Fourth of July and a lot of Yarns to tell about

Hope that everyone in America had a great 4th of July!  Happy birthday America!  For the rest of you I hope that you had a great 4th of July as well. LOL.  Mine was great, me and my kids went up to Illinois to see my family.  We had a "family" birthday.  Since we can't all be together for each birthday my brother had a great idea to celebrate all the birthdays on one day.  It was great!  Seeing all the family and hanging out with them.  We all had so much fun that no one took pictures!!!  WHAT!

Wellll except for this picture of the cake!  Yea I know, forget the family but take pictures of the cake!  I know I an horrible but when you check out the cake you will so understand!

 

 Isn't this cool!  This was the cake topper, there was also a sheet cake to go along with it.  But this was the centerpiece.  Everyone had their names printed on the leaves of the cake.  The cardinals represents my Moms favorite birds.  This cake design gives me alot of beady ideas!  Not to mention that it tasted amazing!

Now to the beady things.  This week I worked on a triangle beaded piece.  I did finish it but I have yet to take pictures of that.  The triangle is a design from Anabel27






I also worked on another 100 inch necklace; it is actually 98 inches but that is the closest I could get.  I really like this one.  This necklace has 4mm rounds,One beads,6mm seeds, Hematite bugles, casillica diamond shaped beads, gemstone cube beads, Diablo beads, 8mm beads.  I also made a bracelet using the same beads to match.  These are so much fun to make but there is alot of math going into them. I think that is why I like them so much though.






Also this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Yarn.  Living with 2 cats this was my first thought.  Cats and yarn go so well together.  LOL  Maybe too well.  This inchie uses 4 colors of delicas.  I like how it came out. 




Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving comments.  I always enjoy reading them.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM to check out all the yarn inchies over there.

  2. Love the cake, and the beadwork! It is totally OK to put up the photos of your splendid beading ( I can't imagine doing 98", or can I?) on FB Beaddreamz group- you are a Summer Inspiration!

  4. Freebird, the cake alone is reason to celebrate--that looks awesome. And i love the beadwork. The kitty is cute and a hundred-inch strand is pretty phenomenal, but the geometry of the triangle piece is amazing. Have a brilliant day! c
