Pam Kellogg's book was a lot of fun to work with. I'll be writing about it in detail for the next issue of CQMagOnline, but in the meantime, here are some pictures.
Once all the seams were stitched, I got to add the beads. It's been too long since I played with all my beads! It was a good warm-up for the big Bead Expo that Interweave is putting on in Portland this week-end. I plan on doing a little shopping...just a little....
The seams looked really nice before, but I can't help but think that the beads bring them to life.
My friend KT loves things that sparkle and shine, so I just had to go for it!
And meanwhile, the college boy is home for spring break and comes into the sewing room every now and again. Here he is explaining some new programming language he is learning for the fun of it while he is on vacation from school.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed his elaborate technical monologues. I can even just barely sort of semi follow them!
His girlfriend is here too and God Bless her has brought her needlework. I am going to introduce her to the embellisher tomorrow.....should be fun!!!
