Blog Candy and Amulet Bags



Well I seem to get a flurry of stuff done, then it takes me awhile to get something more finished. I finally assembled "Blue Waters" bead knit amulet bag and I had started another little bag and it is also finished. So here they are. You can see the work in progress Of "Blue Waters" here. I finished this amulet bag off with a 3 strand chain and added little beaded tassels on each side.

For the new amulet bag, I didn't take photos until it was finished. I used up a bunch of assorted sizes and colours of beads left over from other projects, I love doing that. I again used a 3 strand beaded chain but this time I made a beaded pendant on the point of the flap.

Now to the blog candy. My visit counter is fast approaching the 3000 mark so I think a celebration is in order. Between now and reaching the 3000 mark (I may go over that a little since my injured foot keeps me off the computer sometimes) anyone who leaves a comment on this post telling me why they would like to win their choice of either one of the amulet bags will be entered in a random draw. For an extra entry become a follower of my blog or let me know if you already are a follower.
Remember you will have your choice of one of the amulet bags pictured in this post, I want you to be happy with your prize.

Wow Joanne. That's a pretty nifty prize if I do say so myself. BIG GRIN and just to let you know, I'm very partial to the one with the various beads used. That looks so pretty.
I'll have to check and see if I'm a follower yet, but if I'm not, I will do that right now.

Wow, is right! I love my little bag with my initial and I'd love to win one of these to give to my daughter!

Joanne, these are lovely and I would love a chance to win one! While I really like them both, I think my favourite of the 2 is the multicoloured, various bead one.
Congrats on the #, that's wonderful!!!

I love these bags, and would be honoured to have either one of them! But if I had to choose, I would choose the first one! I am also a faithful follower, as you are on my Google Reader!

I love your work Joanne, and if I win one of these, I will wear it soooo proudly...I have a small collection of these little guys, even a few antique ones. They are not exactly like yours but this has been something people have loved to do for a long time. Would love to add to the collection.

Your beaded bags are lovely. I think I like your top bag the best. My daughter would love to have something as beautiful as this to wear. She would do it proud. Not like me and shorts and a Tee. I see you do Artella. They have some pretty neat stuff.

Joanne, your amulet bags are beautiful. Not only beautiful but adorable. It always amazes me when I see how small the items are that you knit.

Joanne, as always, your bead work is impressive! I can't make a single one go where I want it!! Being partial to the water and living near the ocean, I love the Blue Waters. I've spent the last 3 weeks treating my face for skin cancer so I can't go near the beach at all these days. At least I can smell the ocean and hear the foghorn! Lovely, lovely work!

Are you serious? I love the multi-colored bag with the pendant! They are both wonderful and your offer is fantastic!

I follow your blog through my "favorites" list or through byhand. Is there another way?
