This weekend gone, I turned my needle to getting my restitch of "Holly" finished however I was going great guns until shock horror, I was going to run out of beads! Good Grief! So of to 123 Stitch I go and more beads are on their way to me, also all of the beads and metallic threads for Joan Elliott's "Air Goddess" but shhhhh don't tell the Gardener!
So here is where "Holly" is nearly finished!
|"Holly" Friday 20th Jan|
Please excuse the dim photos in this post I have just taken them at 10:30 in the evening in my dark conservatory! So once the beads arrive I will finish her and do a tutorial for Monique!
I can here you ask, why on earth would I order beads from the US when I could find them here in good Ole NZ, well for one, sometimes I don't feel like trawling all over town to find a package of beads! I also like the convenience of sitting at home ordering and then they arrive at work, 3rd reason is the exchange rate with the US $ at the moment is really good, so it is also cheaper, and I can add to my stash and the Gardener is none the wiser, sneaky.............
Speaking of the Gardener, we had our our first crop of beetroot out of the garden, and beetroot salad was on the menu, So I decided to use the juice and try a little experiment with some fabric.........
So on Saturday, while I was procrastinating about working on "Rose" I gather all the threads and beads for another start.........Its another Pixie Couture..........

That's about it for now, hope you all had a productive weekend as I did, although I did do a little bit of procrastinating!
Have a great week and as always
