Bead crochet... It's so much fun to do, but it seems that every time I'm working on one thing, I'm thinking about another pattern I can create. Today I spent awhile making multi-colored ropes -- really long ones -- out of size 11 beads. Lots and lots and lots of beads. For a rope that's 68 inches long (since that's the length of one that was finished today), there are 48 beads per inch. 48x68=3264 See? Told you it was a lot!
So here I am crocheting away with those 3000+ beads, and what I'm thinking is how cool it would be to have a Halloween-colored rope or necklace or something. Having the attention span of a gnat, I immediately stopped crocheting to go look through my bead supplies (tens of pounds of beads!) to see if I have just the right shade of orange. Now I just have to determine whether it will be a random design or something with a pattern. Hmmmmm....
There's a new addition to Dooley's family, also. One of my eBay friends, pinkparismatch, mentioned that she has a six-year-old daughter who's about to lose her front teeth. So Dooley now has a cousin named Mackenzie. Pink hasn't even seen the picture yet! It'll be a surprise when I post it in the group. :-)
Okay. Enough babble for today. I'm in the middle of a project!
