New Patterns: "Circuits" and "Deco Heart"



I don't know what other people do when they get up 5:30 a.m. because they've been doing more coughing than sleeping, but I brew a cup of coffee and on the pretext of checking my email, I sit down at the computer. Inevitably, I don't check my mail and open my beadtool program instead.

These are two new patterns I'm dying to try out. I figure about Christmas time I should be able to get to these.

GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooo jealous - I will have to try that software out, but in the meantime I will just sit here gazing and drooling....

I love so much these designs. The deco heart are absolutely fabulous and the circuits so originals. I am jalous too of your great imagination and creativity.

I like your color combinations for the deco hearts - Beadtool is incredibly addictive. I once fell down that rabbit hole and didn't resurface for over five hours. But I did end up with a folder full of stained glass inspired patterns!

Thanks Nancy! How many hundred projects have you completed in the last few days, by the way? Laughing.
Pat & Morwyn, thank you...Beadtool IS addictive, for certain. Deco hearts is my favorite of this batch, I think and the colors are SO unusual for me - they aren't really deco...I'm thinking more Art Nouveau? The problem with beadtool is that you can produce the patterns faster than you can bead them. Adding up to being even farther behind your "schedule" than usual.

I like'em!
The circuits are cool too, great color combos Linda. You just keep this up, and I'll have to splurge and get my own beadtool... ;p

Wow! I just came across your blog in the usual link to link to link way from the beading ring surf and am so glad I did. I have never seen anything like this before and wish I had as much ambition as you do. These are the kind of things I think about but would probably never finish. I am in awe! Thanks for sharing and doing what you obviously have a great talent and inspiration to do! Take care, Lisa C. (www.abeadaday.blogspot.com)

I like your patterns. I sit down to the computer and do everything but what I sat down to do. I can imagine what would happen if I started playing with designs. That's why I don't play solitaire! I find the words or nonsense we have to type in for verification interesting sometimes. To publish this comment I have to type in "proart" as in who isn't?
