A Good Idea



I posted a photo of my 3 x 3 assemblage on Face Book today. Someone asked how I was going to attach them. I said I thought I would just tack the corners to keep from adding more stitching to the small pieces. Someone commented that I could put a bead between each piece as a spacer.  My first thought was, egad, what a lot of work. But the more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. I started the assembling tonight and it goes quite quickly. I am using my bead soup to find beads to blend in with the colors and beading thread which is strong and can hold up to the beads. I had  saved the plastic cover for something I bought at Costco, I think. It is perfect for holding my supplies.





I think I will enjoy the meditative aspect and handling each little piece.

Here is my drawing from today – my keys.


Our sweet little granddaughter, Paige, has had one ear infection after another. Today, she had tubes put in her ears. Surgery was successful, and, she woke up smiling!

    I think the beads will add beautifully to the work. Paige is such a doll & growing so quickly. Happy Creating.

    Paige is growing so quickly and is just so adorable. Who wakes from surgery looking that cute?!! I love the bead spacer idea! It is kind of like a rosary for the year. 🙂 Have a good rest of the week.
