So were at day 3 of 2013 and I have not worked on any projects - I like to blame my hand but with the Christmas season and running around for work and home I really have not had much time.
When in that mood I typically surf and checkout what everybody else is doing or find some project I might like to work on.
I found a cool wire design bracelet that I downloaded the pattern to last night and it will be good therapy for my hand (my hand is not in too bad shape - I can type, I can cut with scissors pretty good, , write, and draw again (started a zentangle last night ) there is limited movement - you dont think when you say palms up - I cant quite do 1/2 turn as yet but I am getting doors knobs open better - time is what it will take and use)
back to my plan for therapy - want to do some hand stitching, wire wrapping etc.. I entered braded bracelet and got the following pic - I loved it .
an amazing bracelet by wire jewelry artist Dianna Wolfe. on her site
this is called croc ridge braid
So I searched and searched for a pattern and found
Its a purchase instructions - reasonably priced for a 37 page 130 pictures on how too.
there is also another instruction on a basket weave bracelet as well - have not downloaded that yet !- but looks interesting
Now I also have Cindy's wire weaving kit I need to bring out and work on as well
can be found at : http://www.cooltoolchick.com/weaver.html
so this weekend its bring out the wire and sit (since I once again have the flu which I hope does not turn into pneumonia) to work on wire projects and some zentangle - want a new stamp for 2013
