I figured it would be prudent to begin this blog with some organization. In this case, that means figuring out what on earth I need to be working for classes in the next few months. All my May classes are finished, but June is just barely a week away and I need to get planning!

Stash Worm Bracelet at Beaded Bliss in Harrison – Intermediate Beadweaving
This is great bracelet for using up the extra see beads in your stash. I created this particular bead soup by combining all of my almost empty tubes into one big pile and selecting them at random while I stitched. It takes about 10g of 11/0 round seed beads for the top layer embellishment and about 10g of 6/0 seed beads for the base. It’s not a difficult pattern, but takes some time to get the base finished before starting the top embellishment. It’ll be a long class (maybe 3+ hours), but we’ll definitely take a snack break or two!

Toying with Tiles Bracelet at Bead Stash in Kettering, OH – Intermediate Beadweaving
There are so many beautiful colors and finishes available in the Czechmate Tiles that I just had to make a pattern showcasing them. This design is a great way to make a thick, casual band that features large blocks of color without too many frilly details. This class should only run about two hours.
I’ll let you know what’s going on in July as I get my own plans settled. It’s going to be a big month, with my 22nd birthday on the 4th and Ethan and I moving from our apartment by the 31st. I will keep you posted!
