Beading Class!

See what I did?
What fun!

Of course, the dude said, "You need a class to show you how to string beads?" Harumph. Next week we make earrings; then we do pearl stringing; then spiral rope stitch; ending with a wire wrapped donut. Mmmm ...donut. This is going to be good!

The colors aren't quite true in this scan. The purplish beads are definitely all pink. The rosette is more chartreuse, definitely lighter. And the funnel shaped beads are closer in color to the rosette.

The woman I sat next to totally independently chose the rosette as her focal piece too, only hers was an icier blue color. Do you think we'll be friends?

Bee-u-tiful! Love the colors. It definitely bodes well that you both chose the rosette for your focal piece.

You and Doodleblog Melissa are killing me with the beading classes! I flip through the beading magazines in the bookstore, I wander around the Garden of Beadin' but so far I have avoided this, but if you two keep posting pics I'm going to be sucked into the beading vortex!

Very pretty! I'm resisting the call of beading - I just can't get into another hobby, but oh! I just love checking out the bead selection in craft stores.

Here's the thing about "another hobby..." This one is so fast! I did that in two hours. It would be one thing to add knitting sweaters onto the "hobby list" with cross stitch (which, let's face it, takes forever). Beading can be fast. Not terribly cheap, but not bags of cash either.

I also find it easier to focus on one project at a time with the "extraneous" hobbies than I do with cross stitch. Still, I admire your will power, X2 and Melissa.

Pretty, pretty.

I promise pictures of my beading as soon as I get enough accomplished to make it recognizable. I've got large wrists...LOL

Wow, great job! I like the colors that you chose. Can you drop me a line re: Sunday's excursion? Thanks!

Love the colors you chose for this project! Very E&E&F.
