Blogger Love!

My friend Jin - that's her button in my right-hand column - has decided to spread some blogger love! Every so often, she'll create one of her blog readers in the form of a pastry. This is how Jennifer sees Moi, as a beautiful silver beaded necklace, with a large silver and turquoise beaded bead.

Now, you know I just HAVE to try and duplicate this in beads, right? ;)
Mmmmmm, finally, beads I could EAT!!!! I just recently ordered some Jin treats, they traveled well, all the way here to Canada, from Wisconsin. You've GOT to try them, they're out of this world!

Well, this might make me want to bead a little. I haven't been beading actually. I got hooked on something new... Yeah, like I need a new hobby... But I really like this. I've taken up Crochet. WITHOUT beads! Just a hook and some yarn. Good times man! ;)

Crochet Tutorial

I'll start with this: Diana, YOU ROCK!!!
Had you not suggested that photobucket thingie, I wouldn't have tried to save these as JPEGs, and I don't think I would have ever managed to get them up here. Thank you!

These will get larger when you click on them, so I hope they're nice and clear for you. So far, everyone who's tried it has loved it.










Addendum:
I would like to let you all know how much I've appreciated all of your words of thanks, and personal emails. It brings me so much pleasure to know that this tutorial was helpful in getting you all on the way to understanding the technique; and all of your comments are wonderful, and have left me more grateful than you could ever imagine.

Thank you again
Jewels


J'aimerais vous laisser toutes savoir combien j'apprécie vos mots de remerciement et vos courriel personnels. Cela m'amène autant de plaisir de savoir que ce tuto vous ais tous aidés à mieux comprendre la technique; et aussi que tous vos commentaires sont merveilleux, et me laissent plus reconnaissante que vous ne puissiez savoir.

Merci encore
Jewels

And sorry, these are the only two languages I write fluently so far. ;)

Quick question:

Does anyone here know how I can upload a link to a PDF file from my harddrive, so that I can share it with my readers? I'd love to share my new Bead Crochet tute with you. Thanks.
