What I've Been Up to

      I was going through my bead collection recently and thought to myself that I really needed to edit my stash. Even tubes of beads take up space when there are enough of them!


Serendipitously, on the same day I read a post on the Craft Hope blog about an Orphan Outreach program looking for handmade bracelets for children in Russia. You can read about it here. I was immediately inspired by the idea of making bracelets to bring smiles to abandoned children's faces, so I've been beading away while watching tv at night. If you're interested, the deadline for this project is June 15.

And, as it is a new month, I'm declaring June to be "Landscape Month" on my blog. I've talked about this before, the fact that I had begun some fabric landscapes, and this whole month will be dedicated to finishing them, and creating others in mixed media!

So, stay tuned........and, by the way, Happy June!!!

Hi Judy,
These bracelets are so pretty! I admire your lovely sense of colours. The children will be extremely happy whenever they see the pretty bracelets they are wearing and be comforted by your kindness!!

I'm really enjoying your pillow (I must confess that I still can't give it to my furry guy yet. It is just too pretty. I like looking at it and touching the soft fabric)

Have a wonderful June!
