I had a wonderful time with my family and some good food.  

I’m thinking this shouldn’t just be a ‘bead’ blog, so I’m changing things up.  As soon as I come up with something to talk about.

I have completed the “How to” project!  I think I did well.  I even figured out how to end one piece of string and start another one mid-way thru the project myself.   The instructions were not very clear in my opinion.

Fini!

Well I’ve started my “learning how to” project.  A simple diagonal striped square using the Right Angle Weave.

My 1st project in process

I wouldn’t say that it’s harder then I thought it would be, but I do think it is fun.  I love seeing the project come to life.  It really makes me want to get into other stuff, however I know from experience that I shouldn’t jump in the deep end. Maybe I will take a picture of my second ever cross stitch project I did when my Mom gets it out to hang at Christmas.  I cringe every time I see it, from the many mistakes I know are there.   Knowledge comes from experience.

As Abby was watching me work she said “Wow, you are making lots of caterpillars.”

The beads have arrived!

WooHoo the beads have arrived!  They were probably here Saturday, however we didn’t check the mail this weekend.  I just need to get an organizer and fishing line.  I’ll let you know how it goes… 🙂

An opening…

I’m not sure where I am going with this.  A few days ago I was visiting a friends blog and stumbled upon a beading web site.  I’m thinking this blog will be my sanity as I delve into the interesting world of faceted bead art.  I’ve never thought about beads before because making jewelry doesn’t interest me.  I have done stained glass so when I saw the web site it intrigued me.  I am currently waiting for beads to arrive in the mail.

But I’m also a mother, so this blog will contain my children also…My children
