Therese and Christine return to host A Time to Stitch #6 - thanks so much! For this challenge, they inspired us to use a graphed, word or picture chart for any of four stitches shown above. I fell in beady-love with one of the examples Therese used - the middle star which was created by Eridhan Creations. I was so smitten with the design, I went a little crazy and bought a four-pack of patterns which all use a twisted peyote design. Here's a collage of the patterns I purchased.
All the tutorials use a combination of word and picture charts as you see here.

Since I was working on this over the holidays, I used most of the finished items as ornaments and they received rave reviews from the giftees. I stitched up three of the Desert Rose Patterns and one each of the other three. Here are three variations of Desert Rose.
I thought this was very poinsettia-like - perfect for the holidays!
Next up was the Polaris tutorial. This one was a little trickier.
But my favorite was the very simple Twisted Triangle variation and, as I worked on it, I thought it would look great as a pendant on a spiral neckstrap so here's what I came up with.
Thanks, Therese for introducing me to Eridhan's tutorials and to you and Christine for hosting another great challenge. Be sure to visit the other bead artists for A Time to Stitch #6:
