2 crafty. 2 many ideas. 2 much yarn. 2 many pattern books. 2 many craft supplies collecting dust. Time to get moving. Past time to define myself. This begins my journey.

This weekend I took a little break from crocheting and worked on some bead projects. I love working with seed beads. My two favorite beading crafts for now seem to be weaving on the bead loom and bead kumihimo. Saturday night I did some research on the Internet - looking for a bead designer so I can play around with patterns for some bookmarks and small tapestries to weave on the loom. I found a free one, but am not too happy with the print options. I want to be able to print a pattern on an index card so I can prop it up in my loom while weaving. I'd really like to see a designer I can use both on my laptop and on a tablet pc (yet to be purchased).
Today I spent some time finishing a couple of bracelets in my WIP pile. I have a few beaded kumihimo bracelets waiting for the finishing touches and clasps. I was only able to finish 2. I need to buy some more spacers so I can finish up the others. I have a bracelet started in my kumihimo disk, and I have some sets of beads strung waiting to be woven. The beaded kumihimo bracelet is another one of my projects that I hope will turn into sales one day.
