Beading and Giveaways!

This brisk weather has definitely been enhancing my beading time!!  I started a 'Beauteous Bangle' over the weekend.

I think it's funny how wonky these things start out but end up nice and structured (like the blue and brown one in the background!)!  I hope to finish tonight.

I celebrated 400 posts last week!  I still can't believe it.  To commemorate the milestone, I'm giving away a copy of Jane Lock's The Art of Beadweaving.  Just head over to that post and leave a comment and your name will be entered for a chance to win.  I'm going to draw the name on Friday of this week.

And speaking of giveaways, over on the Bead-It-Forward site, I'm holding a contest for animal themed pattern submissions.  The winner will receive at least two tutorials (one from me, of the above Beauteous Bangle tutorial, and one from NEDbeads), some seed beads, a sheet of Lacy's Stiff Stuff, a package of needles, and animal charm and more!  

If you are so inclined, please check it out and send in an animal pattern!
