http://www.beadjournalproject.com/ is starting it's 4th year. I've been in it from the beginning and really have enjoyed it.
This year I decided to do Crazy Quilt backgrounds after seeing the lovely pieces done by others in past years. January means snow to me, so the piecing is in all whites. The lace and tatting are mostly vintage from my collection. I used stitching on the seam lines then added beads to accent everything.
