Good Morning & Welcome to another Friday Blog Post!! 🌞. It’s another great day today!! I have been enjoying the cooler weather that has been coming through…but could do without the humidity 😁. How is the weather like for everyone else?!?! It’s been a pretty productive week for me this far…got to finish the 5×7 WIP sample and start a New WIP, got 2 new listing put up this week and some updates for my K~Max Klub group!! I also received some other news and will share that too😉. Last but not least, I will have the information on the available kits for you all too!! I am excited to get this day started and my new WIP…let’s go!!!!
Last week, on Friday, I left you all on the sample 5×7 Poinsettias WIP at row 25 & 1,150 beads…Well, over the past weekend, I was able to bead quite a bit and started Monday morning off with 50 rows and 2,300 beads!! One flower is now done and the second flower is now in sight😉. I worked through Monday, pulling my 5 rows at a time (that’s 230 beads every 5 rows!!) and by the end of the day, I got to 70 rows done and 3,220 beads and about 1/2 way through the second flower😃. Moving on to Tuesday morning, I started the day off with 85 rows and 3,910 beads put in!!!…was able to work on it the night before, before going to bed😉 and now the second flower is almost complete. By the end of Tuesday, I had added another 20 rows-making it 105 with 4,830 beads…middle flower is almost completed and the corner of the 3rd flower is now peeking out😃. The 5×7 Art is now a little over 1/2 way complete!! Now, we move on to Wednesday morning…did some rows the night before so I kicked of the day with 120 rows, 5,520 beads, and the 2nd flower completely done and a few petals of the 3rd flower forming!! What do you all think so far?!?!…Is it looking ‘real-ish’?! By the end of Wednesday, the 3rd flower is half way done and now had 140 rows & 6,440 beads. I am just loving how real it is looking with all those red tones-giving it shadows/depth!! Now, we com upon Thursday morning…kicked off with 155 rows & 7,130 beads!! Wow!!…it always amazes me-the bead count, especially for a small tapestry of this size 😁. It’s now almost 3/4 of the way from being completely done and still have so many more to go…😃 Then the evening hours came along and it was time to have family time, I had 175 rows and 8,050 beads put in. And here we are now, Friday morning & GUESS WHAT?!?! I was able to finish the design last night!! I have 195 rows done and the final working picture…the final pictures to do a listing will have to wait for now…it is time to get a new WIP started for the day!! Here are some of the wo king photos from the week!!
