The fabulous Sarah from Saturday Sequins posted a fun hop, and I jumped right on board!
Never one to miss an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, I quickly decided to combine this challenge with another. I'm part of a FB group called Operation Tackle that Bead Stash. It's a totally fun group, and we are collecting Bead Quilt Squares for the Bead-It-Forward Quilt Project. You can learn more about it here
Now, did I happen to metion that I've not done bead embroidery? Nope. Not ever.
I didn't make the mistake of saying, 'How hard could it be?' I have at least learned that lesson!
But I did keep putting it off...until yesterday!
It's not too bad, but not nearly as pretty as I wanted it. Now that I've got my feet wet, I'm going to try a few different styles, especially because I have some really cool sequins I wanted to use, but they were a bit too big for this design.
That's a very sad attempt at a sun in the upper right. It was also a lot harder to keep straight ends than I had imagined. Overall, I'm very happy I got it made, and I really, really love how the sequins look.
Thanks Sarah, for this great challenge. Looking forward to more, since I have more sequins!
Here's the rest of the crowd! Go check out their cool stuff!
