Yesterday, I received my order to make the necklace I wrote about in a post last week. I was happy and starting stringing when after getting home from work when I realized something. I was stringing it wrong, and I only brought one 10 gram of Japanese seed beads. The instructions called for 17.5 grams of seed beads, so that means placing another order. I am going to order more of rectangle horn and Dalmatian jasper beads. I want to coordinate some orange color beads with the rectangle horn beads, and some black or silver beads with the Dalmatian jasper beads. I am going to have some jasper beads from the first string I ordered, I am thinking about a bracelet I just came up with an idea for the seed beads, I nice knitted wool T with seed beads around the sleeves, an half inch border of the beads. The creativity comes what to do with the leftover materials. I also waiting for another order to make an icy necklace
I received the September/October issue of Crochet Today. Of course it is only July, but details, details. I love the cover as the theme’s issue is work it chic and polished looks for 9 to 5 in addition to its annual Halloween section. This tailored blazer is a suit-inspired sweater to add to one’s work-wardrobe, and the positive is that it does not wrinkle. The blazer is crocheted in Red Heart Eco-Ways bamboo wool with the suggested retail price of $3.99 a skein and comes in ten colors.
It is my hope that I work on some my crafty projects this week and next. I have not made a necklace since I went on vacation which is over a month ago. I am due for a new one, also get my afghan and wrap projects going to finish my the fall. I am going to end this blog post, and it’s ciao for now.
