I hope everyone had a good Sunday. I spent a lot of the day beading and relaxing. I am totally hooked on the beading. I also got to go out to dinner with Chris again tonight. Two date nights in one week is a quite the record. : ) When we returned from dinner I still needed to do my butterfly. I wanted to try beading one again. I did start i,t but did not finish it. Here is what I have so far. Here is butterfly #48.
So this is not a finished butterfly but I did spend two hours on it. That may be hard to believe by looking at it, but it is true. This is a small butterfly about 2 1/4" wide. The tan color is the backing that you use to bead on. My plan is to turn this into a ring.
Below I have a picture of it next to the cuff bracelet I am working on. The cuff is what I took a class on yesterday. The pieces you see are flat beads that I have beaded around to hold them to the backing. There is still a lot more work to do on that as well.
That's all for tonight. I hope to finish the butterfly ring soon. Maybe not by tomorrow but hopefully the next day. Have a great day tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.
