Beadalong Progress - Week 8

Two beautiful completed projects to share with you this week!
Gloria has completed her fabulous necklace, "Finished at last! As I said in an earlier post; component based designs are difficult for me but I am happy that I finished this one. This will be winging its way into my sister’s xmas stocking – hope she likes it! Thanks for sticking with me."

Catherine has made her second gorgeous Stargazer Bracelet "I'm so pleased to say I completed the second version of 'Stargazer' by Laura McCabe in my own colours. This was begun at the class I took in September, and was put on hold while I made the kit version in blue/silver/purple. I opted to make a straight strip of units rather than the more complex initial version, as suggested by Jo Prowse. In the delicas and 15s I chose, all Miyuki brand, I found the units worked up very slightly smaller, so I needed a little more length at the end in the attaching loops of charlottes. It is a bit snugger fitting than the original, but very comfortable to wear."

Well done to everyone who completed their goals! I will try harder next time, I promise!

That's it for this beadalong but I'm sure that we will organise another sometime next year.

Happy beading,

It was fun taking part and I'm sure the added impetus of reporting progress kept me from leaving these as UFOs
