Good Morning & Happy Friday!! ☀️ How is everyone doing this week?!?! I’ve been having a great week…got to do beading-finish the WIP sample of August’s Lotus bracelet kit & start the WIP of August’s sample of a hanging seasons 5×7 Art Kit!! Then I got to do one ‘normal’ fun activity I love to do outside the house-play BINGO on Wednesday!! I also was able to finish getting final photos and put up 2 New Listings this week as well as finish crocheting another blanket for a friend😉. I do have some new updates from my K~Max Klub as well as some other news from my members/customers😃. There’s about a week left to get August’s kits-I’ll have that info for you all as well too!! And to top the week off…it’s my 21 Year Anniversary with my husband and it falls on the 21st…seems to mean a lot more💕😍🥰. Well, what do you say…should we go ahead and get the day started?!?!
Let’s begin with a look back from last Friday, where you all last saw the WIP sample bracelet being worked on…the last working photo I had put up was of row 90 with 1,620 beads put in and the white lotus flower was completely done!! If you looked real close…you could even see a hint of the. Lack lotus flower starting😉. Over the past weekend I was able to put in 40 rows and be able to start Monday off with 130 rows done and 2,340 beads…about halfway through with the black lotus flower now…not too much more to go-I worked through the day and was even able to finish this very simple yet very elegant bracelet with 172 rows and 3,096 beads!! Only thing left that had been left to finish up was to slide the bar down over the row of square stitch beads, add on the rest of the rest of the findings and take final phots to list it😁. Here are the last few working photos to show you😃
Before moving on to the next WIP for this week, let’s take a look at one of the New Listings…this one I listed on Tuesday😉. Any guesses as to what it could be?!?! If you guessed the ‘Sample Lotus Bracelet from August 2020’ bracelet kit…you got it!! This bracelet was made only using 3 colors… but yet it is so elegant and beautiful. Remember, this is the sample and is already made to buy and wear right away…but you also have the option to buy the kit and make your own😉. Here it is…Enjoy😁.
Now, on to the next WIP for this week😉. I don’t know what happened on Tuesday, I started the Changing Seasons Art Kit sample but mothing was posted the whole day about it🤔. Any how, I started Wednesday off with 35 rows done and 1,610 beads…I beaded for most of the day until it was time to do my fun ‘normal’ activity of the week…BINGO😃. I stopped at row 55 with 2,530 beads right at the divider to move on to Summer. I didn’t end up winning at Bingo that night but I did win at being able to put more rows into the changing seasons tree…so I got to start Thursday off with 65 rows and 2,990 beads😉. I beaded throughout the day hoping to finish the summer section, but I didn’t quite make it…ended up stopping at row 85 with 3,910 beads…maybe I’d have time to do more before going to bed?!?! I have to say at this point, I am so LOVING the way it is turning out and between the peacock and this pattern, it might be a strong leader for my favorite of all times!! Onto today, Friday…I did manage to do about another 20 rows the night before, so I’ll be kicking today off with 105 rows and 4,830 beads and moving on to the Fall section of the tree😍. Let’s see how much 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!
Time for another listing!! This was Thursday’s New Listing!! I finished him up last week but needed to get him framed and photographed…the Santa Beadwoven Art!! Here he is…ready to bring some Christmas cheer for the upcoming holidays by hanging him up or putting him on your favorite ‘shelf’😄 Enjoy!!
On to some updates from my K~Max Klub!! The August bead-along is still going on of the 4×4 Santa…remember, this bead-along is only for this group😉. I hope you all are having fun with this bead-along as well as any of the others from past months and I hope to see some working photos of how they are progressing with any of the bead-alongs…speaking of such, Jessica Lane has been posting her working photos this week of the Santa Bead-along!! I see that she has made a few color changes…they look awesome and it turned out great!! Just take a look at how hers progressed!!
Next up, some other news!! During last weekend I did bead but I mostly crocheted!! I did so much crocheting that I finished the 2/3 blankets that I am doing for a friend’s 3 little ones😉. This is the second one completely done and in a new stitch I learned-I must say it turned out wonderful and I think the person receiving it will be wowed!! Now it’s time to do the 3rd one to send all of them out soon😉. Another thing I’d like to share with you all is some awesome posts from some ladies who bought patters/kits from me recently and posted about them!! It makes me feel so inspired and filled with joy at seeing my patterns and kits come to fruition…Thank you ladies for sharing with all of us your wonderful creations from my patterns and kits!! Here are the pictures of the blanket and posts😍💕🥰
