Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 23

I once observed a herringbone stitch class that had painfully derailed.  The teacher was talented and capable, but the chemistry just wasn't there and things didn't click.  I kept seeing beautiful things made with herringbone stitch and heard all kinds of wonderful things, but after seeing the class go awry, I was a little put off by it.

The prompt for Day 23 of the Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge was to learn a new technique.  I decided to finally try my hand at herringbone stitch and started a bracelet.  It wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be and can't wait to finish this piece.

Herringbone rocks! I'm so glad you gave it another try - it's one of my favorite stitches because the drape is so soft and supple.
