I don't know if anyone remembers but back in June I started to play with the herringbone stitch. I made a bracelet that was good for learning the basics of flat herringbone, which is this bracelet, Braenock.
I had worked up a second bracelet that was the next step up that is good for learning to increase and decrease in herringbone but I didn't have time to take a picture of it and share it with you! This is that bracelet, Marbrae. I love the way that it forms soft ripples with the increases and decreases.
Life here has been very busy. Once the boys got out of school, life took over! We were busy getting my husband ready for a missions trip to South Korea to help building a language school. He just got back at the end of last week. While he was gone, I was picked to serve on a jury for a homicide in our county court. That was an interesting experience and one that I would prefer not to repeat! Once was enough. The boys have started their soccer practices and that keeps us hopping at night. I think though that things may settle into somewhat of a routine and I can get back to beading. I haven't done too much beading this summer and I am ready to jump back in!
I hope you are all having a good summer!!
