Cindy’s Beaded Buttons and Purse

Hi

This is Quirky Weaver 1 – Cindy.

Kat and I have registered for the Bead Journal Project 08 and I’m thrilled about being a part of something so amazing. I think I kind of made Kat sign up for it, but once she saw it, she was excited. We’re both new to blogging – but not to beading or weaving or quilting. I’ve been checking out different blogs related to the BJP08 and am learning so much from them.

To warm up for the BJP08 – I’ve done some beaded buttons. I’ve been so excited about these buttons – and am having a blast with them. Here are a few pictures.

If I don’t have some bead embroidery in progress now – I get cranky.

I’ve been working on a woven piece to have for CopperLoom class – a purse. It may be a bit over the top, but I’ve had fun with it. I have a picture in progress and the finished piece.

The picture of the piece in progress shows the loom built out of pvc pipe. Copper has gone up in price, and we’re trying out the pvc to see what it will take. It’s not as sturdy as copper, but it holds up just fine for small pieces. Less than 10 inches in width and it seems to work. This one is 7 inches wide, and 16 inches long.

Originally there was a beaded button for it, but it was a bit too much…..

    I don’t know how to contact you and Kat via e-mail. I saw this on another blog and thought you could suggest something to her. She really wants a copper version of the loom. She needs some clarification form the other site you are selling the looms through.

    Also, the navigation buttons on the website are not working.

    Hello,
    Your work is so lovely, and your blog so helpful.
    I’m just beginning to work in tapestry, and am building my own loom. Can you share information about constructing the “raddle” for the copper and PVC looms you have on your blog. I see two wooden rulers – are you using pins, nails or hooks of some kind between the rulers, and how are they all joined together?
    Thanks for any assistance you can provide!
    Leslie
