I now have a love hate relationship with wire and beads.
Back about a year and a half ago I was at the craft store, and thought it was suddenly a good idea to buy beads and make a bracelet and earrings. The earrings were a breeze, at the beads were super easy to string, but I've been putting off trying to figure out the clasps, with no success. I finally figured out (thanks to Google, and YouTube) the supplies I needed to finally complete it. I made a trip to the craft store again, and collected the three things, and have been looking at the stuff since this past weekend. I decided today that it had been long enough. I worked for 1 hour tonight trying to get the crimping beads on, and after giving myself a headache, I finally finished it. Here it is.
I am happy with the finished product, but needless to say, I will not be going into the jewelry making business. At least not for now.
I decided to finally collect all of Baby E's afghans in one place, and take a picture of them.
From bottom left corner, clockwise, here they are: pink brick stitch - made by my grandmother, a white one - made by my friend, another pink brick fuzzy monster that is kinda icky - made by me, a white Exquisite - made by me, a purple don't remember the pattern name - made by me, a yellow brick made by me, (in her lap) a peach brick - made by my mom, and last, a lavender can't remember the pattern - made by me. Think she has enough? Yeah, me neither!
