Freeform Peyote Challenge Choose Your Own Adventure


Hi Y'all,

This is going to be a short and sweet post.  I did not get my piece finished to be honest I got the crud after coming back home from my beading retreat with my Beading Fairies, so I have really not been up to doing much of anything at all.

Karen Williams of Baublicious blog and Mandy Ainsworth Bead Circle teamed up to have a freeform peyote challenge and I said what the heck why not I have never done freeform and have been wanting to give it a try.  Well let me tell you it was not that easy for this OCD personality to accomplish, but I pushed through it and I completed one for another challenge here is the picture of that one. 


And here is the picture of the one for this challenge a work in progress.


I am not going to say that when I finish this I will post a picture, because to be honest it may never get finished, but then it just might, I am not sure at this point.

Please go by and check out what everyone else has made or is making for this challenge.  I will get around to everyone later.



Happy beading Y'all,
Therese

  9. I love the bracelet you finished for the other challenge and the one for this challenge is coming along beautifully! I am right there with you in trying to overcome the powerful pull of OCDness!! I think you're showing that it is a battle that CAN be won and with beautiful results to show for the effort.

  10. I'm so glad you pushed through, Therese. Your first one is so cute! I hope you feel better soon and have lots of fun finishing your bracelet :) It's off to a great start.

  11. Hope you feel better soon Therese! There has been so much ick going around this year.

    Personally, I would highly encourage you to finish your second piece. You have made a wonderful start, and if it were mine I would say it's just about to all come together. The sides are a little thin right now to support the stone> I like your focal and your colors work beautifully with the stone. It will all come together if you keep stitching. That's my two cents! :)

  12. Therese, I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I love what you've done on this challenge piece so far, and know that it will be absolutely beautiful when you feel up to finishing it. Now go drink some hot tea and take a nap so you can recuperate quickly! Healing hugs to you!

  15. I'm sorry you got sick! It always comes at the worst time, doesn't it?

    You're off to an awesome start with your freeform, though! I hope you do finish, because it looks beautiful, but no pressure -- when I'm not feeling a project, nothing in the world can get me to finish it. :)
