Yes this post is a 2 for post! I really need to remember when I say yes to check my calender first! LOL
Echo Creative Club Reveal!
I know you all have been here throughout the year as I have participated in Jeannie's amazing club. I can not believe there is only 2 months left in this Journey for me and I so wish it could go on forever. I have been so inspired by each and every bead or pendant she has sent. This is what she sent to me this month...
Oh she is such a little sneak because she made these just for me when we were discussing challenging her with colors. I love the blend of dark chocolate and mustard. I have to tell you this was more of a challenge than I thought it would be. I thought I had the colors to match...nope. I fixed that issue then I thought I had the perfect design.....you guessed it....Nope. Last week I scrapped the whole thing and if you work with seeds you know that is not generally something you want to do but it just didn't feel right. Then it hit me......Russian Spiral. This is my go to chain for alot of projects. I love the feel and the flow and I really like how fast I can whip it out. LOL
Here she is....
Now I do not as of yet have a name for her or a clasp that I am pleased with but I can not wait for that to show itself so that I can wear this with my NEW mustard colored shirt! Yep I had to run right out and get one to match. You knew I would!
Please check out all of our amazing club members creations and stop by and give a shout out to Jeannie!

Time 2 Stitch Hop
Christine of One Kiss Creation and Therese of Therese's Treasures challenged beaders to use 2 stitches this time around (I missed the first hop) St Petersburg Chain and Right Angle Weave (RAW)
I thought this would be fun and easy to participate in but boy it was a lot harder than I thought. Not the stitches just finding the time in the many (too many) commitments that I made in this month. However I did find a way to incorporate a few things and make this commitment.
I have not made a true St Petersburg chain before and boy was it hard to find a simple pattern for it. I finally did and I made Golden Treasure.....
Yes this was my ECC reveal from last month Go me! LOL It was a fun and rather easy stitch to learn. I liked the flow and the softness of the chain.
Now for those who know me should now I love me some RAW. It has so much versatility and although it does take time and alot of thread to CRAW (cubic) I do love it. Here is what I made last month with Diana's Art Jewelry Elements hop.
And this is what I am working on right now but it is basically a surprise so this is all you get.
Please enjoy hopping along!
