But these past two weekends, have each had a day that was a little damp and I've finally had a chance to get to some beading! Last weekend I had time to finish a project I've been working on for months, just haven't had time to blog about it! This is made with some beaded beads and a stash of ZNetShows beads! Think I may add more fringe to this...just need a thinner needle!
Ms. Daisy" bracelet. The pattern can be found on Fusion Beads' website here. I have one that I made a few years ago and I love to wear it. The drape is fantastic and I get tons of compliments on it! One of my co-workers was cooing at it the other day so I said, I'd make her one if she told me her favorite colors. Black and blue was the order and I'm loving how it's coming out. Although I'm getting to that special moment (I know you beaders have 'been there') where I'm not 100% sure that I'll have enough of the darker color to complete this!!
In other bead-y news, the first round of Bead-It-Forward squares came in for the 2014/2015 cycle! Aren't they great!?
I'm super excited. There are lots of patterns on the Bead-It-Forward website and Facebook page if you'd like to join in!
-----A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of being a beta reader for a recently published book. As the mom of a voracious reader, I am always thrilled to come across a great author for tweens and young teens. I have definitely found that in Keith Robinson. If you have a middle-schooler who likes to read, and likes to read fast paced, fun adventures, I highly recommend his Island of Fog series (I'm just about to start book 7 out of the nine, so more on this series soon) and his newest book, Sleep Writer!
Sleep Writer was just published last week and here's what I wrote about it on Amazon: As a fan of the Island of Fog series, I was excited to start a new adventure written by Keith Robinson! I was not disappointed. This book is a fantastic read, with an original plot and enough action to keep you wanting for more. Robinson's writing is so descriptive, you'll feel like you are right along side these characters as they journey through all their escapades! My middle-school-age son and I can't wait to see what's in store for Liam, Madison and Ant!
Have you read any good books lately?
