Designing an Element – Rhiannon Update

Rhiannon is well underway

Rhiannon is well underway

Saturday afternoon I strung 400 crystals onto my yarn.  Later that day I strung 100 more and even later I strung 100 more.  The best laid plans usually fade in the reality test.

The air was blue as I started the center of the square – the loops almost made me crazy.  But the center was done and it was good.

I am 8 rounds away from finishing the first motif – only eight motifs left!  Each motif is about 18 inches square before blocking.

I hope that you like!

  1. With all those beads, won’t it be extremely heavy? Is this for the Stevie Nicks contest? Because I always think of her swirling her scarves/shawls around in the air as if they float.
