Beady Busy Weekend

After my friday started out rocky (I was in a mini fender bender... a woman backed into me as we exited a parking lot! :( I wasn't very pleased!) the rest of my weekend was relaxing.

Saturday morning, I taught yoga class, which is always great!!! That evening I decided to get started making the brooches for my grandma's (I've been planning on making these for them for AGES!)

Check out my handy work:

UPDATE: tutorial!

They turned out so much better then I imagined! I am sure my grandma's will love them! (As you can see in the picture, I still need to secure the center and attach pin backs to them.)

They took me about 20 mintues each to make! I'm getting really good at this bead weaving thing ;)

I have a tutorial posted on Flickr... It's called "Oh, my beading heart" Here's the link: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/223/470527459_06378a9033_o.jpg (note the heart beads are size 10mm (small) and 14mm (large) :)

I can't wait to see your creations :) Let me know if the instructions don't make sense! ;)
