Tiny Beaded Butterfly




Finished






February 25, 2007

Second little butterfly begun. I've had this pretty butterfly button for a long time and decided to use it on one of the little "quilt blocks". Will finish this this afternoon or tonight ---

Finished







Here is the beginning of my first beaded butterfly square (1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches) for the Bead It Forward ~ Bead Artists Against Breast Cancer beaded quilt auction.



You will find more information and entry information on Jeannette’s website where she has posted photos of beaded squares that have already been submitted, and the four beaded quilts already completed.




Did a little more work on the butterfly tonight.
Yes, I know, I am flitting back and forth between projects -- the butterfly, the paisley and 2 crazy quilt blocks. I will get them all finished ;-)

BB yes, it is really great to be participating in this. I hope to get mine in the mail to Jeanette soon. Love the 2 you did -- they are both super.

now I can hardly wait to see how you "solve" the center of the paisley pin...it's so beautiful already!

Your little butterfly looks beautiful. I especially love how you did the green background. Nice job!

Love your butterflies, especially the button. The paisley is beautiful, can't wait to see how you finish it off.

LB, BB, sueun -- thanks for stopping by. All your kind words are such encouragement for a beginning beader. Appreciate it.

Lovely butterflies, thanks for letting us follow their metamorphose from idea to finished work. My insect is still an idea only, but will hopefully come to life in time for one of the quilts.

It is perfectly alright to flit back and forth between projects, and according to my experience helps with their completion. When I was in my knitting phase, I used to lose interest in a pullover as soon as I could see what it would look like. It always helped to start another one, and then return to the old project once I lost interest in the new one ...
