Well, it looks like this will be the penultimate part of the journey. I’m now 10.5 hours into the bracelet and it’s almost done, although I have had to take a bit of a backward step.
This is how the beast looked at 9 hours:
And this is him at 10.5 hours. You’ll notice the bar of the toggle is no longer attached. That’s because when I was measuring it I reminded myself that I like to wear my bracelets quite long. I don’t know why I did this because they drive my nuts when they’re too long and come winging off when my hands are cold. Also, it’s quite a heavy bracelet, which would make it fall off even more.
Check back soon, as I am sure I’ll have the finished item at some point over the weekend.
For my next project I’m going to get the sewing machine out and make a bag for my yoga mat. I saw a nice free Amy Butler pattern for one, so just need to nip into town to get some fabric for it tomorrow. After that’s done, I’ve got a nice beaded cuff to make. I also want to make some eyeball jewellery a la Laura McCabe (if anyone has a spare $1,600, please feel free to buy me her shark fin bracelet *drool*). One of my beady buddies, Lesley made this gorgeous ring and she’s definitely inspired me to make something too.
