Busy-ness and The Bracelet Bandwagon

 
Things have been busy around here.  Good busy, but busy.  Sometimes a simple, quick project is just the thing to soothe.  I actually finished these a few weeks ago and never got around to sharing them.
 

These were made with the same pattern I used before:  Rustic I-Cord Wrap Bracelet by Elizabeth Murphy.  Or on Ravelry here.


This one was made of worsted weight cotton scraps versus the sock weight for the other two (too fat for beads).


AND, I made a smaller version of the free pattern for Wrap Around Bracelet by Yuli Handmade.  Really like the smaller beads and yarn much better.   I had to go back and take away all but one wrap of the bigger beaded one!  Too much for this ole gal.  ;) 


They make good Fitbit Camo.  Heehee.

I hope if your days are crazy busy, too, it's the good kind of busy.  And, if you need a quick, easy soothe... hop on the bracelet bandwagon with me.

Too busy and need a break! Maybe I need a bracelet to make me feel better - haha just kidding! These are lovely! Have a great 'rest' of the week!

This IS a good...busy! And...they are adorable. I'm thinking you have a good thing going on here...find a few shops to put them in, and then you will really be busy. so very cute!

Oh my goodness, I love these! A little boho and so pretty. You know I was at Grapefest (grapevine) last fall and picked up some nifty bracelets similar to these from a gal out of Austin-just between you and I-yours are more feminine and pretty!

Cute, cute bracelets!

Ha Ha, that's a great quote. About fitting for me right now. Life has been crazy and we keep wondering what is going on (too much, that's what). Some time to do handwork would be good therapy. As usual your work is brilliant!! Bracelet beauty!

Just when I think life can't throw one more thing our way....it does. Work, family, extended family, house and garden - but an hour with my stitchery keeps me sane! Your little bracelets are adorable.

Tanna, those are the cutest bracelets ever! You are so clever and creative! I think I need soothing, may have to try my hand at making one! I'm all thumbs though...

Pretty bracelets! The only thing I like about being busy is that it makes you appreciate having time to yourself:-)

I love that quote, very reassuring, and the bracelets are darling!

Robin said...

These are super cute, and a great way to use up leftovers! Might need to make a few for me and for gifts... :)

Pammy Sue said...

I really love all the bracelets you've made, Tanna! So pretty with the beads added. I'll have to try that when I have some time and want to play. Been super-busy too with work and life stuff.

Cranberry Morning said...

These are spectacular! I'm going to look up that pattern. What fun! Thanks for the inspiration. :-)

Judy S. said...

Yours are great! I started one but got sidetracked. Sigh. Where'd you get your beads?

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

These look great! I would love to make bracelets :-)

Christine said...

I need a "bracelet break"!
I see you still are enjoying your Mini!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Tanna, yes, life has gotten too busy lately, but I'm hoping next month ... Anyway ... your knitting/crocheting talents are amazing. I'm afraid any time I've tried to learn, I've gotten very tense, crosseyed and crabby!

Kerin said...

Cute, cute bracelet's!
Love the color choices, as well.
Busy is good.
I love being good - busy. I feel like I am getting so much accomplished!

Missed reading your posts, and I'm trying to catch up....

Have a happy, and good- busy day!

Love them. I've still got the pattern marked from when you posted before. One day I'm gonna make some. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Lynne said...

I might be " bracelet inspired". . . these look fun! I like sneaking in the Fit Bit too . . . Tell everyone, right now, how many steps you're getting in each day. (It helps, doesn't it!)
