A Time To Stitch Six Sign Up

Hi Y'all,

Wow it is hard to believe that it is mine and Christine's sixth time presenting A Time To Stitch Challenge.  It seems like just a few months ago we did our first one on peyote and herringbone stitches, but that was way back in May and June of 2012.  

Since this is our sixth time Christine and I thought we would make it just a bit more challenging.  The objective for ATTS 6 is to use a graphed chart, word chart, or picture chart using peyote, square, RAW, or brick stitches.

Here are some examples:

graphed chart

Word chart

Picture graph chart

Your items can be one dimensional or three dimensional

Little Bead Boxes written by Julia S. Pretl (you can get this book from Amazon .com in paper back or Kindle form)

This tutorial can be purchased on Etsy

Amy Severino of Amy Beads blog  has also gave permission to use the patterns from the Bead It Forward web site. If you do use the Bead It Forward patterns please send in what you created to the Bead It Forward project, it is for a good cause.

Also there are programs you can use to make your own patterns to use.  The program I use is Bead Tool 4 it is a free site or you can pay a small yearly charge and be able to save your patterns. 

Sign ups for ATTS 6 are from today through the 17th of October, and the reveal will be the 10th of January 2015, so come and sign up and join in on the fun here or over on Christine's blog.

Happy beading Y'all,



  1. I already have two graphs in mind I wanted to make. I made them both once, but gave them away in a swap. So I think I'm in. Again! :)

  2. Love the challenge! Count me in!

  3. Hi Therese, Sounds like fun. I have had the Julia Pretl book for awhile but haven't made anything from it so this will be a great opportunity to try it out. I also LOVE the Desert Rose pattern - thanks for introducing me to that Etsy store. This will be a great way to start the beading year.

  4. What a great challenge! I'd love to be in.

  5. Count me in, the last round was great fun!

  6. Please count me in. Your challenges are always lots of fun. Becky Pancake

  7. I look forward to seeing what you create Therese! These inspiration pieces are beautiful. I love the box since it is something that can be on display to enjoy every day.

  8. Therese, please count me in. Your challenges are always great fun.
