Sparkly Wheels and CQ Wool Christmas Ornaments

Last Thursday was the Ogden Art Group conference, and we made Sparkly Wheel buttons. It was a pattern in Interweave’s Beadwork July 2010 publication, and we had a lot of enjoyable choosing colors. The instructions were simple to follow– even for us beginner beaders– and the outcomes were pleasing.

This is the bead I made:

You may acknowledge it as the bead I utilized on Joyce’s round-robin Stem block. When I chose the colors, her block should have been in my subconscious.

And here are a couple of more:

Janet didn’t want to bead, but brought along another project, her crazy quilted wool Christmas ornaments:

I do so like those accessories and have actually bought some for myself, and my child.
