I didn’t work on much this month besides beads. I worked a little on two things that weren’t beads, both cross-stitch. I finished another bracelet on October 3, but didn’t feel like making a separate post for it. It’s the cane-back bracelet from the Quick + Easy Beadwork, a special issue of Beadwork magazine. It says “display until November 5”, but I think it’s gone from the shelves here (at least at the grocery, which has limited space for magazines). It doesn’t seem to be on Interweave’s site yet. I had issues starting this (I think I restarted three times) and ending it (I had to end my thread near the end and for some reason had serious issues with it), but overall, I enjoyed working on it. It’s the first thing I’ve done that was not peyote stitch.

And this is the finished bracelet:
There’s something else I want to make from the magazine with two-hole beads, which I understand how to do, but can’t quite manage it; I’ll try again at some point.
I worked a little on 99 by Ink Circles; I’m finished with bottle 66 and once I finish the shelf, I’ll be 2/3 of the way through.
I also worked a little on the temperature bookmark (info here):
