A Time To Stitch Three

 
 
Thanks to Christine and Therese I have been playing with the flying missiles again.  Out of our choices I picked the Russian Spiral and the Brick Stitch.  I started with the Brick Stitch....I can say that I like the Peyote stitch better but, it was fun learning.




I did get to practice my fringe making too!




Next I started practicing my spiral stitches.......



I had no trouble learning them....it was just that I just didn't see me.......
I thought well I did learn.....
I could quit.......
Nah.....keep trying....

 
 



I finally chose  tone on tone with a few accents......more of something I will wear......
 
It's simple and me!

Now I can say I  know a few more stitches!
 
Thanks ladies!!  You are the best!!
 
 go visit Therese or Christine to see what everyone else has been up to!

  1. ha! I was thinking about you and your flying missiles! I did russian spiral beaded beads ... and it was all I could think of - ha!

    I really, really love the feel of your pieces. So tribal, so earthy ... just gorgeous!

  2. Oh wow! I'm so glad you kept going! I never would have thought to add a random accent bead. What a striking bracelet! I'm with you, I far prefer peyote over brick, but that's a very cute pendant, and the fringe is perfect for it.

  3. I love the fringed pendant - tribal is what I am attracted to currently as well. I also love the simple Russian spiral bracelet. You truly do mirror my style. Very nice!

  4. Oh Kim~you always have the best pieces...ones I really gravitate toward. I love the Brick pendant...the Earth tones and the Native feel to the pattern speak so much to why I wanted to learn to bead, then veered off course but am looking to get back there again. I just love the look of it and how it makes a big statement, even though it is not a large, loud piece. And your spiral...I love the monotone, with the occasional cream pop. It is absolutely something I would go to if I saw it in a store. That dark brown is gorgeous. I am so at home when I visit here. Thanks so much for continuing with those flying missiles. Therese and I really appreciate your willingness to sign up again and again :-)

  5. Oooh, I love the tone-on-tone effect of the Russian spiral! So elegant and fabulous -- I know you'll be able to dress this up and down, to wear all the time. And your description of seed beads as flying missiles made me laugh. The people sitting near me were a little startled, but the description is perfect!!

  6. Hi Kim,
    You did a fantastic job! I love both of your pieces and I must say I like the tone on tone of your Russian spiral bracelet just gorgeous. I think the brick stitch pendant is beautiful and very tribal looking and goes well with the bracelet. Thank you so much for joining in round 3 and giving these stitches a try, I hope that you will join us for round 4.

  7. Both pieces are lovely. Your choice of colors is just perfect. When I get the seed beads out they turn into flying missles as well. Sometimes I even try to aim them in specific directions ;-)

  8. These pieces are gorgeous! The tone on tone with the splash of eggshell color is beautiful! The fact that your stunning focal matches perfectly makes it even that more special!

  9. I didn't think spirals were for me, either, when I joined this challenge. I was really surpirsed at how much I enjoyed stitching them and I would definitely wear your tone-on-tone bracelet. The matte beads with the subtle shine of the ivory is simply fabulous.

  12. Kim, your beadweaving is always so beautiful. I love the earthy subtle tones of the pieces and the little pops of cream that accent the spiral are perfect. Beautifully done!

  15. Kim, what absolutely stunning pieces. I am always in awe of beadwork like this. I love the neutral colors you used and I'm crazy about the fringe necklace. Would wear it in a heart beat!! ;-)
