Christmas in July

Hello everyone,

With the heat wave that has been sweeping our area, many people are staying indoors to escape the heat.  Sometimes to pass the time we like to watch a bit of television.  And it seems that throughout the month of July many stores are having Christmas in July promotions.  This in turn makes me start to think about what I am going to make for my closest family and friends this year.

At the end of the Christmas season last year, I bought a box of plain ornaments.  At the time I wasn't sure what I wanted to use them for, but couldn't pass up the bargain.  So with all recent Christmas in July ads, I have decided to make ornaments.  Since I haven't done a lot of stitching work, I think I am going to do some sort of netting design.

So with my box of ornaments, and many colors of seed beads (and/or crystals) I am on the search for a pattern.  Whenever I am trying something new I like to use a pattern and lately I have been doing a lot of stringing work.  Once I get the feel for the stitch I may start to play with it and make it my own.

So to end my blog for today, I challenge you to think about what your going to make for Christmas.  If you choose not to make beaded gifts, I hope you take advantage of the sales that have been going on.
And as always stop by to shop for some great beads for your projects.

Until next time, happy beadin'


  1. Great idea Becky. I should think about that too, I have one started I believe. Thanks for doing such a great job!!!

  2. Thanks for reading my blog. I should probably get started on the ornaments now since I seem to suffer from the "out of sight out of mind" syndrome. :)

    Hope your ornament turn out great and Thanks again. I'll be sure to post a photo on them when I get one done. :)
