A Friend's New Book





Recently I purchased a copy of Nancy Eha's newest beading book entitled "BEAD CREATIVE LIKE CRAZY." If you love beading and you love crazy quilts...this is the book for you! It's filled with gorgeous photographs of Nancy's crazy quilt beaded designs along with great instructions. Just makes you want to get out the beads and get started on a project.!

Nancy and I are friends. And, she is dear. We became friends on September 11, 2001. You can read "our story" in my post archives....look back on Thursday, 9-11-08 under the title "Remembering 9-11." It's a really wonderful story of how a bunch of beaders handled a really traumatic day in our nation's history. Nancy and I have corresponded ever since, meeting once in a great while at the Houston Quilt Show. Also in that particular post, you can see some work that we have exchanged as we learned we were each featured in the book "1000 Artist Trading Cards" by Patricia Bolton.

It's so nice to see friends do well and this new book of Nancy's is a treasure. I hope you will go to her website...www.beadcreative.com...and take a look. She would be happy to have you inquire about it and I know she would get a kick out of hearing that you saw it on my blog. So, go...look...enjoy. I promise you'll want to start stitching beads on your crazy quilts immediately! Take care. Pat

PS. Yes, once again, my photos did not show up in the correct order......naturally, the front of the book should have been first....well...best view last, I suppose.

Oh, thank you! I love beading, I've only done some beading with my tatting or to make jewelry, but I want to learn SRE and CQ so badly! I think I'd really enjoy making things just so I have something to put my tatted bits on! :)

Nooooo! I don't want another way to use beads. No quilting! No. Must resist. *grin*

Ooooh, I'll have to get this one!!! I've known Nancy for quite a long time too... She's a dear heart! Thanks for promoting her book...

By the way, if you want, I can coach you through how to place your pictures in your post. It's not so difficult, really, but you gotta know a couple of tricks. We could do it on the phone....

Glad you posted Nancy's book on your blog - you took great pictures and when Robin teaches you I'll get you to teach me.

Hi Pat
What a beautiful book! I saw your comment on my romatic home and thought I'd stop by and say hello since I am a quilter too. To get the photos in the right order you have to load them backwards. The one that will appear last has to be uploaded first. I am always getting them mixed up too!

What a beautiful book... I just love all the wonderful detail.

I'll be here if you need a little assistance with pesky blogger. It really is easy to rearrange your pictures... I could walk you through it in about 5 minutes on the phone. Cheers, Robin A.
