But for now, I just want to look at pretty beads, how about you? This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Emotion, and this one surely gives out my emotions this weekend for sure.
For this inchie I used 3 colors of Delicas, sadly it is not to visible in the picture but the outlining and eyes are done in a silver-lined green, and the silver lined orange of the face is not that discernible. But I still like how it came out. GRRRRRRR! Kinda how I feel at the moment! LOL
Also this week, over at 2x2x2, the theme is 9 patch. I did not completely know what a 9 patch was. I figured it has something to do with quilting, and it does. Nine Patch quilts are the kind that have a 9 squared design in a single design square of a repetitive design in a quilt. But, it is also a stretchable, repeatable images reduced to their smallest size. Most commonly used in Android devices.
But for me this week I went the quilt route. I designed my twinchie from a quilt pattern that I saw online. I originally made this design using 4 colors of Delicas. One of which was supposed to be blue. But when it came time to make the piece I found that I did not have enough of the blue that I wanted to use so I grabbed another opaque color that I thought would work out just as well. Green. It did not dawn on me until I was about 4-5 rows in that the colors that I chose were the colors of the Green Bay Packers. As a loyal Illinoisan I am not a big fan of the "cheese heads" I may not have teams that win all the time (or sports that I follow, like football, but whatever)but still they are not cheese heads! I am a self admitting "flat lander" and I am not ashamed!
But anyway, here is my Twinchie. Despite the colors I hope that you like it.
You may notice that I did this and the last twinchie out of order. I skipped last times and did this one instead, but I did fix that last week, so the next time, (in 2 weeks) I will be back on the right track with them. This isn't the first time I have messed up and it wont be the last time, of that I am sure!
I do hope that you have a blessed and creative week, and thank you for leaving me a comment, it means alot to me. Also, if you are interested in joining in the fun over at EIM or 2x2x2 just follow the links and check them out, we would love to have you join in.

Thanks, glad I can encourage you and thanks for the encouragement backReplyDelete
Wonderful bead work again! I love the colorful twinchie so much :-)ReplyDelete
Dear Freebird, thank you for participating in the TwobyTwo! That is such a neat pattern, sorry it isn't in your fave colors. I watch the Huskies beat the Rockets last night, does that help? Sorry to hear about the car--can't live with or without them! I have one window that really likes to be down not up, too! Have a brilliant day! cReplyDelete
Thanks Cheryl, I am glad that the huskies won, lol sorry that your car is doing what mine is.Delete
yes looking at pretty beads can be very therapeutic - sometimes you need that. Cars can be such expensive little toys, yet so essential. Beautiful work this week.ReplyDelete
So true Kia, thanks!Delete
