Lots And Lots And Lots of BEADS!!

My mum gave me all of these really awesome beads the last time I was at her place. I can't wait to make something with them!
They are all from a woman who used to do macrame so they are quite large in size.

Four of these super cute owls are in amongst the mix.

Hopefully I will be able to think of some great projects for these. If you have any ideas please let me know! I haven't done a lot of beading in the past and I am not sure I am really up for macrame....
The beautiful window pane quilt in the background was made by my mum.

I love beads! I have quite a few as well and can never think of what to use them for...I think a beaded picture would be really neat with an old picture frame like the ones used for the necklace holder. Tight knotted strings with beads run between the top and bottom like a beaded door cover... who knows.

That might be a neat idea. So far I haven't come up with anything special to do with these.
Maybe an oversize necklace??
