Not going to lie. We were given so much time I let procrastination get the better of me.
I spent a grand total of 5 days on this. So PLEASE visit the other participants.
I'm sure you'll be impressed.

As for me lets show you a little bit of what it took to get here.
|This is all I had for an idea when I began.|
There is a right and wrong side to Lacy's Stiff stuff.
It's crazy fuzzy if you use the wrong side.
|Cute but not quite right.|
|Adding the light|
My rule of thumb for any piece is add light, dark and a shimmer.
|Late Night Inspiration|
I didn't like that the top circle flopped when it was cut out.
I tried two things I had around the house.
The Skil saw blade worked the best.
I added a lot of glue so you can't even feel the blade's teeth.
|Chain Attempt #1|
Even my first bead embroidery piece still has no chain. I wear it on a silk cord.
Any suggestions for how to hang this piece would be greatly appreciated.
|Ain't it pretty?|
I waited so long between my first bead embroidery project and my second
that the link to videos that got me through it the first time
It's the last day before reveal when I realize this. What's a girl to do?
You guessed it......head to youtube.
Thankfully this video helped me start to finish off my edges.
I honestly only watched minutes 25-31, but they were clear and helpful.
|I love the movement & height at the top.|
|Chain attempt #2|
I wont bore you with excuses as to why I wasn't completely done. The fault is mine, but done or almost done I'm thrilled I took the challenge and attempted bead embroidery for a second time.
At this rate my next bead embroidery project will be 2017. Ha! I hope I don't wait that long.
Thanks for your time. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
