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!
