Work in Progress: Belated Lariat

Although I was prepared for having very little time to bead this past December, I had no idea just how long I would end up going without picking up a needle and Fireline. Way back in the very first week of December, I shared a quick look at one of the final pieces in the Egyptian Gods series. The lariat that I had started for Shu is still not complete, although now that I’ve got my groove back, it should finished by tomorrow.

Knowing that I’d be way behind in finishing this year’s challenge doesn’t make it any easier to accept that I’ve missed a deadline. I was already a little sad that I would have to break with tradition by not making the final design in a rainbow palette (unless I have time for one more Isis necklace). If I work really hard, and it doesn’t take long to complete my entry into this year’s Ugly Necklace Contest, I should be able to start my 2014 challenge by the end of January. Wish me luck!
