Giveaway on my Facebook

Hey Ladies (and the occasional Man)!

Giveaway time on my Facebook page since I hit 100+ "likers" on the page!  
I never had a goal to reach 100 or even 50 for that matter.  But on Sunday, I saw that I was only 9 away and decided to make it my goal.   Therese spread the word and had me to 101 within an hour or two.  I now call her the Town Crier :-)  Thanks Therese!

I spared the Facebook people the details, as some would understand and some would not.  I beaded for 12 hours yesterday, only to tear everything apart again and again.  TWELVE HOURS.  I had on good music, the sun was shining in, all was right in my world.  But it just wasn't happening.  Zigzag was wrong.  Peyote was wrong.  Herringbone was wrong.  And so on down the stitch list.  I think I was trying too hard.  And when I try too hard, I need to go back to basics.  So this giveaway piece is the result of going back to basics, with a twist.  I still had to create the focal by drilling and painting.  In the end, the simple look was the best look.  Today...I am keeping it way simple to get out of this mini-rut.

If you want to throw your  name in the hat, just "like" the FB page and leave a comment under the picture.

Here is what you will find there:

Also, I posted a new item on Etsy.  Dainty little Late October Earrings. 

See you Thursday for the Time To Stitch 2 Hop!!!

Hi Christine,
Town Crier huh LOL It was my pleasure to help you get what you were seeking. That is a beautiful necklace and going back to the basic is sometimes all that is needed. I can not wait to see what everyone has done for our little challenge.
