I love working new, elaborate patterns.
I love creating new designs.
But sometimes it's just nice to go back to a familiar, favourite stitch.
We ended up spending the night and part of today at my in-laws due to a power outage, so I just grabbed a few beads in the semi-darkness at home.
Twisted herringbone is just so soothing to me!

Many on the go

I don't know about you, but I tend to have a few projects on the go at the same time. Sometimes this actually really bugs me! Right now for example I got a good way into my second go at a GoodQuillHunting ( pattern with twin beads and realized the beads that came in the mail were the wrong size...
I really love working with these beads, they are a lot of fun, not to mention I wish I had the talent Christina has in coming up with such patterns!
Later, as I'm half-way into another of her patterns (I'm also good at buying patterns and taking a while to use them!) I realize I need to order smaller needles...
I have not worked in 15s much in a while. Of course now I'm loving it again!
So I guess I'll be starting something else later!

I really am enjoying working with Preciosa twin beads in this Good Quill Hunting pattern.
It's pure joy working with these new beads!
Yes, I'm making it for myself in orange-who is shocked? 😄

So,as it's still snowing here, I've decided to have a sale pretending that it is spring!
When you check out of my shop simply use the coupon code SPRING to receive 20% off!
Here's to spring actually showing it's beautiful face!

Back in the game

As you can see having a baby took me away from a lot of things for quite a while.
We seem to be in a bit of a groove now, and I'm getting back to my beading and all that that entails.

My newest is a new chevron design. It was a lot of fun to create and watch come to life.
I'm working on a second version of it right now!

Next: I'm going to play with some Preciosa twin seed beads! Have you used these yet? Or any of their seed beads? I have an idea swirling in my head for them and we will see what comes of it!

Get Rid of Her!

EDITED she has all her money! Yay :) Thanks to those who helped!
 I'm doing another jewelry for missions deal ;)
I have a friend who is heading to Ireland to be a part of YWAM (youth with a mission) and we are helping her to raise the money that she needs for this!
I love being a part of this!
So, between now and the end of the month all the money from every sale is going to help her to meet this goal.
We are doing a night where my items will be available Tuesday after next you who are local. If you are not, anything you purchase from my shop will go straight to this need!

 Just to tempt, here are a few new piecs:
