Scroll Borders! And a Winner!

I almost let February go by without adding a new pattern to the store. Almost.  At the very last minute, I managed to publish the file for Scroll Borders.  This design is fun and quick to stitch (yes, even though it is done in odd count).

And we have a winner of the Whole Lotta Love #4 bangle.

Our trusty Random Number Generator picked the last of the 28 comments left on the giveaway post.

I've emailed stitchkat for her mailing address. Congratulations!

And thank you to all of you who have made these last eight years on Etsy such an amazing experience. Things just keep getting better!

Be well and get going!

Hi, remember me?

Well, I'm Carol Dean Sharpe and I'm still busy running Sand Fibers, beading and designing and marketing.  What I seem to have forgotten to do these last two and half months, however, is blog.  I apologize! How it is that this blog still averages over 100 page views a day is a mystery. (Or a miracle, perhaps?)

First things first:  I am having a Happy Valentine's Day/Celebrate 8 Years on Etsy sale.  Between now and March 1, use the coupon code 8YEARS to receive a 40% discount at checkout.  And, yes, the 3 for 2 Pattern Program is still in effect during this time.

Second things second:  I am also having a giveaway to celebrate.  On March 1, I will draw a name from the comments left on this post and the winner will receive my Whole Lotta Love #4 bangle. No, not a pattern for the bangle, the bangle itself. lol

To enter the drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment below with the title of your favorite love story (book, movie, tv series). It would be extra fun if you shared why it's your favorite love story, but not required.  It would also be excellent if you were to share this blog post on Facebook, twitter, or whatever other social media you use, but that is also not required. Only one entry per person, please.

Third things third:  If you haven't been in the Sand Fibers store since I last blogged, here are the new patterns I've published.

 Air and Water pattern

And that's all for now, so ... Be well and get going! :)

Sawtooth Wheelies!

What once was an obsession with peyote triangles is morphing into an obsession with peyote hoops. I've beaded about 25 "wheelies" in the last few weeks, most of the Sawtooth variation.  Both the ready-to-wear pendants and the ILLUSTRATED!!! tutorial are now in my store.

These are fun to make and fun to wear. Don't miss out!
