus you can get your own scannable code for your website.  

I'm just going to tease you with I've had a mind's eye inspiration for a fairly large beaded mural!  Can't tell you more than that yet.  It is still in the construction stages!

Poll + Feb BJP progress

Have you added your responses to the BJP poll yet? It's on the sidebar, 2nd item down.

It will go off-line Sunday evening, so if you're interested you might want to check the responses now! A couple of the responses surprise me... that some people only read their assigned BJP blog, that 10% of the poll respndents are not BJP members and that 86% of our BJP blog readers frequently follow links to members' blogs. Anything surprise you???

Today I posted a picture of my Feb. BJP in progress. You can see it here.

Valentine hugs to all,
Robin A.

New Link

I finally had a second to look here and I am glad someone discovered my link does not work. Sorry about that! I am very new to blogging and not very computer literate. Hopefully that will change with time. Anyway, here is my link again.

Let's hope it works this time.

Behind, but January's Done!

You can see my January Rune here ! I'm behind on projects so haven't been able to keep up as much! But now that I got January done, I get to go see what all of you have been doing!!! Yea!
Warmest aloha,

Slow but Still Plodding Along

I finally finished my November page. Yes, yes I know, it is February. I am probably the biggest behinder this year. Not only that but I fell out of keeping up with all your blogs. I apologize for that. Once I got really behind and Christmas stuff got me behinder I felt too bad to spend my time blogging and not beading. I plan to spend the next two evenings playing catch up. I hope I don't find everyone got as behind as me! If you forgive me and want to see my page it is right here on my blog. See you soon!

January BJP Complete

I just finished my January BJP and posted about it here on my blog. Have a beautiful day!

January cuff finished!

The rest of it can be seen at my blog Flying Fish . I'm pretty happy with this one, but rediscovered how hard it is to use silvery beads and a.b. beads under an Ott light. I kept having to shade the piece to see if it looked ok, especially the face.
