Now that there is a chill in the air....literally it's flipping freezing in New England tonight...I'm sure I'll be beading and blogging more often.
Did you get your most recent issues of Bead&Button and Beadwork magazines? Do you turn the corner of the page down when you see a project you would ike to try? Yesterday I turned down about 8 corners of the Beadwork and 3 of Bead&Button. Then that dreaded moment came when I started going through the supply list.....I've been avoiding the two-hole beads, but realized after all the inspiration I felt, it was time to pick up a few tubes....
In other beady news, I signed up for Therese & Christine's A Time To Stitch (ATTS) challenge!
I am super excited and grateful to them for including some references to Bead-It-Forward in the sign-ups' posts! I will be revealing some Bead-It-Forward squares for the reveal, but I also plan to work on another charted item too! The reveal is January 10!
I have already completed a couple squares for Bead-It-Forward for next year. I had a heck of a time with this embroidery though and it's puckering on three sides..
But - what I didn't realize until the first day I wanted to wear it, was that the enclosure holes for the pearls were too small! So it sat in one of my "things to work on" drawers for the last two year until earlier this week, when I finally redid them and got it functioning finally!
Time to go buy a blue or brown or cream or white top I think!
