beads interrupted

I was having so much fun using Nicole's super-duper, awesome, how-did-I-ever-bead-without-it Beadbacking, making this (probably) pendant:

but then my Artbeads blogging for beaders program beads came in the mail, so I jumped over to that project (which, ironically, I'm also using Nicole's super-duper, awesome, how-did-I-ever-bead-without-it Beadbacking).  I'm still in the beginning phase, so I'll dedicate my next post to my progress, but here's a sneak peek at the first stitches:

Hmm, whatever could that line have anything to do with the Winter Enchantment theme??!  Stay tuned to find out ;)

This morning I had about 7 minutes before I needed to get to work, so I thought I'd get a bit of beading in.  Remember my messy beading table from a few days ago?


Well, I still haven't cleared it off and I paid the price this morning.  I set my coffee mug right down in the center of my beading mat (because my coffee coaster which sits off to the side was covered with, umm, stuff) and when I went to lift up my Ottlight to turn it on, I hit the edge of the mug and coffee spilled all over my project, beads, scissors, thread, etc etc.    UGH!  So, needless to say, I didn't get any beading done this morning and actually wound up being late to work because I had to clean up the mess.  Hmm, and it wasn't even a Monday!  Go figure.

Your (Probably) pendant is stunning as is all your work, Lynn! I can't tell you how many times I have knocked over beads & spilled things--you think I would learn from this?

Looking forward to see where the line takes your project...

Oh that must have been quite a mess! That'll teach ya!

Love the beadwork though! I bought some of the bead backing but I seem to be allergic to it. I have it airing out on the back porch in the hopes I'll be able to use it at some point.

i think the (probably) pendant is just gorgeous. i love just staring at and studying your bead work. such perfection. i am very curious to know what that squiggly line is going to be! i just got my blogging partners email today and put in my order. can't wait for my stuff to come in too.

I'm going to have to order some of that bead backing. I wish I had some now!!

Sorry to hear about the coffee spill but I smiled just a little...our workspaces seem similar...even the fact that the coaster is covered with stuff....been there done that....there's always tomorrow for bead dreams to come true...

I am really considering changing the name of my Nicole's BeadBacking to Nicole's super duper how did I live without it BeadBacking. Thanks so much for using it and sharing it with others.
Ohhhh the coffee thing... aahh yeaaahhh had it happen many times.

I'm with everyone else- the probably-pendant is just beautiful! It reminds me of ice crystals or snow flakes. And I can't imagine trying to get anything at all done in 7 minutes... you must work so fast!
