Fourth Freebie Friday Pattern 10-27-2017 Marjorie Cuff

It's that time again... Freebie Friday Pattern!

This time, I've picked a pattern that just seemed to evolve on it's own and isn't really based on a holiday or occasion... it's just something nice to wear. Of course, someday I would like to get around to changing the colors, but right now, I'd settle for seeing one of you come up with different colors and beading it up. Anyway, this bracelet is called "Marjorie" and it is just fun and light, nothing serious, just easy going.


Okay, here are the dirty details:::: It is 2-drop Odd Count Peyote, it uses 6 different colors of Delicas, it is a repeating pattern so you can make it as long or as short as you want. 

If you want the featured free pattern, you just have to do ONE thing:
Send me an email so that I can email the PDF to you... the comments form on my blog DOES NOT give me your email address... without your email address, I cannot send it. The contact form is located at the top of the page. Now, …

Anyway, here is the pattern!! I'm celebrating my 20th Anniversary this week and so I decided I wanted to share a fun pattern with you... it was inspired by olives in a martini glass. I don't know what it is about a martini glass with olives and alcohol... I've only ever had one in my life and it was terrible. I assume it was because it was made with cheap gin, but who knows. The idea of a martini evokes celebrating to me... I guess because it isn't something that would be had every day? I don'…

Monday Musings 10-2-2017 Huichol Beading

Image
In August I participated in my first bead-a-long with one of the FB beading groups. The main subject was Huichol Beading. The patterns presented were from a couple of different sources and one I found while on Pinterest. I had been interested in this style for quite a while, but hadn't done any beading in August because I wasn't in the mood. We had to say goodbye to one of our dogs.  She had been with us forever and has left a big hole in our hearts. Anyway, now is not the time, otherwise I'll just start crying and not finish this post.


Anyway, here is a pic of all of the ones I did over the last couple of days of August. One of the flowers is from Kat Adair. Notice I did one in size 11/0 Czech beads,  then did a couple in size 13/0 Czech Cut Beads and then 15/0 seed beads (mixed brands.)  The other was done using a couple of videos by BeadingByMiroslavo, I cannot find the specific videos anymore because Youtube removed all of the videos. The lady that translates the video…
