Beading Lovers Unite!

Wow, I'm in beading glory at the moment...just looking at all of the gorgeous photos in Christen Brown's newest book: Beaded Embroidery Stitching



Tons of eye candy for me to enjoy...and several Gallery items or projects that are so inspiring I just want to get up and bead something...but can't put the book down long enough!
The beaded bracelets are especially catching my attention. But, I also want to do one of the beaded tassels. Decisions, decisions! All of the general and project instructions are clearly written with great how-to photos...even a novice bead enthusiast would love this book!
So, my best advice is to RUN not walk to the nearest quilt shop for this book. Or, just sit at order online at C&T Publications or on Amazon...don't wait!  Congrats Christen on another super book..this one is sure to be a favorite! I know it will be on my bookshelves for years to come!

To celebrate the launch of Christen's wonderful book...some stitching pals are having a Beaded Embroidery Stitching Blog Tour and Give-Away. If you leave a comment to my post about the book (see below), you could win a free E-book download of Christen's wonderful book!

Same goes for the other bloggers...so you can click on each link below...and leave a comment. That will increase your chances to win the E-book download!. I'll draw a name from those leaving me comments tomorrow afternoon and post the winner on the blog!

Kathy - I have been loving including beads on my crazy quilt blocks, but I have never learned any specific stitches or patterns for doing so. This book looks like just what I need! Thanks for sharing.
