But thankfully, due to me buying Nguyen's bead and kreinik stash, I had the kreinik needed at last!
Two days of beading. Argh
See that awesome butterfly in the corner there? That's the needle case/beading case that Nguyen made. It has magnets, to hold it to the fabric, so it both stays in one place, AND holds needles without them wandering around. AND the best part is that the sliding lid clicks closed...meaning if you use it for beads (as I did) then no beads go everywhere when you tip the frame over to thread under at the start and end of stitching! Very important factor for me, most beading days start with me spilling 50 odd beads on the ground, and then 15 mins of me on my hands and knees picking them up.
|Back stitching finished|
There was a truly disturbing number of beads on the dress. No wonder it took me so long, but still, now it's done...PRETYYYYYYY
