Lattice Cube Frame Bracelet

Lattice Bracelt Framed with Cube Beads 

I love working on this Bracelet.  Very easy to learn and complete it in about two to three Hours depends on your time. The once from today’s Blog are in one color tone.   However they look amazing if you mix three of your similar colors together and just pick up Seed-beads as you go along.  See one of my earlier Blogs.  I just had fun picking up whatever color was in front of my needle

I thought I can go somewhat cheaper with the clasps and went to a store that caries all kind of Craft items.  That was a bad choice as the magnets fell out of its casing only after several days of wearing it.  See my Picture with the blue Bracelet.

Spider in it’s Web

Wonderful sight

This was so great I was able to go to one inch up to this Spider that had made this awesome web between two Junipers in our backyard, every day we, the kids and I had a chance to see what this amazing Spider was up to.  Sometimes it was hiding in the Juniper waiting for some action.  This time it was I believe feeding on a bug.  It was interesting depends from what side I approached this Spider it would see me and move back to its hiding spot.  If I came toward it from his top it would not move so I can only think it did not see me and I was so happy to get these beautiful pictures so close up.

“Spider, Spider what do you see

Not me………

Come closer so I see you

Let me look at you ……ohhhh so beautiful what a delicate web

Just look, don’t touch,

 I will take care of you…..just look

I’ll be good to you”

A Visit to Kingston, Ontario

Several Year ago…let’s say four Years  to be exact, over the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend my Husband and I had this great opportunity to have  a few days to ourselves.  We had a wonderful cottage in the woods available to us and the weather was ok.  Not the very best but just to be together and having time with each other was nice. 

We went on an Artist open house tour all though the nearby area and came across several very neat places and Artists.  It is fantastic to see what some very Creative people come up with and what they call Art.  Each has their own style and ideas.  We visited some very interesting styles of homes….just amazing.  My eyes just took it all in.

On our walks in the forest we found some other wonderful places as well and took some beautiful pictures.  Just have a look and see for yourself.

Zig-Zag Bead Bracelet with Swarovsky Crystals

Zigzag Peyote Stitch Bracelet with Swarovski Crystals

A fun way of creating some zigzag into your daily jewellery.  I have made it with a few beads added on. It will be wider than the pattern ask for to add on some lengths for a more dramatic bigger look it will then also fit wider writs.  At the same time string on less beads and the same Bracelet will become less wide and shorter for a smaller writs.  The Zigzag will work out to a finished look for you to add on the clasp.  This pattern is available at “That Bead Lady”.

Parasitoid Wasp

Parasitoid Wasp

This Wasp decided to take a rest on our house wall this summer.  What a site that was, no idea what this insect was.  Will it sting us with his big long tail?  Get the camera quickly…..take a picture and lets find out what it is?!

          Luckily we have a great book that showed exactly that Insect “Parasitoid Wasp”

          From what we read this Wasp is one of the most beneficial species that inhabit our gardens.  The females walk along tree trunks until they sense a vibration of a boring beetle within. Then, with extreme precision, the females acrobatically curl their abdomen, coil their long ovipositor and drive it through the bark and the inner wood, directly into the unsuspecting larva.  After laying an egg, the females pull out their ovipositor and continue hunting.

The weakened caterpillars become a buffet for the hunting wasp larva, which grows and feeds on the non-vital tissues first, saving the organs far last. 

Ribwarmer for your Winter Days or Skiing

This Ribwarmer is a wonderful addition to have for under a Ski jacket or if you are going for a walk in the Forest.   I love to wear it around the home. Great with a light long sleeve t-shirt top or with a blouse.  It keeps my back nice and warm.  It is not as heavy as a sweater that is sometimes too much for wearing in the home.  The pattern can be modified to make it smaller or bigger if needed.
