I am a newbie this year too and super excited! I have found and follow a few participants from last year and I decided to take the plunge and join in this time. I have been beading for over 5 years but have never really done bead embroidery. I am looking forward to expanding my skill set and I have a few ideas in mind for what I want to do. Can't wait to get started and to see all the cool new journals this year!
