Great Fun

When placing an order with my suppliers, I like to browse through the available items rather than doing a ‘quick order’ by just entering the item numbers I need. This can sometimes be very dangerous or lead me to new and wonderful things.

As I was placing my C-Lon order, I came across the new neon colors. Well of course I had to get some. I have visions for using them in kumihimo, embroidery, crochet, macrame, etc., etc. (I’m thinking about a project or two I might do).

From Miscellaneous

Don’t you just love the colors? Clockwise, from top left, Neon Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Green and Neon Pink. As the other colors, they are just $3.75 for an 83 yard spool. All the colors I have in stock (over 65) can be found on my website – http://www.patpowelldesigns.com.

Bead Quilt Squares 2014

Time again for submitting bead quilt squares.

From Beadwork

Every year this project is sponsored by the folks from Bead & Button magazine at their annual conference. This project, which was begun by an individual, uses monies collected from the sale of bead quilts as well as other items utilizing theses squares for breast cancer research. Each year there is a different theme selected. This year’s theme is ‘Turn the Tide Against Breast Cancer’. So what may look like stars, in my squares, are really starfish. These little squares are 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″. There’s not too much detail that can be contained in that area.

Now that I have finished my squares it’s time to go on to other projects. More on those later.
