Sneak Peek and more free patterns

I've been having some very busy work weeks lately...but I have managed to spend a bit of time beading!  I am almost finished with my second Beading Babes piece and am looking forward to seeing everyone's creations!  Here are some sneak peeks of my pieces so far:
I just love the way the St. Petersburg stitch feels when completed.  It's like fabric!

To my other Beading are you liking this Earthly Tones piece?  I love the way the cubes come together in the tubular herringbone, but I have never done any weaving with size 6 beads and I'm finding it a little challenging!  I almost wish I had some yarn to weave them with!

I am starting to think about my piece for the 2nd Annual Challenge of Color blog hop.  My color palette by Design Seeds is "Winged Tones".
I absolutely love these colors and started selecting some beads to start my project.  To kick it up a notch, I've commissioned my Bead Soup Blog Party partner to create a focal piece for me!  I'm so excited! 

Here are some more bird patterns for any fellow weavers who are interested in creating a square for the Bead It Forward quilt project!  I am planning to conquer one this weekend!

Feel free to contact me if you need a larger resolution pic of the pattern or if you would like it in a pdf.  
Have a great weekend!
