In the meantime:
I tried one of Carol Dean Sharpe's patterns when she had a fantastic sale going on. I haven't yet made it to the other patterns I purchased but I will get there! So for now, I have done 'Ohm'
After that, I joined a new beading group on Facebook (new to me!) Operation Tackle That Bead Stash, which challenges you each month with a project that you use only your stash items to complete! This is perfect for me since I buy waaay more beads than I use :) So, here is my April Stashbusting challenge:
My May & Color challenge Stashbuster:
And the Pastel Color challenge:
I also decided on a project from the new issue of Bead & Button, I have decided to call my version Galaxies as that's what they look like!
Then I finally made my way back to Jill Wiseman's Beautiful Beaded Ropes book and started with Dancing Waves:
Finally, I finished a project that I am very proud of personally. Designing and creating my very own Beaded Dice Set. It's a full set of 7 dice for Dungeons & Dragons!
And that's all for now in the beady world as I get back to the grindstone trying to finish Jill's book before Bead & Button show in Milwaukee in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS! In which, I will be taking one of Jill's classes! I'm so excited to meet her in person I can hardly wait!! Don't worry, there WILL be pictures of my adventure there. :)
