Weekly Challenge #221: "Beads of Courage"

Beads of Courage is an Arts in Medicine that supports kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses and their families.

Some of the things you can collect beads for are:
  Needle pokes, overnight stays in hospital, isolation, mobility 

challenges like bed rest or casting, hair changes, tube insertions or 

removals, therapies, doctors appointments, surgeries, xrays, 

ultrasounds, infusions, radiation, oxygen/respiratory support, 


So this week's challenge is to use 'beads' in our tangles.

I wasn't sure if I would participate in this challenge, however, on Facebook I saw a post about using the pattern 'Narwal' in different ways and that is when I thought, hey I could make the beads in the shape of 'Narwal' and so here is my entry.

I hope you all have a lovely week - stay safe and smile :)
