Mastering the mistakes

I cannot even begin to tell you all the mistakes I made to make this. First there was the one that turned to a ring, then there were several others that just bit the dust! Last night I decided to give it one more shot...everything was going well til ......oh no the thread was tooooo short. I have some bird wrists and it wouldn't even fit me!!! lol So I went to bed and dreamed of this silly mess!!! By now I have almost convinced myself I will never learn to bead. I kept putting it off, even doing some chores not on today's list ...just to not have to face disappointment again. Finally with everything else done and no where else to go with this boo-boo face I dug in!!! What you see here is my final attempt at flat spiral. Well at least for this bracelet...I am happy with the outcome and I think I have finally mastered the elusive stitch!!! Have an awesome day...big hugs


  1. looks like you did a great job! hope my pattern helped some. now are you going to make the other one you have beads for?
