A Time To Stitch Hosted by Therese Frank and Christine Altmiller

Thanks for stopping by to check out my post and my attempt to be a part of the  "A Time To Stitch" challenge.  What an honor to be included in this challenge with such incredible talent these ladies possess! The challenge included 4 stitches, however, only 2 were required to be demonstrated.  The 4 stitches were Spiral Rope, Chenille Stitch, Net Stitch, and Chevron Stitch.  Below is the Chenille stitch crafted with 6 pound weight Fireline, size 8/0 seed beads in pink and green.

Next is the Chevron Stitch crafted with 6 pound Fireline, size 8/0 seed beads 6mm Crystals and size 3mm crystals topped by a base metal toggle clasp.

The next bracelet is the Net Stitch.  I used 6 pound Fireline with size 11/0 seed beads 
for the picot edging, 4mm crystals for the connection beads and darned if I can 
remember what size the majority of the seed beads in the bracelet are.  I think they 
are size 11/0 beads as well!  

I had such an awesome time with this challenge!!! Kudos to our hosts on ATTS4, Therese Frank (my Bestie) and Christine Altmiller. This is my first challenge and my apologies for being a little late in posting, however, I am new to the blogging world and I'm a slow learner...hehehe..  I am so excited about doing more challenges as I like to be forced out of my comfort zone and learn more about beading and bead embroidery as well.  Please take time to check out the other ladies blog spots for their challenge pieces!
