New followers, I won, and a start and finish

Hello and welcome to my newest followers! If I'm not a follower of your blog, please let me know so that I can correct that!

I started, and finished, this tennis bracelet this evening. It only took about an hour! The pattern is based on a pattern by Sandra Halpenny with some modifications by Angie. I used silver lined silver seed beads, 11/0 and crystal AB 4 mm swarovski bicones. I love how it sparkles I plan to do more in red, blue, green, purple, and whatever other crystal colors I may have. I should be able to crank out a couple during the superbowl later today.

I entered a giveaway on Victorian Motto Sampler's blog and won this hand dyed trim. The color is called Champagne and I love it!

I think I'm going to use it in finishing this as either a flat fold or a pin keep.


I plan to post again later today or tomorrow my progress on Dance of the Roses for the Themealicious and WIPocalypse challenges.

I'll be stitching and beading today, especially during the superbowl. I'll be glad when that's over! I live near Indianapolis and that's all that has been on TV! Super this and super that! In case you can't tell, I'm not particularly an NFL fan. I watch the game for the commercials, LOL!

Take care!

Terri
