Grandson and I stopped by the craft store yesterday after his annual check-up at the eye doctor. I was looking for some beads to add to a challenge piece which I have been working on on again and off again for several months without getting that oh-now-it’s-done feeling. Something just did not feel right. While showing it to my mom, she said it looked like an underwater scene, and I could see what she meant. This morning I realized how I could add to that look with some simple beading so off we went.
These are my first proper crystal beads; they are ever so sparkly and shiny. Love them!
Most of my old bead collection went into the Make a Boob stash, so I meticulously had to pick out appropriate beads, one bead at the time.
It took a while, but finally I had a nice spread.
The rest of my childfree time went into adding beads to the quilt, and to hand stitch the sleeve. Done! I’ll post pictures of the quilt when the challenge is finished.
Did I fill my quilting quota of the day? Yes indeed!
