BTW: Herringbone AND Peyote

Ok ladies, say a prayer for me. I have joined the upcoming Time to Stitch blog hop and I am attempting herringbone for the first time. And not only herringbone but combining that with peyote AND flipping the pattern back and forth to create waves. Seriously I must have lost my mind picking this pattern! I've started over a few times, but I am pushing myself to complete this project. So what is currently on my beading table this week is a blue wave bracelet that is nearly complete.

Yes, yes I know Bead Table Wednesday is supposed to be posted on a Wednesday. But I was so busy beading I never got to the post.  So here is a peak at the table as of yesterday. Maybe by next Wednesday I'll be able to post the final picture on Flickr. *Fingers crossed*

Hi Cynthia,
The bracelet looks good so far, you are doing a great job. I am looking forward to Tuesday to see the finished piece.

I can see,You have taken part in the contest about the 'Herring Bone and the Peote stitches'.I will be keeping my fingers cross for You-I can also see,You have started making something very nice.Make it,make it-get them down on their knees:-))
As for India:I've never been there,but I know-it is the country of the multicultural impact,also the ancient times with the moder ones.On every step there is something unique to see there.
I've never have the special temptation to visit that country-I knew from people known by me,that it is not only all holidays to spend there.
My very good frien was a famous Polish journalist.It was his dream to see India,but not seen from all the touristic routes.He wanted to see India with hs own eyes,to feel the life of the native society-to be everywhere,where the 'normal,regular tourist' doesn't go.
Once was invited by a very rych and influenced family 'for the evening tea'.The atmosphere was nice,he could speak English freely,as the family members were all well educated in the European Universities.
Everything would be going well,he collected the materials for 'the book of his dreams' about the country of his dreams,but...
Suddenly,on coming back to Poland,he felt bad.Was sent to hospital for serious health inquiry.It occured-he drunk the ameba infection,with some water ,maybe in that 'evening tea'.It wouldn't be the worst-people can be cured,though only partially from ameba.They can live with it,taking the medicine.NOt this was the worse:the ameba developed the cancer in almost all his body.He died one year later.
I'll never go to India,though I love travelling and was in many interesting places in the world.
Sad story...
I'd like to read YOur series.I'll be honored to be able to read it.
Warm Hugs-Halinka-
