I Did It!
I am so proud too.
I've wanted to try bead embroidery for years, but hearty helping of fear and a dash of self-doubt had been stopping me. I've even had the stiff stuff and suede backing waiting for more than a year. Then there was a blog hop sign-up.

Blog hops have been the key to pulling me out of my shell when it comes to creating jewelry. I've tried so many new things and even impressed myself with what I've been able to accomplish. Oh and the best part I make time to bead without guilt AND finish a project on time. Yes, blog hops are awesome.

Sally of Sublime Studio made this one even better than most by making videos to get us started, keep us going and even fix problems. Click the Creating with Cabochons button on the right to check them out. You'll be glad you did.
Thank you Sally! I know I wouldn't have done it without you.

1. Hours of beading will wear the gilders paste off in the shape of my thumb.
2. Bead embroidery projects don't test my patience if I'm expected to be in bed. (So there was a bright side to that concussion.)
3. Cuticle scissors are great for cutting the excess fabric around my beaded piece.
4. Bead hoarding makes projects like these seem sanctioned by fate. Yep EVERYTHING was already in my stash.
5. My proudest accomplishments always turn out HUGE!
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm so glad you did.
