Wedding Rings

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary, and what better way to celebrate then to show you a bracelet I just finished with a pattern that looks like the wedding ring quilt pattern. 

I love this pattern. The bracelet is rhythmic to make, and lately I've been needing that to relax. I made another version of this pattern back in August, but this one is purple ... my hubby's favorite color. Not that he's going to wear it; this one will be available over on my Etsy site.

It always amazes me to think how long my husband and I have been together as it feels like yesterday that I met him. But then I can't remember my life much before I met him. Funny how life works that way...how someone becomes such a part of your life.  And if you're lucky enough to have kids, what a wonderful experience it is to see them grow. Not just physically, but becoming people. And people that are part you, and part your husband. Such a blend of us both. No one tells you life will be this way, or what deep, mixed emotions that brings on. Something I wouldn't change for anything.

As my younger sister used to say: "Happy Andabirthday!" Many more fulfilling and fun years together! =)
Beautiful bracelet, I've always adored the wedding ring pattern, both on a quilt and... now... as a beading pattern. Brilliant choice.

Beautiful version of that bracelet! Every time I see someone's, it looks different. I have the book, and will have to get to it, apparently...it is calling my name.
