Yea! I'm so glad you like it.  It's beaded tapestry crochet. The bag is all single crochet stitches with a bead in each stitch and the "chain" part is all chain stitches with a bead in every other stitch. I was starting to get worried that the glass beads were getting kind of heavy and I was afraid it was going to be to heavy to wear.

I was going to make the fringe with all clear beads but as I was just beginning to add the fringe I remembered something that happened to me many years ago.  It was close to Halloween and we had gotten a bag of apples. They looked so good I couldn't wait to get the caramel on them and just picked one up and "briefly" rinsed it under the faucet, sat down and bite into it. It was so good and juicy. After another bite or two something on my shirt caught my eye. I looked down and there were all these teeny tiny little "dots"(baby spiders)  moving around on my shirt and up my arm.  Needless to say that shirt came off really fast as I ran outside brushing off spiders as I ran. Their web covered the stem part of my apple and apparently I woke them up. After this memory entered my brain I decided to have each little line of fringe end with one tiny black bead. So those are all her babies you see. Anyway, Happy Halloween everyone and don't forget to wash those apples really well. Wink

It was amazing to start with and now there is a wicked story to go with it!!!

We have tiny green catapillers hanging from the maples at the mo.  I look like I'm crazy as I walk my dog, doggying and darting to avoid them.....but I was caught in a rain of catapillers once...so I have a wee freak about them...I haven't had to deal with spiders like that much tho....but I think I understand hehehe

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

OK, that made my macaroni and cheese squirm a bit in my tummy...bleh! I HATE spiders!

That's an amazing bag though - gorgeous, even if it does relate to spiders... Smiley

I received from nicoleburdsall yesterday and I love it!  Only took it off to sleep then right back on this morning.  Everyone at work LOVED it and commented.  I work at a pre-school so this was fitting and the kids LOVED it too!  Thanks for my fabulous lil witches hat barrette, super super adorable!

All the shots you will see are on my head because it is just too cool to take off!!

Thank you so much, elocinNicole!! I hope your package turns up soon - have you had any luck with the PO??

After sitting on the phone with 1800askusps, there was no idea where it could be and it had probably been delivered to the address as listed.  I informed the woman that there is no such address.  She verified that and really wasn't much help.

I then called the local PO and they looked it up and said that the 'delivered' status was manually entered and 1 of 2 things would most likely happen with it.  1.  It would be delivered but it would take a lot longer.  or 2. It would be returned to you.  I still have hope that it'll turn up.  I'm about 1 mile away from the zip that was used and about 2miles away from their post office...if that. 

So glad you liked yours.  Cheesy
