Wow!! It’s Friday already?!?! Happy Friday ☀️!! This week went by really quickly…of course it was only a 4 day week with the past weekend being a 4 day long weekend for me😁. I haven’t had one of those in like FOREVER!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and a very inspiring week!! This week I got to start a WIP, then finish it!! Then…start a brand new one this morning!! For this week I have one new listing, some updates on Klub news and last but not least, the new available kits for September 😃. I am ready to get the beads rolling today and show you all this weeks news…shall we get started?!?!
Let’s begin with the WIP I started on Tuesday of this week😉. As you all know, Tuesday I came back from a 4 day weekend-I really needed it-and finished last week’s WIP of Sally…will be the new listing for this week😉. So Tuesday morning I started off with something new…the sample for September’s peyote bracelet in a box kit!! I kicked the day off with 10 rows and 180 beads…this bracelet is a fun one and would make a wonderful gift for Christmas for someone or for yourself😉. I worked along for most of the day, pulling my rows( for this bracelet I pulled 10 rows at a time-180 beads each 10 rows) and managed to get to row 40 and 720 beads😃. By Wednesday morning, I kicked the day off with 50 rows and 900 beads(did 10 rows before going to bed the night before)and kept pulling my rows of ten throughout the day-reaching the halfway mark by the end of the day at 90 rows & 1,620 beads!! I know this pattern repeats itself, but there are slight differences in it…I had to be careful and watch the beads I use because some of the colors are really close in color😉. I have to say, this design is so NOT my normal-clean lines-but I like it a lot!! What do you all think of it?!?! Maybe I should start to design and work on some more ‘other’ styles of design😉. Thursday morning came around and I found myself kicking the day off with 110 rows & 1,980 beads(with another 20 rows accomplished before going to bed the night before). I kept pulling out more rows of 10 and before I knew it…I finished the design!! Now to get pics of the final bracelet and get it up for a new listing…that will probably have to wait to next week though😉. Time to start something new for today(Friday) but first here are some of my working photos of the September sample bracelet 😃
We have now arrived to today-Friday…and I am kicking off today with a new WIP!! I have decided to start the September 5×7 Art Kit sample😃. So today I kick off with 5 rows done and 230 beads. I will keep working on this through out the day and let’s see how far I can get on it 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 to show you all the new listing for this week!!!! Any guesses?!?! If have been following along…and you guessed Sally…you are right!!! This weeks new listing is the Kawaii inspired Sally 5×7 Beadwoven Art. I got to finish her over the Labor Day weekend then showed you the final working picture of her on Tuesday. It took ma a day or two to get everything ready for the listing, but she’s now ready to be shown off and ready to be hung or displayed on your favorite wall/shelf😃. Here she is… Enjoy 😉!!
Moving along now to some K~Max Klub news!! Just like I promised last week, I am going to be putting up a post in the Klub once a week that will allow you all to comment and post about the projects/bead alongs you are working on to show them off and inspire us all!! If you wanted to post an update before but couldn’t figure out how…this should help now😉. This week I posted a post for you all to do that and I see that Karen has updated us on a pattern for a large tapestry she got off of my shop!! She is doing such a wonderful job on it that I wanted to show/inspire all of you with her progress…but before I do that, let me tell you I am working on a fun and bright pattern for September’s bead-along and I should have it ready by next week for you all😉. So keep checking in for that update and if you have updates for previous bead-alongs…don’t be afraid to post them and inspire us all!!🌸. Now, let me show you Karen’s work😃
