Borders - Phase 8 - Beading
More beads?!? Absolutely. No major project of mine is complete without the thousands of beads that make most people's eyes cross and mine roll across the floor after a day of too much beading!
These beads are the ones in the smaller outer borders (ivory size 11 seed beads) and along the outer edge (gold size 8 seed beads). They could not be done before attaching the facing to the border because they'd be in the way of the presser foot of the sewing machine.
Thankfully, while there are a lot of these beads, this is easy beading to do. Stitch one bead in each space. Repeat. About a thousand times.
Tomorrow I have an Inside the Envelope for you. Once inside the vintage spacesuit pattern, I found too many interesting things to ignore.
Parting Shot: Archaeology. I received this journal today from my brother, who is an archaeologist. He co-authored and illustrated the article contained therein. He is quite the learned sibling!
