I don't know about you, but I'm running myself ragged this month trying to keep up with everything. Between work and family, decorating and shopping, I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day. Macrame is my relaxation. My "me" time. I haven't been able to do as much as I'd like with all the other things, but I did manage to make a really pretty bracelet this weekend. It's done in colors pulled from my "raku" color palette:
I've worked mostly with the colors found on the right side of this pile, so just to challenge myself a bit, I set out to work from the left side. The colors there are more of the olive greens and the coppery golds and oranges. I tried. Really I did! I finally had to add a bit of navy to get something to suit me:
You wouldn't think it came from the same pile of beads, would you?
If you missed the other pieces that rose from this mound, you can find those posts here and here and here. And if you're looking for me, I'll be in the kitchen making candy and cookies and cheese balls for our family get-together this weekend!
