Happy New Year my dear friends and followers (if any of you still follow after the forced hiatus I took). First I will give all of you that just like the eye candy a picture of my last set of 2010.
This was a great pattern from the December Bead and Button Magazine. I loved it so much I did a variation of the stitch for the bracelet. As you can see I did use czech seed beads in a permanent finish and it gives it the look of spun silver.
For those of you who will read further I will give you a few options for what could come in the next few posts.
1. The reason I had to take my long hiatus including the following,
a. Derek's strep throat and following surgery (he is so much better now)
b. The fun development of panic attacks (WTF really?)
2. Two spectacular pattern reviews that includes,
a. Why I have a love hate relationship with my hubby's vacuum. (Yes ladies he is the one who vacuums!)
b. Why one of these pieces may not make it to my friend until summer.
c. Why you can never have enough rivolis!
d. And all of the fun stuff in between.
3. A tipsy beading post gone totally wrong including,
a. Why you should never plan a tipsy beading post.
b. Why it is always best to go with the middle of what you are looking at.
c. Why I couldn't continue the mimosa tradition (Really isn't the Rose Parade supposed to be on New Year's?)
So what is your vote?
Hugs and Blessings
