The dreaded bead

Hoping this will motivate me to bead.

How have I not thought to label my bead containers before!?

Happy New Year!

While I might not have finished her in Time, family obligations and a flare up of back pain kept me away from the needle, she is none the less cherished as a finish! 

Miss New Year's Fairy by Nora Corbett.
Conversion:
DMC 310 for black coffee, 677 for deep fennel, a blend of 677/746 for deep fennel/blue beadboard, B5200 for frosted sage and 3371 for whatley woodlands.

Kreinik 019 was substituted for 011HL and 028 for 102.

Mill hill beads used: 03016, 02022, and 10036.

Backstitch completed using DMC 632.

May 2018 be filled with floss and fabric!

Last Stash

A final bit a stash before the end of 2017! The moment the Stitchers Shop was released I knew I had to have it for my village! The Maiden

Tea Notions

I designed a tea wallet for my boss the wine lover!

It can hold 6 teas (or packets of Emergen-C for cold season!).
