Recently I've been over-stressed, to the point where I couldn't even find peace and quiet at meeting for worship (I attend a Quaker church). So I decided it was time for a new craft project! I happened into a bead shop during a 50% off sale and got a handful of 8mm beads, then strung them together with embroidery thread using a simple macram knot.

It's not big enough to wear, but a perfect size for my hands!

Here you can see the knots-- to make the loops, I just tied a really loose knot, followed by a tight one. It helped to have a yarn needle to tighten them as I went.

I tied both ends to a larger bead, and tucked the knots inside for a clean finish!

And now I'm a lot calmer and things are going better!

gorgeous! good job on this.

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley
