I'm a Soft Flex Trio Winner!!

How exciting!! Look what I won!! I was so excited to receive this package in the mail on Friday!! I LOVE THESE COLORS!!

I entered to win on Sara Hardin's blog (a.k.a. Soft Flex Girl) by making a comment and was thrilled to find out that I was one of several winners of one of their new colorful beading wire "Trios". The package is called "Egg Hunt" and the colors included are: Chrysoprase, Amethyst and Green Turquoise...You know they were having a good time while naming all these great colors!!

I also received a guide to the other Soft Flex Trios color combos and they are AMAZING!! The funny thing is, if I had a chance to pick the colors, I would have picked these and probably the "Tranquility" pack. However, there are so many to choose from, it's sort of tough to narrow it down!!

Here is a link directly to the Soft Flex website so you can look through all the combinations. On the back of this package, I see that they have other holiday packs such as: Fire Works, Trick or Treat, Kiss me I'm Irish...too darn cute!! :)

Now, what to make....? I have studied Sara's designs as well as her fellow Soft Flex designer, Jamie Hogsett's designs and just love when they weave the wire as though it were hemp cord or something. I think I'll try that.

I just need to find my knotting guide so I can get some ideas!! The beauty of using wire rather than hemp is the ability to use even small hole beads like crystals which is a bit more difficult with other cording.

Wish me luck!! Oh dear, where are my manners...? To Sara and Soft Flex, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
