2012 Finish or Frog A Long - January Update

Well, January has just whizzed by hasn't it! I can't believe it is already time to post the finish or frog along update.

Both Dee and Rebecca were super busy in January and unable to make much progress on their projects, I frogged mine as I did not have any more beads to complete the bracelet. But, drumroll please..............

Catherine finished her beautiful necklace, "Once I made the decision on the rope colours, the whole thing came together fairly quickly, with the peyote tubes done while watching Sherlock, and the double toggle (I didn't have a small clasp as the
instructions suggested, so I adapted a Laura McCabe component) made during my Lunch break. I did break a needle in the toggle tubes as they are quite tight! Now all I need is an occasion to wear the necklace!"

The projects for February will be posted soon,

Happy beading!

Thank you for the drum roll! Jill Devon's design is lovely, and I'm glad I finished! Would have been heartbreaking to Frog!

What a gorgeous piece! I love the double toggle idea. I think you should "make" an occasion to wear it! :)

Yay! Congrats on finishing such an amazing necklace Catherine. If you can't find a suitable occasion to wear it soon then you shall just have to wear it when you pop to the shops!
Well done on frogging yours too Sarah and hope you can put the beads to a better use
