    I should have brought a strand of double-drilled labradorite to see what beauty you could dream up. This is just too darling.

    Thanks, chickies!

    Merilee–no worries… I have some of that on its way. :) Wanda reminded me of the double drilled stones with her design. I had done some of these a couple of years ago for my once a year show. :) Since it is coming up again, I thought I should try this again. Fortunately there are many more 2 holed stone choices than there were that first year. :)

    Deb–I wanted to make it adjustable and needed 2 buttonholes but it was a boring stretch if you buttoned it in the longest one so I added the magatamas and didn’t even see the “bow” until I was done! :)

    This is lovely, I love the colours! The work (is it crochet ?) is very impressive.

    The stitch is actually a quilting stitch used to do buttonholes and edge and sew quilts together when things were all sewn by hand. I just did the loop around the 2 strands of waxed linen to hold them together and make them look finished. My grandmother did buttonholes this way. I learned a lot of cool tricks from here. :)

    Her, not here. She is no longer here–she went to her heavenly home almost a year ago at age 98.

    I’m not really a “pink person.” But the way you have used the color in this design is excellent. Great design and use of color. :D

    Fabulous design Becky. Isn’t Rhodonite an interesting stone? You’ve certainly made it “pop” with your components and your creativity.

    Thank you! This rhodonite even has some of the mahogany color in it so it is one of my favorite strands!
