October BJP done!

Yea! I'm ahead this month! Woo hoo! Got the BJP done for October. First I put a border of milky white beads around the edge.

Then I asked DH his opinion...we agreed it need something I tried another row using beads & Swarovski crystals.

I liked it so finished it that way! And here it is:

That's all for this week...can't show anything else 'cuz I've been busy with Christmas gifts! And I wouldn't want to give away any hints! :)

Happy weekend, & Happy Halloween to those of you who Trick or Treat!

With aloha,

P.S. Ooops...looks like I uploaded that first image HUGE! And I have no idea how to delete it & replace it. Can't find a "cut" option! Oh, well! :)
P.P.S. Thanks Robin for teaching me how to fix the picture!!! :)

hallo, CC, ho alcune cose per te, ma la mia connessione è molto lenta e per ora non posso inviarti nulla.
esse sono notizie sul trapunto e sul needlecase. intanto ti dico che il needlecase è un piccolo cuscinetto ricamato a forma di caramella che veniva usato per avvolgere i pizzi e i ricami preziosi. in genere realizzato in lino e ricamato come un sampler. qui puoi vedere qualcosa sul mio blog a presto, matilda

Hi CC - have been having trouble accessing blogspot blogs so am just now getting a chance to see your October page. I love the energy of the piece as well as the colors. Like everybody else, I think the border is wonderful and the perfect finish. Thanks as well for the enthusiastic comments about my page.
