I've been working on a couple of projects the last few days. I ordered beading thread and needles from Amazon. The needles weren't the right kind, but that was OK. I realized I could use smaller embroidery needles. It turned out that although I've bought beads in the past, I didn't really have much of a pallet. But that also was OK in the end.
I guess it is time to declare it finished.
I'm going to put something more elaborate in the larger blue rectangle on the first one, but I don't know what yet. And feathers of some kind on both of them in the grey borders.
I've been watching Leah Day's Craftsy class today and I've got ideas for several patterns for the second block.
It is possible to see how much better my stitching is from early parts of these projects to later parts, which is exactly why I am doing them.
Practice, practice, practice.
Not easy to do when sitting at the computer or at the sewing machine has to be done in 26 minute bits. Any more than that and I have trouble getting up and walking.
Take care all.
