Beading away


It is going to snow today!  It has been such a balmy December in Michigan, but snow is on the way and maybe some freezing rain too.  I decided to stay inside!  I am beading the center of the flower and making great progress!  About half done!

The Flower center

 I did a bit more on the petals on the left and added more sequins and beads to a lot more of the other petals. The center of the flower was calling out and I started beading the center.....it will all be beads and crystals.

Busy, Busy!

I can certainly tell it is Holiday Season!  Things are really busy at my house as  I am sure they are at yours!  I am stitching a little bit but not much to show you right now.  I did finish this custom stitch guide for a gal and it is available if you are looking for one.  Tombstone Tish is by Leigh Designs and is  number 5015.    Details are on the tab for guides above.

Meanwhile, I am off to cook and clean and wrap presents again!  Back soon with an update on the stocking!

Starting the petals

The top half zig zags are done.  The top set of berries are done, and I have started working on the poinsettia petals.  I had one stitch in mind that did not work so I did the ripit stitch and have restarted!
