Something challenging…

About four years ago I bought these funky yo yo beads and a pattern to make a bracelet that involves wrapping them in seed beads.  I periodically take out the project,  look at the beads, and then put them away, because the task and the pattern seem so daunting.  Only, tonight I decided to finally give it a stab.  And it was hard and I struggled and got really frustrated and I almost gave up.  But, I realized that this is a recurring theme with me.  If something doesn’t come easily, I lose interest or I give up.  It may be why I have so many PIGs haunting my life.

So, this time, I’m going to persevere.  I had to start over twice and I didn’t get very far, but I’m pretty sure that if I stick it out, the result will be a very cool bracelet.  And I may not ever want to make another one after I finish it, but at least I’ll know that.  And maybe I’ll even get better at making them and want to make more.  But I’ll tell you…those seed beads are really, really small and my eyes aren’t as young as they used to be!

Anyway, here’s what I’ve got so far.  I’ll keep you posted on progress.

    I’m so proud of you!! Not only is this a PIG with tiny intricacies beyond belief, but it matches the hat and cowl COMPLETED 2012 PIGs from earlier this week. For cryin out loud! You are creating an ‘outfit’!!! Way to go. You are still inspiring me.
