Queen Ann

Like tiny grains of sand flowing through my hands so did these tiny delicas as I picked up 3 beads and through the next 3. I forgot how muchI enjoy the rhythm and flow of 3-drop peyote.

I was smitten with MaryLou's Queen Ann's lace pattern. I had them both pinned on my board on Pinterest.

I am glad I took the time to read through the instructions it was like beading with a friend. There were options, choices to make. The graph was broken down into 3 parts which made it easy to follow. Included was a word chart. There was also a paragraph about finishing touches. The closure on your bracelet is very important whether you use a button or bead a toggle. This is the part that dresses up your bead work and adds that special touch. I chose a vintage button from my collection. It reminds me of the times I spent traveling and beading with my friends. It's the perfect match to go with my Janine King bag.

Love it! Queen Anne's Lace was always one of my favorite wildflowers when I lived back East.
