Last week I was not able to post as our internet was being a bratty little child, so I am glad that I was able to post this week.
Starting from last week, the theme over at Every Inchie Monday was Squid. I thought about doing Squidward from Sponge Bob but I just couldn't get him to fit on an inchie. So what I did come up with was a silhouette of a squid. Hope you like it.
Now, this weeks theme is Crab, after thinking about doing Squidward for the week before I decided to go with Mr. Krabs. I like how he turned out. LOL If I could have figured out how to put money in his claws I would have!
Also this week I finished a necklace in the Ogalala stitch, this was the first time I ever did the stitch. I messed it up a few times but you can't tell that so I am ok with it. The cool thing about this netting typse stitch is that as you progress on the stitch it naturally curls! I love that its so lacy! I used green and purple 11/0 seed beads on the necklace. I also made it long enough that it did not need a clasp.
Thanks to Marissa, my daughter-from-another-Mother, for modeling the necklace for me.
The necklace is long enough that it can be worn as a bracelet as well. Thanks to my daughter for modeling this one.
Thanks for stopping by the nest! Please continue praying for the Gulf Coast as they are onto the clean up. Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and see all the great artwork over there! Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
