!!! Blog Hop Announcement !!!
Therese from Therese's Treasures and I are co-hosting a Blog Hop called "A Time to Stitch". We are asking that you make a project using either Peyote or Herringbone stitch. That is it! Therese and I are both beadweavers and we have not seen any blog hops that were geared toward just weaving, so that brought us to today.
If you are an experienced weaver and want to sign up, we want you! If you are just getting started and need the push to get some more practice, we want you! If you have never done it before and want to try your hand at it, we want you! You can submit a completed project or sample swatches showing what you learned as you got to know the stitches.
Here are a few samples of Peyote Stitch and some links to helpful tutorials:
~my bracelet using flat, even count Peyote and tubular Peyote
~Therese's bracelet using 2-drop Peyote
~Therese's necklace using Cellini Spiral, a variation on tubular Peyote
~Peyote Turotial on you-tube

And here are some Herringbone samples and tutorial links:

Sign ups for A Time to Stitch Challenge and Blog Hop start today and go through Saturday May 12th. The Hop itself will be on Tuesday, June 12th. We are taking 30 participants and encourage you to e-mail us with any questions you might have regarding these stitches. Between the two of us we should be able to answer most questions :-)

Please leave your name and e-mail address and blog address on either my blog or Therese's blog when you sign up.
And now it is Time to Stitch!
~feel free to put this badge on your blog...it doesn't link to anywhere, but it will act as a reminder :-)
