First Timer!

Hi, I'm Robbie from cold, snowy Michigan! This is my first year with the BJP and I'm really excited. I've started on my January journal and will finish up after we arrive in Florida the 1st of the new year! I'm also showing the progress of my work on my own blog. I was so inspired with pictures of the past year or two from the BJP and I'm looking forward to seeing and reading about this years work! oops..forgot to add....I'm going to be creating a journal size (8 1/1" x 11") piece for the BJP and my theme is Art of Nature. I'm also going to include some form of 'doodling/zentangling' in my free motion quilting and/or in my beading. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Hi, Robbie. This is Susan K., also from Michigan, in Ann Arbor. Where do you live? Welcome to the BJP! The link to your blog doesn't appear to be working, can you check it, because I'd love to see the progress you're making.

Welcome, Robbie!!!! Ooooh, I love the idea of including some form of zentangle in your work!!! You must be primarily a quilter, right??? Did you ever participate in the Quilt Journal Project? I look forward to seeing your first BJP piece!!! Robin A.

Hi Robbie (and Susan K.) - I'm also from Michigan (Ann Arbor) and this is my first year on the project, too. I'll be posting on

I just love the idea of doodling or zentangling with beads as well and will look forward to seeing what you come up with! I have a feeling that I'll do a lot of improvisational beading. I do a lot of drawing and usually have things planned out in advance, so I look forward to a less planned approach here. Should be fun!
