I snuck in on the back end of this challenge. Therese and Christine were so gracious to allow me to hop in. The girls wanted to give everyone a chance to explore two specific stitches, peyote, and herringbone. Now these happen to be my all time favorite stitches, so you'd think I created something over the top, right? Well, if you've read any of my blog posts, you'll see that I'm a wee bit addicted to challenges, so of course I'm always hopping from one deadline to the next! :)
Anyway, enough of that, let's see some pics, shall we??
See those double loops? That was an experiment that I'm trying. This way, you can wear it loose, with just one loop, or close to your wrist with the double loop.
And I had to throw the girlyness in with the sweet little picot edging. I like how it sets off the white.
I have another project I'm working on with a twisted herringbone rope, but I wasn't able to finish it to include it in this challenge, so I whipped up a quick little bracelet for my daughter last night, to show off the versatility of herringbone.
I made the ring into an oval, to give some resistance to the squares. If she finds it too loose, I can easily stitch a couple of the beads on the end to each other, to close up the gap a bit.
Here are the list of participants. Please go visit and see their creations! Blessings, Shirley
