Hello & Good Morning 🌞!! Happy Friday!! How was everyone’s week?!?! This week has been very creative & inspiring for me😃… have been seeing some new updates from my K~Max Klub members and my followers-which is exciting to see and very inspiring!! This week I finished the Tie-dye bead along bracelet sample and even got to start another WIP (Mulan 5×7 Art)!! I also managed to get the final touches and pictures done of the Christmas Flower Art and got that listed this week as well. For those of you who want to grab this months kits…there are only a few days left(3) in which to do so😉. I will have that information for you all too!! I’m excited to get this day started…let’s get a roll on with this weeks updates 😉
Let’s begin with the Tie-Dye WIP bead-along sample bracelet 😃. On last Friday, I left you all at row 50 with 900 beads…well after having family over the weekend, I didn’t get to bead much but I did kick Monday off with 60 rows done and 1,080 beads😁. I pulled my rows and beaded throughout the day and ended up finishing Monday with 100 rows and 1,800 beads…at that point, you could see the ‘swirl’ of the tie dye! Tuesday morning came and I started the day off with 110 rows & 1,980 beads…just look at how the swirl looks at this point!! I managed to get another 40 rows done for Tuesday…ending the day at 150 rows & 2,700 beads…not too much more to go at this point😃. Wednesday morning I came back ready & excited to finish the rest of it-all 22 rows that were left-finishing up at 172 rows & 3,096 beads!! I just love how this came out-one can never be too old to like & enjoy tie-dye😉!! Only thing left is to do the final touches and to take final pictures to get it up and listed in my shop😉..but for now, here are some of the final working pictures!!
Now, let’s take a look at the new listing for this week!! Over the past weekend, I was able to add the final touches as well as pictures of the ‘Christmas Flowers Beadwoven 5×7 Wall Art’ sample from this months kit😃. I just love how the bead work looks on that type of canvas-it gives it a special touch😉. Here it is…don’t forget-you can buy this one or grab the kit to make your own!!
Next up…the new WIP I got to start Wednesday afternoon 😃. I started off with 5 rows and 240 beads and already something could be seen!! By the end of Wednesday evening I had 20 rows and 960 beads put into the art…looking ahead I could see that in the next set of rows coming up, the hair/head would be starting to come through!! Thursday morning I came back with 35 rows done and 1,680 beads…15 more rows I was able to do Wednesday night before heading to bed!! And yep!! There is the top of her hair/head!! I beaded through the day and ended up adding another 20 rows on to the 35 rows done!! Now I am up to 55 rows & 2,640 beads!! Wow!! I still get amazed at the bead counts on these Art works I do every single time☺️ I wonder how much I will be able to get done for today(Friday) …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!
K~Max Klub News Update time!! I’m so excited!! This week I have had 2 members posting updates on patterns they got from me or from this month’s bead-along!! Yay🎉💕. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me!! I will be showing their work here…Karen & Jessica…in case anyone(only members who belong to the Klub) missed getting the bead along, the pattern is in the Klub files section and can be saved/downloaded or printed😉.
