I made this one using the colors and material in the pattern on line
I used my own material on this one. The first one was too sparkly, this one is much more to my liking.
I won't be making any more of them. It was nice to try a little kit that I didn't make but I got tired of using the same bead for the length of the bracelet. But it was a good change from the usual beaded crochet!

Way to go, Mom!
How cool, Tish! And thank you for sharing with me!
Wonder where they are going?
Yep - there she goes!!
Awesome picture. Starting to get fun now! Look at the curve of the earth.
Almost home! Tish said the touch down was like sitting gently on the ground.
Yes! She did it!

You may recall that I posted this picture and asked if anyone thought the crocheted chain I was starting to make would look good with the turquoise leaf pendant...
I appreciate your advice so much. You wrote to me that the colors looked like they were 'fighting'. And, sure enough, once you mentioned it I saw it. I think it was you who suggested a brown. I found the pattern for the tri-stitch chain in one of my books and tried that. It looks exactly like I had wanted it to look. am happy with the combination now so I had to take pictures and post it here for the Beady-Eyed bunch.
I really don't have a good eye for color and how to mix them together and I appreciate your help. That's why I have to teach other people how to bead so they will be there to help me with colors. Sure do miss Phyllis!
In case some of you are wondering what our 'Remota' beader looks like out there in CA - here is a beautiful picture of her. Thanks for sending it, Chrystine! I hope all is going well with you!

I do think I've managed to add a 'comment' section to the right hand side - similar to the one that was on my Comcast webpage - at least I am pretty sure I have done that. Hard to tell at this point. Leave a commentplease, so I can see if it will show up!
And I am making the pictures bigger by uploading them to PhotoBucket and then adding the html to the post instead of uploading directly to Blogger. I like the bigger pictures - I can see them!

Now I am practicing inserting some type of bead into the join. Below are two that I did this weekend. One of them is going to be traveling to a dear friend of mine to take up residence with her in FL. She was so kind as to surprise me with a box of beads and jewelry that she no long wore that it seemed only right that she get one of her beads back!

The organization is called Magic Beans! I visited their home page and they say it much better than I ever could so I am pasting their description here:
"The Magic Beans Village Foundation, Inc dedicated to providing programs and services for developmentally disabled youth and adults. Our mission is to empower, encourage and enable the lives of those we serve."
One of their programs is the therapeutic riding stables for people like Scott, who is challenged with autism. As you can see below, Scott has benefited from and enjoys his time with the Magic Beans riding stables. How cool is that!?
Thank you, Sybil and Scott, for sharing the pictures and the stables! Any time you can send me pictures they will be posted right here. There is a therapeutic riding stables about a mile from me here in Southern Indiana. Perhaps, if I am able to work from home at some point, I will have the time to visit with them.
