Time  is ticking , and I am running a bit behind schedule :) , hoping to make the deadline for the Etsy Beadweaver's November Challenge.  I have started a spiral rope for this challenge and am not sure what direction I am taking it , maybe a necklace or lariat,  if  things go right I will incorporate the petrified wood focal I have chosen.

I am pleased with the colors,  different browns and gold seed beads, 4mm firepolish amber colored glass, and  4-5mm dark chocolate brown cathedral glass beads. So far the rope reminds me of indian corn or maze, perfect for fall. Well atleast in my eyes :) I have done a few more inches than what is shown here , believe I measured the rope at 14" so far,  I definitely have a ways to go .

At the moment Smokey is overseeing all that I do , he tends to stay close when I am under the weather , so to speak, especially if food is involved:)     On another topic I have to mention how great the Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild is doing , now we have a blog , facebook page, and a group on yahoo,  and we have started voting for the very first bead fest  theme ;)  check out the blog here:
