Beads, Beads and.......more Beads!!!

I am having so much fun stitching this piece, but those beads..... yikes!! I am glad I'm beading as I go because there are tons of them. I love the linen I am stitching this on, it is so perfect for this design.


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

I can certainly sympathize! At first I thought you were going to say you were having fun with them. I was going to ask you if I could send Stargazer over ;o) LOL!

This is looking fantastic. The beads are really lovely and I can see why you are beading as you go. It makes it more fun that way.

Your mermaid looks wonderful on that ocean-y fabric! Beading drives me crazy...but I love how they look on the fabric. So much sparkle!

Ruth said...

Wow! So I guess you stitch without hoops, huh. :) I just hate life without a hoop so I'd be going nuts trying to do all the beads at the end.

She's beautiful!

I always have little beads all over when I add them, have to figure out a better system I guess.

This is really nice, I love the fabric. Thanks for the update on St Petersburg too, it's turning out beautiful!

This piece is just so beautiful. I love the beading even though it's a pain. That is the way to do it though...bead as you go...I wish I thought of that on some of my pieces that are now UFO's because all that is left to do is the beading.
