You want beads?



You get beads!


(this one's in progress)

Thanks for all the comments! Okay, that was clear - the quilt needs a bit more. So I added it!
Let me say once again for those who skipped that part the first time - the fabric is not dyed by me, but by Lisa Walton from Dyed and Gone to Heaven. I subscribed to her Monthly Metres club for a while, and also to the Beautiful Beads club, so I have plenty of beads! I've never done any beading, but just dived in yesterday and had a lot of fun. To be continued...

I think, it's lovely! You have used the good colors and then in shapes of the stitching. I like it!

Dit ziet er heel mooi uit Linda, daar ben je vast wel een paar uurtjes mee bezig geweest.

and the bead goes on (Nancy Sinatra, en ja, beat ipv bead, maar het klinkt net zo) geweldig met die kralen, ik zou alleen niet teveel met een duidelijke kader maken, blauwe rand om roze, is te opvallend georganiseerd. Heb je ook van die glitter 3D lijm, die ze voor 3D kaarten gebruiken? Is ook heel mooi om te highlighten, in goed Nederlands gezegd, en is er in meerdere kleuren.
