Fuschia Necklace working progress

I love Fuschia flowers and have them around during Summer time, on hanging baskets and/or on pots.
When I saw the Fuschia necklace design by Adele Kimpell (, I wanted to make it.
So, I started making it last night and got 2 petals done. I made the pink and white combination Fuschia flowers.
I can't wait to go home and work on this necklace.

Indigo Bunting

I found this beautiful Indigo Bunting pattern by Lori Culligan. This pattern is done in 27 colors of Delica 11/0 seed beads. It measures 6x6 inches (15x15cm).

Some facts about Indigo Bunting: This particular color of indigo bunting is male. Sometimes nicknamed "blue canaries". Females are basically brown, with faint streaking on the breast, whitish throat and sometimes a touch of blue on the wings, tail, or rump. 
Male Indigo Buntings sing from treetops, shrubs, and telephone lines all Summer.

With that note... "Happy Summer!"
