Beading Detail 2

13 March 2009

Yep, another Friday the 13th—two in a row! No matter at our house.

Of course, Kyle did stay home sick again, today . . . hmmm . . .

And, it was another day of lots of hand-sewing for me. But, Crystal’s overskirt is all beaded, now, and I’m just about ready to call her underskirt finished as well. The problem with this incredibly beautiful fabric we chose for her, is that the pattern begs to be beaded. And while there are some really obvious opportunities for bead placement, there are dozens more that taunt me. Every time I think I’m done, I find another little flower that needs two red beads or a scrolly thing that wants a gold bead at its tip. I fear I’m a little “OCD” on this one! But, it’s gorgeous!

After putting my husband to bed at a reasonable hour, I once again, stayed up ’til four-ish assembling the underskirt, and getting Lionel’s outer doublet ready for their fitting on Sunday.

I was tired, but it was a very productive day.
