That is the question. My dear friend Kaite gave me this beautiful hand beaded pin for my Bday.
She also sent me a selection of beads to compliment the meager selection I had along with proper thread and instructions.
After a couple enquiries as to weather I had done anything with the gifts other than wear the beautiful pin?
I decided to try my hand at a small pin while all my found wool garments were shrinking in the washer.The Blue Beauty is the pin Kaite made for me.
Gorgeous isn't it?
The center is a small opaque shank button. It might be my GM's not sure. I started with it at the center and added at random keeping the green theme.
I am stitching onto a scrap of my handmade felt.
So far so good.
How much longer? Are we there yet?
Most of an afternoon and some of the evening later I had beaded a circle onto the wool.
I did it ! My finished beaded pin. To Bead or not to Bead?
Unsure at this time
I'm not sure if I'm a beader but this one was challenging and the results are pleasing.
Thankyou Kaite for the push .
