Grammy Beads Final Edition!

Today is the day. Today I finish the Grammy's Beads Project!

The Black and White are already with Candy, my sister-in-law. The Red are mine. The White and Silver are for Betsy. The Yellow and Bronze are for Wendy. Last, but not least, the Yellow and Blue are for Stacy. This has been a true labor of love. I only hope that Mother knows the joy the beads have given me in the gifts I have been able to give to the family members.

Today I was also able to deliver Amy's bracelet. It is the shiny Green and Green. I am so glad she liked it. I will send the White Bracelet and White earrings to Kim and Betsy as I will not see them before we leave for Florida. I will have to send the two Yellow bracelets and the Yellow earrings to Hannah and Madison and Wendy. I do not expect to be able to see them before we leave.

I will deliver the Red Bracelet and the Yellow and Blue earrings to Kelly and Stacy respectively. We are planning a couple day visit with Stacy and Bryan in Charlotte and will see Kelly there, too.

The final delivery will be the other Red bracelet to Jessica and the other Green bracelet to Jayda, when we get home to Florida.

What fun this has been. I hope that the beads will always be a reminder to each of us who owns them to be just a little bit like the Beautiful Lady who originally bought them, my Mother.

They are so cute.

You asked about a netted rope pattern. There is a necklace in the August 2008 issue of Bead and Button that combines a piece of netted rope and chucky beads. The pattern is there and it is SO unbelievably easy and fast you won't believe it. It uses 6's and 8's but I am going to try smaller beads also.

Good luck and hope you have a wonderful vacatoin!!
