Very few things make me happier than hanging out with a friend and being able to completely be myself. Couple that with a great bead session and you pretty much have nirvana for me. Ya, it's the simple things in life that make me happy.
So a few months back I got together with my beady friend Christine and she showed me a pattern she was working on that looked like little quilts. She created this pattern during her 'beading in circles' phase, which I'm not entirely sure if she's made it through yet? Doesn't matter because she created some pretty amazing, inventive and beautiful bead weaving this last winter. And this is one of them. You can see all the variations she created with these little quilts over on her blog One Kiss Creations.
I met up with Christine and her Mom's quilting friends (guess crafting in numbers runs in the family). The two of us were busy teaching the next generation as we both brought our daughters to the get away. It was fun to see them become fast friends and get to work on creating batch after batch of polymer beads! I still haven't had a chance to get a photo of them, but I'll be back with a post on those later.
Today I wanted to show you that I did learn this fun pattern from Christine to create my own 'Little Quilts' bracelet. Thank you Christine for being that friend that I can be myself and just enjoy hanging out crafting for a weekend.
