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: http://www.etsybeadembroideryguild.blogspot.com
