Not a lot to say today but I have made an "Orphan'. That's right I have NO SHIRT to match it! (not in my current wardrobe that is, I may have something in my winter stash but I am not getting that out now) This one may call out for something special! So here it is......
This is a pattern form the February/March issue of Beadwork. The artist's name is Callie Mitchell. I love the way it is made and her instructions were spot on! I hope to see more of her work but haven't been able to find her yet! It uses drops (I know I have a little obsession with them but they are so cute and sweet) and seeds (of course) and these gorgeous beads I found at Walmart quite a while ago. I had originally been looking for a creamy blend but haven't been able to match the pearls I have and drops I need then I was looking for something and happened to see the pattern and the beads at the same time. I so love when a plan comes together even if it wasn't the original plan! I also love the dual strand look! (Again that is Derek's finger not mine).
Still waiting for my beads from Nicole but I am sure I will love them!
