Patches of Snow: 10 out of 13 patches done

Moving along with my beading, at times with cross-eyes after adding one bead after another and another and another ............. I do love the design and will be very happy to have it as a Christmas ornament, but really not enjoying all this beading. I don't mind at all adding a few beads here and there on a project as it makes it more interesting, but this is a little more than I bargained for when I bidded on Ebay for it, but I am going to see it through, no matter what (big smile).
The next Christmas project won't have any beading at all, if I can help it as I will need some time to recuperate from all this.
It is an interesting design though and at some level do not regret having purchased it and will leave it at that :-)
That is what I like about trying different things, best way to find out the techniques that you enjoy the most and do less of the ones that you don't enjoy as much. I am not saying that I will never do anything like that as I may see some design that I just have to have and will probably go for it.
Next photo will be with the last 3 patches done and then will move on to another project.
Today I will also be starting the cyberclass called "The Sky's the Limit" with Beth Robertson and Suzanne Howren, but will probably not be posting any photos unless I get permission as those are samples stitches and I don't want to give away their secrets. I am looking forward to getting started on these. Those classes are based on the numberous books that they have written about "Stitches for Effects". This series should come quite handy the next time I have a sky to stitch.
Well, better go back to my stitching as I have a lot more stitching to do before the day is over.

I always love to see your work because you do such beautiful work. You should be very proud of your artistry. Thanks for bringing beauty into the world with your needle and thread.

This is really very pretty! I love whites/offwhites. I do certainly appreciate the time it takes to add all the beads!

Beading can be dull. I had 808 on the last hardanger cushion I did and I'm in NO hurry to repeat it!!

Well there are certainly lots of little beads in the toe section and I can understand you getting a little fed up with them all, but you are now nearly finished and can then move onto something else

Hi Pierrette,

I agree that it's fun to try different techniques but if you don't like them, move on to what you do! That's why you won't see any Hardanger or Blackwork on my blog. I do appreciate what others stitch it's just not for me!!!

This is looking wonderful and must really be sparkly in person!
