Last Week Got Away From Me

Hey at least I finished something! Last week was a bummer. I fought migraines. If you’ve never had one, count your lucky stars, if you have you know they are not fun! I see a neurologist every couple months and had appointment on Wednesday. He changed my medication again as it is still not controlling my headaches as well as he (and I) would like. He also put me on a stronger med for when I do get a migraine and I can tell you that this mornings headache disappeared a lot faster than ones in the past.

Beading is relaxing for me, I actually seem to do more small amounts of simple beadwork when I’m going through major episodes of migraines. I will do patterns familiar to me, easy and fast. Nothing requiring too much thinking or concentration

Now onto what I did accomplish this past week.

Top to bottom…. I finished the African Helix Harlequin bracelet, it has a magnetic clasp. Next is a bracelet from a tutorial from Potomac Beads on YouTube I used olive 6/0’s for the base ladder stitch and amber 11/0’s and two colors of hex beads, olive & ivory, for the Chevron embellishments. The third is a version of Mortira vanPelt of Inspirational Beading’s pattern Valentine Hearts in Potawatomi Chain , I did it only a single width and put a “lacy” looking edge on it. And the last one is a pattern I’ve had quite awhile not sure where I got it. I have made it before. This time I used seed beads in sizes 3,6,8,11,&15 the colors are a teal with the rainbow black 8’s and gunmetal 3’s used in the center of the pattern. The last two bracelets both need clasps.

The weather this weekend is cooperating with us…into the high 70’s today and tomorrow. Tomorrow we are getting together with a few friends for breakfast and riding our bikes to Weatherford to the Space Museum.

Have a great weekend and see you next week!
