Hello…& Good Morning!!☀️. How was everyone’s week?!?! For me, this week was a little more relaxed but still very creative week!! All in all…I finished 2 WIP’s and have started another for this week…one of those WIP’s is even the New listing for this week😁. I also have a quick update for my K~Max Klub and one other news to share with you all, along with the information on the kits for this month’s kits 😉. How about we just get started?!?!
Last week, if you were following along with me, you’ll remember that I was working on a kawaii inspired Tigger 5×7 Art WIP…well over the past weekend I got to work quite a bit on this bouncy cute fella, so Monday morning I kicked off the day with 175 rows done and 8,050 beads!! Only 20 more rows to put on at that point, so I worked throughout the morning and into early afternoon…and I FINISHED him!! With a total of 195 rows and 8,970 beads…this fella is ready to be framed and photographed😉. By Tuesday morning I had him all set in his frame and photographed and he is now listed on my site!! Now there are 3 ways to get this bouncy & cute fella-1) to get this already done and framed one, 2) you can grab the pattern at my site and make him yourself😉 or 3) can grab the bracelet pattern version and make it😁. For now…here are the final working pictures that I have😉!
Next up, another WIP…this one was started Tuesday morning…kicking off with 5 rows & 190 beads. This one is a seasonal 4×4 Art…it is a current bead-along I just started today with my K~Max Klub Members😉. By the end of Tuesday I got to row 45 with 1,710 beads…there’s the show of the Santa Hat!! Later that evening, I ended up having a little extra time to put in on it …did 30 rows!! So, Wednesday morning I started the day off with 75 rows & 2,850 beads…there’s the face and the start of the mustache😃. Throughout Wednesday I continued to work-thinking I’d finish him, but not quite!! I ended up stopping at row 105 with 3,990 beads. Thursday morning I worked on him some more and finished him mid-morning with a total of 115 rows and 4,370 beads…but I decided I wanted to add ‘a little’ something more to the top and bottom to make him a little more unique😉. By mid-day, I had him completely done except to get him framed and photographed…here are some of my working photos for now😉
Before moving on to the last WIP of this week, let’s look at the new listing😃. Can you guess what’ll be?!?! Yup!!…the new 5×7 Tigger Beadwoven Art that I finished this week!! He is framed and ready to be hung up or even put on a stand …Enjoy😉!!
Now, it’s time to talk about the new WIP that I am currently working on😃. This was started on Thursday afternoon…it is the sample bracelet from the August peyote bracelet in a box kit! The simple yet elegant Lotus flowers…only 3 colors in this yet so beautiful!! I started off with 10 rows and 180 beads…these end bars that I use are very easy to use and make the bracelet more easy to adjust for different size wrists!! All you have to do is add a row of square stitch beads to the ‘UP’ row at each end and then slide the bar down over those beads just added😉. By the end of Thursday, I had 30 rows done with 540 beads…was thinking to do more later on in the evening if I had gotten the time…well, I ended up having the time and so today I am kicking off the day with 50 rows & 900 beads!! One flower is a little past halfway done…let’s see how many rows I can get done today😃. REMEMBER, that you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos!
Next up, a quick update on the K~Max Klub News! The Bead-along for August has been uploaded into our Klub page as of Tuesday!! I hope you all enjoy working on the seasonal art 4×4 🎅!! Please…post working pictures and final pictures…let everyone see and be inspired by all of us😉. Remember the colors that I have put are suggestions and you can adjust them as you see fit too…let’s have some ‘pre-Christmas’ fun with this bead-along😃
Before I move on to the kits, let me share some other news with you all! Recently, one of my members who had gotten one of my past kits decided it was time to conquer her fear with all the colors that went with this kit(it was the Peacock bracelet kit made and designed back in 2019) and work on it!! She finished it and it came out lovely!! She should be proud of herself for completing it and getting over the fear of being intimidated by ‘so many’ colors💕. Here is a little blurb and a picture she posted in a group😃. Great job Karen!!
It’s time to introduce you all to the Patterns/Kits for AUGUST!! I just can’t believe how wonderfully these turned out😃. Are you all ready for some beautiful imagery/nature patterns?!?! I have to say…these are just wow!! I love the lotus flowers, but I have to say I think the change of seasons pattern just might be my all time favorite design I have created…so much detail in a little 5×7 Art!! I will be doing a Peyote Bracelet in a Box Kit with a new pattern( Lotus flowers in single drop peyote) for August and I have decided to do another 5×7 Art in a Bag Kit for August!! This month’s 5×7 Art pattern is a pattern in 2 drop peyote!! Let me go ahead and tell you a little bit more about each individual kit with the important dates for availability 😃.
