Personal Challenge- Wednesday and Thursday

I'm a day behind posting my accomplishments for the week. Bob and I went to the Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore, MD on Wednesday and to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA on Thursday. I was afraid there wouldn't be many flowers at Longwood since it's now officially Autumn here but I was pleasantly surprised. The entire garden was in bloom! We both enjoyed our day trips but I didn't have much beading time.

I can do some simple beading while riding in the car so I started a free form peyote necklace. Here's what I have done so far. I've decided to try putting the catch in the front and put some sort of dangling fringed embellishments on the ends. The shop I started putting my pieces in wants recycled-repurposed crafts so I'll see what odds and ends I have to use as embellishments.

I did finish the fall colored bracelet I started earlier this week. The button and most of the embellishment beads are recycled. And I made 2 more snowflakes.

When I finally got a chance to catch up on things yesterday I found one of my free form cuffs in a treasury made by enchantedbeads, one of my fellow EstyBeadweavers. Thanks Ileana.

I can't imagine doing a free form necklace! I'm working on my second ever free form bracelet right now...and it's going slow because it's HARD to let go of having a pattern!

You can bead in the car?! How do you keep the beads from flying everywhere? Sadly. I'm the driver when I go anywhere. LOL

Nice job. You are keeping so well to your challenge!

You are welcome! I had much fun doing this treasury and your piece was perfect to fit in.

Great job there Dawn with keeping up your challenge!
Wish I could bead in the car but I'm always the driver!
