A Time To Stitch 5 : The Same But Different
Therese and I are hosting another A Time To Stitch Hop. Please sign up here or over at Therese's Treasures. We will need your name, e-mail, and blog address in order to put you on the list.
Sign ups for A Time To Stitch 5 start today and go until Thursday April 17th.
Reveal Date is June 17th.
This time :
You will be taking the same stitch of your own choosing and make three of the same pieces with it, just changing up the main beads each time. You will either change up the size, the color, the finish, or the shape.
If I choose to make a peyote stitch bracelet, I will make one bracelet with size 15 seed beads, one with size 11 seed beads and one with size 8 seed beads.
I will make one in red, one in blue, and one in brown.
I will make one in red matte, one in red transparent, one on red iridescent.
I will make one in seed beads, one in cubes, and one in peanuts.
The idea behind this Hop is to see how changing the bead can change the whole look of the piece, even using the same stitch. It is fascinating how bead choices, as much as stitch choices, change the piece. Hopefully this little experiment will broaden all our repertoires!
Sign Up today through next Thursday for this easy Hop ~ work with a stitch you are comfortable with, and have a little light fun this Spring :-D
