Introducing myself

I'm Carol, in Ohio, a total novice at beading. I've put beads into my embroidery in the past but I've never designed my own or been creative.

But this year, I decided it was time to learn something new, break out of my "basic" box. So here I am, here and in a quilting guild! Every five minutes I ask myself "What HAVE You done, girl?"!

I want to learn beading so I can use it in my embroidery *and* in crazy quilting. So my 2020 "journal" will consist of 5.5 x 5.5" quilt blocks which I will use as sampler pages for new stitches I have learned.

Anyway, my blog for my stitchery (and my beading, I hope) is at

Where are you in Ohio? I live in Columbus & teach bead embroidery here. Private me at as I sometimes come up to Akron to visit a friend & teach her doll group

Welcome, Carol! I know the feeling "What HAVE you done, girl?" and I bet a lot of our nearly 300 members have had that thought as well.... I love beading with thread embroidery, especially CQ... so I look forward to seeing where you go with this! Robin A.

Welcome to BJP, Carol. I'm looking forward to seeing your work. I am seriously sewing impaired on a machine but love bead embroidery. Glad to have you with us.

It looks like you're off to a good start. And the embroidery on your blog is seriously amazing!
