I have always maintained that "a picture is worth a thousand words"...it is way easier to show someone what you are talking about than to try describing it.
If you have pics of special things you've created...I'm sure we'd all love to see!
Some of you may have seen these pins...as I made them 3 years ago...as Christmas gifts for all the gals in my family. The pic shows several in various stages (and colours). Took several hours to make each one...but they all loved them...and now wear them every year!
Not much activity in this thread, is that because beading takes so long :-)
I've finished the beading on my Phase II Japan bead embroidery, Calm Flow.
It has taken me 4 months and I beaded pretty much every day on it, although only for a short time most days. I was sheer joy to do. The design by Reiko Matsukawa is very elegant with only two colours of bead, black and pewter, and two techniques, couched lines and random stitched.
It will be made up into a folio but I want to show it to my tutor before I do the finishing.
