these are the PIF's that i made and sent out to judy mary phyllis and aryd'ell in that order~
for some reason on aryd'ells green pen the beads look wonky near the goddess images neck~aryd'ell assured me they are not and it must be the way the camera picked it up....hmmmm.... once i got the hang of reading a tubular peyote pattern kind of like counted cross stitch but different-VBG-it got easier~the nice thing is that mary's arrived in australia on valentines day~the pattern called for a 'bic stick' pen but you can't get the cap on once its beaded~in the future i will look for a different type of pen~doing the PIF thing was nice it gave me a good feeling inside~

Tammy... these are beautiful! I've been meaning to try my hand at one of these, but have yet to get around to it. I really like the goddess pattern.

I still owe you a PIF as well. I know what I'm sending, but I don't have the package ready yet. It'll take a bit longer, but know that you will get something sooner or later :-)

I love mine- it goes everywhere with me!
Once you get the hang or feel of these, Tammy, you will find you can do them on 'regular' pens with flat middles, most of which can use refills, and are retractable!
Woo-hoo for staying with this project. I know it was giving you fits, at first!

These are so cute - looks like they were alot of work. How in the world did you control all of that "bead placement????"
