Good Morning ☀️!! Welcome to another week of wonderful beading and creativity😉. Did you all have a wonderful week of beading or creativity of any kind?!?!…I did and I can’t wait to share it all with all of you😃. This week I got to finish up my Granddaughters special ‘Mermaid Scale’ Necklace and then start a new 5×7 Art this week. I was also able to list 2 of my most recent creations( a 5×7 Art & a 3×5 Art) along with some new patterns(. 5×7 kawaii & bracelet size kawaii) this week!! Little by little I have seen members from my K~Max Klub finishing up some of the bead alongs…so I’ll have updates there too!! In other news, I have had some customers/members who have purchased some of the new Kawaii Art pattern and have finished…id like to show you those too!! And if that’s not enough to share with you all…I have finished crocheting another blanket to gift and want to share with you the finished blanket😁. Then last but not least, I have the new kits that are available for August to share with you all😍. Let’s get started, shall we?!?!
To start today off, let me show you the updates on the WIP I started last week for my Granddaughter 😃. If you’ve been following along…I have been working on a ‘Mermaid Scale’ Necklace for her. Last week I managed to finish up the cab and start a herringbone rope in 4 bead around but I really was not liking the way it was turning out( I usually do 6 bead around )…so I had decided to tear it apart and begin anew with the 6 bead around herringbone rope. So that is where I started my Monday off…re working on the rope of the necklace and by a little past mid afternoon, I was able to finish it off completely!! Now I am sure it is either on its way or almost reaching her in California-maybe she’s already gotten it😉. I can’t wait to see/hear from her and how she likes her new ‘pretty’…now she has one of her own just like her mama, aunt, grandmother, and others have-beaded by me-but for herself😍. Here are the final working pictures…hoping to get some pictures of her wearing it soon😉.
Now before we move on to the other WIP for this week, I’d like to show you one of the New Listings! This was the listing fromTuesday…I finally had gotten the chance to take & Edit pictures for the new Batman 5×7 Kawaii Art!! Here he is…Enjoy😉
Now, how about we talk about the other WIP for this week!! I started this creation late Monday afternoon…the Kawaii Inspired Tigger 5×7 Art!! By Monday late afternoon I had 5 rows started and 230 beads put in and come Tuesday morning(being able to work a little more on it before going to bed) had 25 rows in and 1,150 beads…his ears are starting to take shape😃. I beaded through the day…pulling out rows of 5 and then beading them into the art…and got a total 45 rows completed & 2,070 beads!! By Wednesday morning, I had 50 rows and 2,300 beads in…I just love the way he is turning out so far!! I worked on him throughout the day and stopped at 70 rows & 3,220 beads…it was time to go and play bingo with the kids😉…I was hoping to maybe be able to do a few more rows before heading to bed that night and sure enough I got to do 10 more rows-making it 80 rows & 3,680 beads to kick off Thursday morning!! Just look at that cute face…😍. By the end of Thursday I had 100 rows in and 4,600 beads…it was so hard to design those stripes but I think I pulled them off…what do you think?!?! Now this morning, I am starting the day off with 115 rows and a little over 5K in beads!! He is such a cutie…let’s see how much I’ll 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!
Now on to another listing for the week…this one is from Wednesday 😉. It is of the Spring Flowers 3×5 Beadwoven Art-it was from a July beadalong I did with my K~Max Klub😃. I framed it and then listed it and it’s now in my shop…Enjoy😉
