    I did one more right and 3 lefts to use up all my extra spikes.
    Then I started some new cuffs and just finished them !

    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.

          LOL not that fast ! Been working on the cuffs awhile but really , just actual time.....maybe a week apiece....3 days apiece on the armbands. When I get in the groove I can get quite a bit done pretty quick !size 11s a mix of cut and non cuts.


          haven't finished the washing machine yet !

              Still, you work fast! If I worked that fast, it would look like someone tried to finish something fast. Your work is all perfect too. How many hours a day do you spend beading on your average beading days? Somehow if you said you spent 18 hours a day beading it would make me feel better. LOL

                Oooohhh , on a good day maybe 4 hours. sometimes if I'm in a groove maybe 6 , but that's rare ! We have a craft room set up and my wife and I ......well that's what we do now that I'm retired. She does earrings , bracelets , and beaded chokers and sometimes cell phone cases or baby mocs...I do small bags , breastplates , bone chokers....and regalia items...bustles , fans , leggins , mocs , cuffs armbands , dance sticks , etc. , etc.
                Between us we can make about anything.

                My typical day : Get up and have coffee , check e-mail , powwows.com for a few, feed horses , bead from around 9:30 to 11:30 , eat lunch , bead from 12:00 till 2:00 , nap from 2:30 till about 4 , internet till 5 , feed horses , eat supper , watch t.v. a bit , internet and bed around 11.....easy days ! LOL

                  Wow! You really ARE fast! I would have guessed 3 times as much time!

                  I usually have to get all my mom duties done before I can sit down (only one teenager left at home--so it isn't that much...just to get her off to school) and then I need something for noise in the background. I bead outdoors in natural light (I retired to Florida), and maybe I am getting distracted. I enjoy it a lot, but it takes me a long time.

                  It is encouraging to see a finished product faster. I did do some work on a heddle which was faster...but not as fast as you work. Man, I wish I could move like you do! Your work is stellar!

                  You inspire me!!! Having a dedicated room you can go to for this work is a real plus...I have to pack mine up to go outside and then pack it up again to come inside.

                  I'm going to start keeping track of my time. I bet I fritter a lot of it away with distractions.

                      I'm weaving in the bias now...making my teen daughter traditional hair ties. At the pace I'm going, they will be done in 3 months of steady work! Weaving in the bias WILL be slower necessarily (each bead is individually woven). But that's no excuse for my other work. I take too much time...I'm wasting time with distractions, I think.

                      Your work is awesome!

                        Am I reading that right-cut 11??!! Where can a fellow beader find some of those? I love the sparkle the cuts have, but only have them in 13s.

                          • Thanks for the info. I will have to check out CCTP. In the 7 or 8 years I've been seriously beading, I've never seen them. Not looking in the right places, I reckon. LOL!

I have a ton of it that I need for new dance clothes for my family so I figured I should see if I am any good at it. I have been picking up a few tools and am waiting on some sheet metal to arrive...

                                  1. I noticed that the current trend seems to be longer is better. Is there a general consensus on prefered length for grass dancers?
