Hiya everyone and thanks for stopping by the nest this week. I have been trying to work on Christmas ornaments, (STILL)! But in between those times I have finished my Inchie this week. The theme this week is a difficult one to portray in beads. The theme over at Every Inchie Monday is texture. I was originally going to use opaque and matte beads but I was afraid that the camera would not pick it up so I changed the colors. I used a light blue that I also used in this week's twinchie and a metallic bluish color. I designed it in a lattice pattern. Hope you like it.
Last week I was supposed to do a twinchie, and I actually did the wrong one. So I will wait to show that until next week. But Cheryl over at 2x2x2 was kind enough to extend time for those of us who missed the deadline, apparently I was not the only one. Last weeks theme was IS. But I was really excited to get this one done. I have actually waited for it for some time. I love the ideal behind the theme.
For me, the take on the theme IS was so clear. 1 Corinthians 13:13: So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these IS love. So for my IS twinchie I redid a pattern that I created for a Stethoscope bead for the nurse that took care of my daughter after her surgery last year. It has a cross, a rainbow, and a dove; faith, hope and love.
For it I used 10 colors of delicas. Most of the colors are in the rainbow. The camera does not pick up the colors properly but there are 7 colors in it. I really love this pattern. It always gives me such peace when I bead it. I know it is because of the meaning of the pattern, but I do just enjoy beading it. Here it is, I hope that you like it.
