Tilim The Traveling Bracelet

The traveling bracelet Tilim arrived in New Orleans bringing my long time friend and bead enabler Judith Giffin of Beadline Studios.

Friday we played with beads. We experimented with Twin beads and I showed Judith how to do CRAW. Cubic Right Angle. My new favorite stitch.

Saturday we drove to Baton Rouge to visit with Karen Barber Firnberg. It was an opportunity for Judith and Karen to meet in person. We shared stories and did a show and tell of beadwork.

Sunday we treated ourselves to cafe au lait and beignets at Morning Call. It was delicious! Powered sugar was every where!

Time went by way to fast. Monday morning the Traveling Bracelet left With Judith heading west. Tilim's travels started on the east coast and will end on the west coast. The goal is to travel all 50 states in between.

You can read more about the Adventures of the Traveling Bracelets on Sigs blog.
For the next person that Tilim visits, I hope it brings peace and happiness. That is what it brought to me.

I am a little late getting my blog post up today. I haven't been out shopping this Black Friday. I have been a little under the weather.
For 30% off today Use Code: BLACKFRIDAY for everything in the shop.

I have had so much fun making these pinecones. The necklaces are for sale with credit to Barb Grainger for the pattern and her blessing to sell them. I made a few modifactions and adding my own finishing touches I have turned these pinecones into necklaces. They come shipped in a gift box. Perfect for gift giving.

Thank you for supporting Hand-made this Holiday season.
