Hello & Happy Friday!! ☀️ How is everyone doing this week?!?! It has been a week full of beading and then some for me😉. Last week I didn’t get a chance to get the weekly blog up with it being Thanksgiving and getting ready for my special sales😃. So, today I will be touching base with a few things from last week including the new listings and some of the K~Max Klub updates and news!! The November kits have come to and end…but good news!!! You all will have one more chance to grab up those kits you missed-including any and all from July 2020-November 2020😃. I have been working on one WIP since the end of last week…so that’s where we’ll catch up with and begin today with….let’s get the beads rolling😉
First, let’s talk about the WIP I’ve been working on😃. I started this one just the day before thanksgiving(Wednesday). I started off with 5 rows and 240 beads…mostly background but there was already a hint of something starting!! By the end of Wednesday I had put in a total of 25 rows and 1,200 beads…now there was a lot showing but so far no one had guessed what I was making😁. Of course I didn’t do much beading on Thursday it being thanksgiving and spending time with family, but I did manage to sneak in another few sets and came back on last Friday with 40 rows and 1,920 beads…was trying to see if someone would finally guess what pattern I was working on but nobody guessed as of that point…even after giving the clue that ‘he’ was a ‘surfer’😁. I worked all throughout last Friday and finally by days end some one guessed that it was Squirt!! At that point I had finished the day with 60 rows and 2,880 beads!! I didn’t get to bead too much over the holiday weekend but by Monday of this week I kicked the day off with 75 rows and 3,600 beads. One eye was completely done and the other eye was just starting to peek out😃. I worked throughout Monday and ended up finishing at row 95 with 4,560 beads. I was not sure if I’d be able to do anymore that night because I had a card night with the family, but I did and came back with 100 rows and 4,800 beads for Tuesday morning…Squirt’s second eye was now almost done!! Also if you look closely at this point, you might be able to see his smile😉. I beaded all day pulling my rows of 5 at a time(240 beads) and finished Tuesday off at row 120 & 5,760 beads…then it was time to have my ‘BINGO’ night 🤩. Wednesday morning came and I started off with 125 rows and 6,000 beads…didn’t have much time the previous evening to work on him…lately it has been very busy for me and I don’t get too much time to bead in the evening hours…life seems to be getting in the way😉. By the end of Wednesday I had a total of 145 rows done and 6,960 beads…now the flippers could be seen!! I had stopped there to go do work on the house & try to build my lead back up in cards😃. Thursday morning finally came and I got to start my day off with 150 rows & 7,200 beads…it seems like squirt is peeking around the corner at me😁. By the evening hours later that day I reach 170 rows and 8,160 beads…(I forgot to post the picture😊). Now here we are and it is Friday…I am starting today off with 175 rows done and 8,400 beads-I have a feeling that today will be the day I finish Squirt…let’s see shall we?!?! 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 to share one of my new listings from last week😃. Since I wasn’t able to share a blog & show the listing last week I decided to put them in this weeks blog-in case you missed the posts of my Facebook page😉. This first one is the Kawaii inspired 5×7 Art ‘LUNA’ from Harry Potter!! I just love how she came out and is one of my favorite characters too-was especially interesting to get the shape of her glasses…but they came out wonderful!! If you are a big fan of Harry Potter or even of LUNA like me…this would be the perfect gift to give for that someone special for the holiday!! Here it is…Enjoy!!
How about we move on to some updates and news from my K~Max Klub before showing the other listing?!?! As of last week, the November bead-along is now complete and can be found on our Klub page or in the file of our group page. You can also find all of the previous bead-alongs to work on as well if you didn’t have time to in the past 😉. Unfortunately fir the month of December I will not be able to do a bead-along, just not enough time😊. I will try to see what I can come up with maybe after the new year!! We do have some members who have put up their photos of where they are at on their November bead-along as well as another member who posted her photo of the final 4×4 Easter Cross Art kit she had gotten from me a bit back😃. I am going to show their works off with you all-they are doing or have done such a great job and it make me happy to see the beautiful job they have done!! I really love seeing everyone posting pictures of my kits or bead-alongs that they have done!! It’s very inspiring and helps me to keep on creating😊. Here are the works being created or finished…
Now, it’s time to share the other new listing😃. This one is a bit different then what I would normally share with you all, but some of you might remember reading that I have a passion for crocheting blankets and might have even seen some of the ones I have gifted or listed in my shop!! This crocheted blanket I call’Fall Mixed Up Blanket’ and would make a wonderful handmade gift to give to that someone special during the holiday to keep them nice and warm!! Enjoy 😉!!
