CONGRATULATIONS #18... KATHY! You are the winner.
I have been so excited to share this
latest creative endeavor, which is quickly
turning into a bit of an obsession.
A little over a month ago, fellow artist,
Lyric Kinard, who was voted 2011
Quilt Teacher of the Year, released a
Brand NEW! instructional DVD...
Bead It Like You Mean It!
I was very enthusiastic to participate in
Lyric's blog-roll promotion because I
have long admired beautiful beading
details on fabric, but had never tried
beading anything myself. So, I was
interested and eager to have an
opportunity to explore this medium.
I began by watching the entire DVD
and making a list of supplies I needed.
Once I had everything gathered, I
watched the DVD again, working
along side Lyric on my piece.
I am really proud of the beaded Blue
Jay pin I made. In fact, I am planning
to wear my creation at the upcoming
International Quilt Festival in Houston,
to show off my new skill.
I can not say enough good things about
this DVD. There is no question in my
mind why Lyric received an award for
teaching. Her instructions are thorough,
clear, concise, and easy to follow. Being
a complete novice, I so appreciated the
steady, yet relaxed way she presented
the various methods for adding beads
to dress up any project.
You can purchase your copy... here,

both, and if you win, give one away as
a gift. It would be a PERFECT stocking
stuffer. I know this will be on Christmas
So, leave a comment by this Friday,
