It's better thsn low 20's in the daytime and teens to single digits at night BEFORE the wind chill, Sarah!  I'm dying up here! Right now it's only 10 bloody degrees!  I must say, though, it makes me very grateful for Mac and Zoe; they are excellent heaters!  they frequently have contests, to see who can snuggle against me the tightest.It's funny, but just a tad annoying, 'cos it feels like they're trying to burrow directly into my side.  Ow!

Karin, this is such a stunner!!!!! Wow. The colors are great, and the design, too. I think you´ve done some great beading, because it is so even and correct. 


Great work. Big Smile

It is pretty, but I wonder what it useful for?

I don't know if necklaces are useful. People do like wearing them though!

Greetings from Karin.

This is beautiful.  Do you know of any free tutorials on this stitch...I've gone crazy for off-loom weaving projects and learned almost all the stitches Beadwork and Bead & Button have given us over the years, but haven't seen this one before.  Thanks for sharing this lovely bracelet.


Greetings & Blessings from Sunny Florida

Sandra, Ogalala (or Oglala as it is sometimes spelled) is an old stitch and directions should be easy to find. Mastering Beadwork by Carol Huber Cypher has a great tutorial in it for Oglala. I'd just google for them as they really should show up. A friend of mine did a necklace in red with some pearls mixed in and it was a stunner........... Donna

Sorry Sandra and Donna,

I missed your post. If you google 'ogalala' and then go into pictures, you'll find a tutorial in drawings there. That's where I got it from.

Have fun!
