I guess I really can't help myself, I've made another beaded shawl pin ring. I had planned to make a nice, oh so instructive tutorial on how to make them, but I couldn't take a decent close up without everything going fuzzy. Additionally, I'm not sure how to clearly word my instructions. It's not the same as writing a crochet pattern, there's a measure of "do it until it looks right" making the rings. I think I will work on instructions though-- These things are fun and addictive to make.
Now I am going back to fight the good fight with the sewing machine. I really need to work on my skills. I guess it would help if I had a seam ripper... and a clue as to what I'm doing!
