Key fob - blue cream

Here's the third in the series of the beaded key fobs. The first 2 seemed to be a big hit with my co-workers. This one is for another co-worker - I'm hoping to get it shipped out to her next week.

The lampwork bead is another by Rufusandroxy. I find these colors are soft and soothing. I'm really enjoying the twisted herringbone. Not sure when I'll be able to stop - but that's a good thing. I plan to make a couple of bracelets for Christmas.

Hi Grace....
Thanks for visiting my Blog :0)
Yes I love "Hey Sailor" too!!!!
Tickles my funnybone.
These Key Fobs are awesome. Lucky co-workers to receive one.
I haven't tried that stitch . I still can't get the herringbone one, and the only thing that is "twisted" there is me VBG..
Have a great day

Hi Maggie... I found the twisted herringbone stitch to be rather easy. It did take a couple of tries at it, but I seemed to catch on quick to this one - not too much frustration for a change :-)

Leaves of Grass

This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
